Our Dining Room Reveal:)

Finally it has slowed down enough to get the before and after pictures of our painting project!!! We are soo pleased with the changes... but let me again warn you... I am a very SIMPLE and SLOW decorator.... it takes me a LONG time to decide what I like and if it really coordinates:)
So here it is... the BIG reveal:)

The three "paintings" were drawn by a friend to match my dishes... LOL! And then the kids and I painted them:) We really didn't have anything else to pull colors from.... so now we have our "color palate"!


There are still some things we'd love to do to the room.... curtains!!! More wall decor!! Maybe down the road (or a good sale) different light fixture!!! Oh, the list goes on and on:)


The biggest change was the wall color... obviously:) But the other BIG change is that all the homeschooling materials have been moved out of the dining room. We thought that it was looking too cluttered and that the kids (and I) would need more space this next school year.....


So that brings me to the next BIG project :) This week we have been moving and sorting Brian's home office... we are turning it into our homeschool room!!!! It will be a long project as we figure how best to organize and store everything for daily use!!

Your dining room turned out great! It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do to a room.

Good luck with putting together your new homeschooling room!

I have an award for you on my blog:

It looks great Kelly! You really did a good job. I think sometimes canging the color of the walls make a room looking much more different than before. And don't be afraid decorating, I am not the decorating queen myself. But I know that it grows step by step, just be aware that it does not get too much...;-)
