In With The New.....
The color I chose is BM Shaker Beige....a very nice neutral color which goes with everything. It actually looks like the color of burlap. Let me know what you think! It's a little darker than I wanted but looks gorgeous when the sun is shining in the room. Actually, since the room does get minimal sunlight everything looks dark so I just need to accept that.
I know, you must be tired of this china closet by now but I wanted to show off the new wall color.
This is a better idea of what the new color looks like. Since there is much more wall space in the dining room I'm able to take better pictures. No, the wainscot is not done yet. Mike's been in India on business so he'll finish it up when he gets home.
So, where did I move the smaller hutch that was originally in the living room.....The Office! Love it in this room but obviously the wall color needs to be changed. The wood tone clashes with the walls. Since I am going for a lighter look in my home these days, it's time to change the color anyway.
For obvious reasons I moved this piece into the office. Couldn't really look at circa "1960's dorm room" any longer. The office is the one room in the house that is still filled with furniture from here, there and everywhere. I think that I'll look for a small farm table this summer to turn it into a nicer desk. You can see the corner of the desk in the second picture....yes, "circa 1970's formica"....UGLY!
So, I think this is enough moving furniture around for awhile. I can't wait for the big reveal of the dining room which should be within the next few weeks.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
