So, we took the wallpaper and mirrors down and painted a deep red wine color ( Cottage Red from Benjamin Moore) It is very dark, but I do love it. We painted the trim and bottom half in Benjamin Moore's Linen White. We do all of the trim in the house this color. It is creamier than a bright white and I love the contrast. My husband is still going to add boxes with moulding below the chair rail. I want the finished room not to be very formal but more of a romantic cottage style. This might be a challenge with the color we chose. We still need to find some furniture for this room. A friend gave us the dining room table and chairs. They are in great shape, I just need to refinish the top and I want to paint the chairs. I was thinking about painting roses on the backs. That will be a project for the summer. We also need to find a hutch for the big wall and a sideboard. I will probably look for something that we can paint to match the table and chairs. And then the accessories! I have already picked up a mirror that I just loved! The curtains I reused from our previous home and the hardware is from the Simply Shabby line at Target. I will post more pics as we go! Let me know what you think so far!
