I am having some issues with my house. My dining room is red. I love it. Probably will never paint it. The reason for this is that it is a color that my husband would have never let me paint, but it was painted that color when we moved here. It is the only room in the house that I have never thought about painting. Well, I actually thought about black one time, but my husband would die.
It is a very large dining room. It is so large that we have a table, five chairs, a buffet, a couch (yes, a couch), two small tables, and it still looks empty. Get my drift? Big. There is only one decorative display in there, and even that I am not thrilled with. I need artwork, decoration, window mistreatments (HELP NESTER!!!) or new curtains. Here are my thoughts. I would love the furniture to be black. This would mean that the table and chairs, buffet, dresser that will be repurposed as a second server/buffet would all have to be painted. Keep in mind, I am really good at starting projects without finishing them. Here are some pics. Let me know what you think and any suggestions you may have. Also, another thing I need assistance with is how to paint the hardware on the pieces of furniture that would be painted black.
This is the drapery fabric I am considering.
This painting towards the top is similar to one I want to do for the room.
This is the current window mal-treatment. This is worse than just mistreatment. The wood cornices were already in place.
This is the one place that actually has some decorative pieces, but I am still not crazy about this. I am totally open to changes.
This is the wall that holds the repurposed dresser (makeover to come). Notice the lack of artwork above. I am really thinking shelves holding decorative plates, whitewear,etc. However, I am not sure whether to do that if I paint the furniture black.
Please help me with this room!! It is basically a blank canvas, well, a red canvas. I can always post more pics if necessary because there are glass french doors, the double window with the couch in front, an entry way to the kitchen, an entryway to the hallway......
