I’ve written about the walls in my dining room a few times and my stripe design.
While measuring out my stripes, the paint peeled up in one spot.
It’s small, but I don’t dare put up painter’s tape since it will likely peel more paint off. And though I swore I would run to the hardware store and buy beadboard because hell was going to freeze over before I scraped the walls down again, I have yet to visit Loews.
After living with the dining room walls white below the chair rail for 3 weeks, I know now that I do not want them to remain white. I love color. I need color.
So, we are on to plan B which involves more paint. Surely, more paint will solve my problem.
I’m thinking a base coat of yellow and an allover stencil of orange on top. The stencil will look similar to the scrolls on the fabric I am using.
Or should I go with a base coat of orange with black scrolls on top? Since the kitchen is next to the dining room, maybe I should incorporate turquoise into the colors.
Yellow and turquoise?
Whatever colors chosen, I’m going to have a colorful house by the time I’m done. Oh yeah!
