I’m a fan of a red dining room sometimes. It can be classy and dramatic and good. But for some reason, I never felt that way about our red dining room. It was inherited red, and it doesn’t really go with our stuff that well. Plus, it was dirty. The more time I spend up close and personal with the walls, the more I see the dirt. Yuck.
This is what the room looked like this morning (after moving the furniture away from walls, so it didn’t always look like this):

What? It’s not done? Hmm. Yeah, I still have a lot of work to do. And I’ve heard nasty rumors that sometimes it takes more than 2 (or even 3) coats of light paint to cover red. Fingers crossed on that one.
Now it’s time to learn how to pour paint out of a 5-gallon bucket without spilling half of it.
