Ten years ago I never would have believed it if someone told me I would be painting our dining room black, but black it is and we both love it.
I'm anxious to bring in a bit of coral or fuscia to the table
Since I took that first picture I have replaced the large mirror above the buffet with a round one. I like how the curves soften all of those rectangular pieces.
I am planning on taking this piece to The Traveling Door Market next week but I do like how it looks against the black.
I could always paint something else to go here.
I was also pretty proud of how well this floral canvas looked against the black.
It works as a way to pull in the corals from the sun room and the coppery golds from the living room that bookend our dining area.
When the contractors are working on the upstairs this summer I will have them add a chair rail here and a molding on the ceiling to further highlight the chandelier.
Then I think I will be able to call this room done. Is there such a word?
