Last week, I shared the before and after of my now dark green hutch. I thought I would give you a peek at the rest of the space!
As many of you know, we are in a very cozy home! Our dining area is our main area to eat in… At least you would think so. According to my kids, the living room, family room, and their bedrooms are great places to leave random cups, bowls, and plates, along with half-eaten food. Sometimes I wonder if I’m just crazy with the amount of yelling I do, or if it’s really not me who’s thinking outside of the box,of where food belongs.
To give you a small tour of how things currently look, the rug was a Craigslist buy. The MCM chairs are new, and you can see where I bought them in this post. I painted the artwork for our bedroom, but I liked it so much that it now lives down here. I’ll have to paint something else for our room.
The clock on the wall is a vintage on I picked up in an antique store. It doesn’t work, but looks so good, I’m okay with it only being correct twice a day.
I did a little vignette on the table with natural wood, a fern and marble. I am really into marble lately, and love how beautiful it is!
I really love the dining room with the dark green hutch painted. Now, I wish I’d done it sooner. It’s almost like having it painted black, the deep,rich green is a very grounding color.
I am still trying to decide what to do for the inside back, of the dark green hutch. I am mentally wrestling with paint over wallpaper. Someone brought up the point that once a patterned wall paper is up, whatever is displayed inside might get lost. I thought that was a great point.
