Or at least, farewell to the pink in the dining room. I finally picked a color and painted my dining room. My friend Natalie helped me out getting the first coat on, but I had to put the 2nd on by myself. The corners still need to be touched up a little, but otherwise its done.
I like how the colors turned out. The cream color is nothing special, but I love the chocolatey color on bottom. It looked like chocolate milk going on the walls. I was relieved to start painting to bottom and realize that I like it... I was terrified that I wouldn't since I skipped the samples this time around. I also straighted up and reorganized our bookshelf... its possible that some books that we've (ahem *Brian*) owned for at least 5 years and never touched did not make it back onto the shelf... we'll see if anyone noticed in the next year...
Oh, and by the way... I NEVER want to paint around crown molding and chair rails ever again! Even with an edger, what a slow, painfully annoying process!
