This past weekend my Mother in Law came to paint (and for Littley's baptism). This was our dining room before any projects: (ew.)
Then Mr. Incredible put up (with the assistance of my brother) crown moulding: (isn't he incredible?)
Then he put up shadow boxes (appliques?) and my MIL painted the whole room. ! Hurrah!
The color doesn't look like the above though. It looks too blue in the picture. The picture below was the inspiration, and this is what are walls truly look like:
the color we chose is called Gypsy Teal, and the crown moulding and chair rail and below is called Churchill Hotel Lace. (such pretty names, huh?)
Now I just need to hang pictures, curtains, get a rug, new light (did I really say 'just?'). Stay tuned.
