our new dining room

I started putting it back together the other day, but then decided I wanted to add a very subtle touch of blue to the back of my china cabinet.  So I took out the things I had returned to their shelves—cursing myself and my “great ideas.”

The new paper and paint!

A color change so subtle, I’ll likely be the only one who notices . . .

I’m so happy with the results.  I didn’t think I could love wall paper like I love this wall paper.  With the help of Jane and Kendall, I decided to change the chandelier in this room—good decision.  I’m downright giddy that we’ve got this room back together.  We just need the new electrical outlet we’ve been promised, so we can plug-in the lamps on the buffet—then we’ll be “done done” with this room.

Thanks for your indulgence.

The room looks divine! The wallpaper is awesome and the touch of blue in the china closet probably is a great subtle way of tying things together even more.
