One of the things that I accomplished the weekend before last is that I painted our kitchen and dining room all white. One of the affects of my hallway makeover. My shoulder is killing me again but I'm glad I did it. It sounds boring but I love it.
In case you are new around here:
The walls were painted in the same white that I used for my cross decal hallway and closet makeover:
Valspar and it is eggshell Ultra White (7006-24) which goes perfectly with my white kitchen.
I found the glass and brass dining room at an auction 15 years ago for $25 and still love it.
And the dining room chandelier is a replica of the popular Cellular Chandelier that I bought in Germany for 80 Euros. Such a steal!
And all that makes me (of course) want to change other things. I'm thinking about tiling my backsplash now after all. And I would like to add some colorful artwork in the dining room. For now I hung my painting that I made (click HERE) for the living room in the dining room but the scale is all wrong. The colors are perfect though.
I see another artwork project coming up. Ha!
I am heartbroken because I broke the horse that you see on the kitchen counter while cleaning it. Some pieces are crushed and I won't be able to fix it entirely. I'm not ready to give up yet though.
Oh and I also moved my money tree into the dining room but I'm not sure it's doing that great:
And just so you can see the before with the dark walls again. I hung the other painting into the upstairs hallway but I might even change it back. Not sure yet.
I know that a lot of you loved the dark walls, I on the other hand was ready for a change. And even though they don't look that dark in the photo, they were a lot darker in reality. The new white walls make everything appear so bright and all the colors more vibrant which I love. I'm planning on adding more color as well and can't wait.
And they are so sharp that they double function as weapons for unwanted visitors. JK ;)
My next upcoming project will be my chaise in our bedroom. I'm teaming up with Onlinefabrics.net who is giving me the microfiber to redo the chaise. There is no turning back now. I'm feeling the pressure and have weak knees ;) This means I will be stuck in the bedroom for the next couple of days/weeks to attempt this upholstery job. The disassembly will probably take me a huge amount in itself.
One last thing my friends. I had some issues with my last pet series post going out correctly and if you did miss it, then don't forget to click over (click HERE) to meet adorable, fluffy Perny and Gabbi from "Retro Ranch Reno".
So stinkin cute!

That's it for today and on Wednesday I will share some other pretty things with you that I got for my birthday from one of my favorite companies.
