Why do I fall in love so easy? I'm talking about with decorating? Is it my calling? Or is it because it's just plain fun...and I like CHANGE!
My sister's and I think it's because we were raised in the military and we moved around A LOT! I went to 14 different schools before I was in the 9th grade!
Back to my dining room. I am in love with the new Gray color. It's a custom mix by Sherwin Williams. They call it Mushroom. This Gray looks different at different times of the day and eve. I got this from another blogger that said it was the perfect gray. I agree with her but I don't remember who it was.
After painting, I realized that I would have to change the rug from this red rooster rug...
To this Oriental rug that I found on Overstocks.com
I also changed out the chain sock and the shades on my chandelier from this...
I will show you how I did these monogram shades in another post very soon.
So made these valances.
And the picture/art above used to look like this...

Before the buffet, the furniture on this side of the room looked like this...
That hutch looked like this when I found it and I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Things just keep changing!
