Dining Room Painted

Last weekend I painted the den walls, the panel wainscoting in the dining room, the den ceiling and finally the dining room walls. It was a long arduous weekend but I had to act on the motivation the newly refinished floors gave me.

Here's the dining room so far:



The color is called "Tankard" and is more of a brownish-gray, in case it appears different on your monitor. It's a Miller Paint color, but I had them mix it in Benjamin Moore. I selected the color on a whim, and I'm surprised how much I like it.

Wow.....gutsy choice but I love it. It's crisp and shows off that "to die for" tile and stove. The ceiling stands out against the wall color also. Perfect.....great job.

Dulcie-
Thank you very much for the compliment.

Jan-
The crisp look was what I was striving and after going back and forth on color mixtures and many paint swatches, I just picked one that I hadn't considered, and just got a gallon.
The ceiling standing out was completely unexpected so I was stoked when I saw that too.

Joe - the paint looks great!! have you picked a light fixture yet? I think you should do a wrought iron hanging light.

Ted you're right....wrought iron would be perfect. It would really set off the stove. I loooove that stove.

I think dynochick is the smartest dynochick i've ever known.

quick question.... is that ceiling covered with anaglypta wallpaper or is that the vinyl tiles that you glue up?
