Bye Bye, Red!

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.
