For some reason, about once a year we all get in the mood to do some redecorating and painting. My major redecorating usually comes one room at a time, but we are putting in new flooring this year. Painting was just necessary but I had no desire to paint walls over new floors! So we are doing some long, overdue projects in our dining room. I don't have any pictures as yet to show you our progress, but I will try to add some in the next few days. But I just had to show you a tutorial that I found that will give you an idea of what I am doing in the dining room. I do not like dark wood finishes since they tend to makes things...well...dark!:-) So all of the trim in this room will be painted to look like barn wood. I also painted the walls two tones of gray, the top a light color called "Waterford" and a darker shade below the chair rail called, "Slate Roof". I found out (the hard way) one very important aspect of paint. MIX IT EVERY TIME YOU USE IT! It was one of those things that I know but not to the extent that I should have.:-\ I had to paint the lighter color twice. Anyway, check out the tutorial listed below and maybe you can find a good way to use the same technique. Blessings to all!!
