I know, I know. I am being too slow with the house re-do pictures.
But I am getting there, I promise!
Here are a few sunny shots of the dining room post-painting.
Isn't it so light and airy? I love the color combos even if it does feel strange and odd to have the room this way. I am trying out the colors for the Farmhouse and at the same time freshening this house up for potential buyers.
The top of the wall is Panda White from Sherman Williams (as is the trim, but in high gloss.)
The bottom of the wall is Opera Glass, also by SW.
The curtains are a red buffalo check from Wal-Mart's fabric section and all I did was cut and clip ( my favorite way to make curtains!) The chandelier is a second hand donation from a friend and I spray painted it with a green from Lowes. Now we just have to get it hung...
The very day I was painting the dining room I had to make a quick run to Target for some supplies and while I was there I cruised through the magazine aisle (always on the hunt for something new and pretty) when a new title caught my eye. And then I noticed the room on said magazines cover.
And then I started laughing so hard I almost cried and I am pretty sure I absolutely freaked out the sweet older couple standing next to me. But I couldn't help it.
I was standing in Target and there was my house. On the cover of a magazine.
Only my house doesn't look like that anymore. Oh the irony!
You might remember when last Spring my our house was featured in Cottage Style magazine?
Well, the same publishes have come up with a new publication called Vintage Style and they chose (unbeknownst to me) some of the pictures from that photo shoot for their premier issue.
What is so funny is that I had NO IDEA. Seriously. None. The photo's belong to the photographer/publisher so they can use them for all time without me ever knowing ahead of time.
So there you go. I'm (okay my house is) finally a cover-girl! Isn't that the craziest story ever?
