If you’re standing at the front door, the dining room is to the far left corner of the house, accessible through either the kitchen or living room. When I first bought it, the previous homeowner was using it as her bedroom. It also had a low ceiling fan, dingy ceilings, and heavy curtains that shut out the light.
Then, I chose a bold color for the walls. The room was turning back into a sophisticated space for entertaining!
And after a new light fixture and decor, here’s where we are now!
I didn’t just dip a toe into the water with this color – I went for impact with a vibrant blue dining room! And even though I was nervous about how it would come together, the room is finally taking shape. There’s still more to add, like window treatments, more art, crown molding, and a bar area for entertaining, but check out the projects below to get the details on the paint, makeover process, and more for what’s happened so far, get tips, etc.
