Since we have moved to the Atlanta area, wow... speaking of, can you believe that we have been here right at six months already?!?!?!  Anyway I digress.... since we moved to the Atlanta area into this rental house, I have been taking on a lot of "fix it up" projects thus I thought I might share a few....  Today's show and tell....  The Dining Room.

When we first moved here the dining room was Red and Gold.... no I am NOT joking... the top part of the wall above the chair rail was painted a reddish color and the bottom was a gold sponge texture something or another.....

Well here - see for yourself.... (this is a photo of the house when the owners lived here).... you can click on the photo for a larger view if you would like!!! (Or not!! Bahahaha!!)

And then here are a couple of photos I took before starting the remodel!!


My designing style tends to be very traditional, with a little of country/rustic thrown in (it seems to be a little more and more getting thrown in the older I get... rustic/getting old, hm maybe there is something there!!! Bahahaha!!)  Anyway needless to say this red and gold wasn't cutting it!!!  I also tend to go with very neutral wall colors and then add color with my decor.  So after several days and several coats of paint,  here is the new and I personally think 'improved" dinning room!

Wow.... big difference huh?!?!? 

Well I hope you enjoyed this little show and tell... I have three more huge make overs to share in the next few days (The living room, the office, and my studio) along with a re-purpose project to show you as well!!!

Hope you have a GREAT Thursday - oh and make sure you visit tomorrow... I have an announcement (one that will save you money, hint hint) to share....

Until Next Time!

The dining room looks great! The softer color makes the room look much bigger.

I prefer your colors, although I am trying to become a bit bolder in my choices. When I quilted, I over-matched colors. :)
Great job- everything looks wonderful. Can't wait to see the other projects.
