(Thanks, Melissa! for hosting the Procrastinator's Party and making me do something about that awful room!)
Remember this? ..................
(For more "before" photos of this room, go here.)
Well, TA - DA...............
The Valspar High-Hiding primer (in white) COMPLETELY covered up the red without a problem.
I used Jekyll Clubhouse Yellow by Valspar to lighten up the dark, north-facing room. (1 coat of primer and 2 coats of yellow).
(Valspar is at Lowe's -if you are wondering.)
The curtains may change - I am not "thrilled" with them. Loved this material, but am not so sure about it -now that it is hanging from the curtain rod!
And obviously the chair skirts will have to wait until I have stopped procrastinating on THEM. (another party, anyone??)
But overall - We are pleased as punch with our "new" dining room!
(and NOW I can leave that door open!!)
Total cost -less than $300 plus LOTS of elbow grease.
Paint: $120 (with 11.5 foot ceilings, the walls need alot of paint!)
Fabric, curtain rod: $110
Accessories: $60 (new lampshade, plants, mercury glass (over on the LARGE buffet), and moss (center of table with the silver))
I already had all of the furniture, the rug, and the remaining accessories and pictures -it just wasn't noticeable due to the huge mess!!
Just posted this AGAIN at The Nesting Place best of 2009 Linky Party!
