I spent the weekend painting the Dining Room. First the ceiling then the table. Although, as you can see, Jon helped with the table. He always wants to do a part of the painting, just not too much. But he did get a couple of the paper lights (one in the shape of a star the other a globe) from the Village Store in town to help brighten up the room.
The dining room table was a big, heavy, brown thing that takes up most of the room and sucked up what little light there was. Now it’s the pink of my favorite breakfast fish, Lox. And the watery turquoise (leaning towards sea green) ceiling reflects the light from the windows during the day and all the lights at night.
I know by tomorrow afternoon the table will be piled up again with all our stuff, but I’ll still be able to see those Salmon legs. The kid at the hardware store sold me a gallon of the Salmon colored paint. I should have known better, I didn’t use half of it. So now I’m looking around the house and thinking of what else I can paint pink.
I’m sure I’ll have some ideas by next weekend.
You can see a picture of the dining room, almost all done (the table’s still wet) on Jon’s blog.
