A couple of months ago, I decided I was tired of my dining room being painted all red, above and below the chair rail. The room isn’t overly large, so all that red made the room feel even smaller. This is the only pic I have to show you of how it looked when it was painted all red. I had just decorated the room for a birthday party I was having for a good friend.
This was pretty painful to look at every day until I finally got a few days off from work and could start caulking all this new molding. (The red is actually a deeper red and not as bright as this picture indicates.)
I have to admit, I was getting pretty excited by this point…definitely liking the change. I was also a bit horrified that the primer wasn’t covering any better than it was….ugh…I foresaw another coat of primer before I could even start with the white paint.
The sideboard is still pulled out from the wall in this pic. Note the high-tech furniture moving equipment…dish towels under each leg. Hey, it works. Yep…definitely liking the white below the chair rail…what do you think?
I can’t imagine this tablescape with an all red wall behind it. I think the additional molding and white paint were a good change…but what do you think? Was it worth all the work? Please say yes, or I might have to cry.
