Changing the dining room
In my decluttering quest...I was distracted. I was putting away the paint that I had in the dining room for touch-ups I had been working on….when I decided that I should paint the patio door.
Here is my before:
I want to say that I painted the patio door black….maybe a year ago??? I can’t really remember….and I really like it….. it just seems to darken the room. I fight against a contrast of too dark and super glare-y all the time so I am trying a new color to see if if helps with the too dark half of my problem.
To combat the glare – Dave pitched in by hanging a curtain rod for me and making sure it was properly anchored.
Ikea: Kvartal single track
Ikea: Kvartal ceiling fixture
Paint: I used Valspar Ultra as my paint of choice (matches all my trim). I prepped the surface and went to town.
And from the kitchen:
As distractions go….It was a pretty good one. I am super pleased with how it turned out. I will need to work on how the curtains hang and how to drape around our water dispenser but even with those things on my list…I like it.
