And this is where we stand with the dining room now!
The floors have been stained ebony. My Aunt Karen came down from Kentucky for a weekend and painted the walls Benjamin Moore Grey Owl for us. I'm so pleased with the high contrast between the dark floors and light grey walls. The ceilings and new baseboards have a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore Decorator's White.
This room is full of hand-me-down furniture, with a little bit of Ikea and West Elm clearance mixed in. I think that once I have white slipcovers made for the chair forms they'll be fantastic!
Don't you love Ikea? My favorite Ikea item that I've bought for the house so far is this white metal shade fixture that replaced the brass chandelier. What's your favorite Ikea purchase?
