The Dining Room Reveal

This is our former bedroom that we converted into our dining room... I painted this color on the walls and the border about 15 yrs ago. I still liked the color, just ready for a change...
Her is the new softer color...
The sunlight was flooding in, so I had to tone down the picture a bit...
My vintage Early American maple hutch...

  13. I love the new color, Robin - very relaxing. I'm going softer with some of the shades around my home, too. I think we're all trying to create havens of relaxation. ;)

    Thanks for linking to the party.
