This Weekend We:
-painted the accent wall in the dining room, officially wrapping up the current painting goals
-pulled up the carpet in the porch to see what it was hiding. Answer? Surprisingly non-water damaged plywood
-started attaching the new trim/weatherproofing stuff to the bottom of the garage door
-reorganized all the supplies for projects and for the wedding into Bedroom #2, freeing up Bedroom #3 as a guest bedroom
-tested our water in preparation for buying a new water softener
|The first of many layers to be peeled off our porch|
And here's the real color:
So here's the new view looking into the living room:
I am IN LOVE with this color! Deep Ocean by Benjamin Moore. I love love love how it looks with the dark stained trim!
Here's the view from other direction from the same opening:
The moonshine paint is a little stark right now, but I wanted a neutral color to balance the accent wall plus there will eventually be open shelving displaying colorful dishes and potentially the new cabinets will be painted a color. So in the big picture the moonshine color will make sense.
Also there will eventually be built-in shelving/cabinetry on the accent wall so it won't always be seen in its full glory which makes me happy and sad.
