Well the process has begun. The primer and paint have been purchased; the room has been cleared; the breakfront was unloaded; the cobwebs were wiped away, and now the only think left is to wash down the walls and do whatever patching needs to be done!
Can you tell I am both excited and nervous at the same time. We have had this red dining room since March of 2003...almost 11 years, and now I am doing something so completely different it makes me a wee bit scared! No correct that...a lot bit scared!!!
So far so good with Mr. Rosemary Lane...he hasn't really complained at all about loosing the red room that he loves so much. I think he may be ready for a change as well in this room.
Although the red was nice for the holidays!
Gosh can you believe that all came out of my hutch and breakfront? Geeze oh man I have a lot of weeding through to do before I load that puppy up again!
So the commitment has been made and now it is time to follow it through! I have a gallon of primer and a gallon of color...both from Benjamin Moore. I am hoping this will be enough to cover over the red. Still undecided about what I am doing below the chair rail...to keep it Boothbay or to go with the Bone color I plan to use on the trim.
I suppose I will have a better idea of which way to go once I start rolling on the new color. As for right now I am going to wash down the walls and then I plan to grab a little lunch!
Ciao 4 Now!!!
