I originally wanted khaki for the wall color; I've had black drapes in mind for over two years(yeah I've been planning for a while). We bought the drapes and sheers on clearance this past summer. I asked my husband for his thoughts on the wall color. He did not care for the khaki/ tan idea and neither did the Navy Girl. When you see the before color you will understand...she likes color.
Several years ago hubby and I picked up a certain creamer as an inspiration to the color we wanted in our dining room (yet to be remodeled); well he brought it in from the hutch and said you should paint it this color. I immediately loved the idea.
We took it to the store to match it, I choose something with a bit more blue than green in it and he picked the trim color to match. So with a gallon each of Georgetown Blue Ivy and Cream Ware we set to painting last night and finished this morning.
I am in love with this room!!
I already took a bit of time to stitch in there tonight. Just need to hang things on the walls and wait for the rug to arrive next week.
Finale pictures will be posted along with a peak in the cupboard.
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year; cheers to 2013!
Keep on Stitching!
