When we first moved into our house I splashed paint on the walls of every room. I love earth tones & rich colors and wanted our home to reflect that. The color in the dinning room was neutral but I wanted something different. I wanted the dinning room to be a deep blue color with eventually moldings lining beneath the chair rail. (Still waiting on that molding but hopefully soon now that Hubby has finally finished school, it won’t be too long, one can hope! ) I had painted it a blue color but it was not deep enough to balance out all that white.
So I got daring and painted the walls Annapolis Blue. It went on really dark and I got scared but when It dried it was perfection in my mind at least.
Ignore the picture frames with no pictures please, as well as the toddler who tries to get in every picture and usually succeeds. I was especially excited at how good it went with our new rug.
I had wished I had taken more before pictures especially of the table which was a walnut color before I turned it all white. I recovered the chairs too, which is such a cheap, easy fix but looks so good.

I also made a window treatment for the back door that matched the chairs. It is simple construction that has Velcro tabs for during the day, and unrolls at night.
The table runner I finally finished and will post pics soon. It is amazing what the right shade can do for the room I am glad I took the plunge into the dark
