We’re in love with Behr’s bermudan sea:
Our formal dining room started out here:
Then she became a storage room while we were setting up the bedrooms and renovating the bathroom.
Lovely brass chandelier and some awesome floral wall paper to compliment. First things first, I spray painted the chandelier. And pulled out the steamer apparently 😉
Several weeknights and weekends full of steaming, scraping, and elbow grease we are getting somewhere.
And a fun discovery along the way:
To say this experience was frustrating would be an understatement. For a full month we hung a tarp up and just ignored this room because we were SO OVER the wallpaper removal process. But we got back to work and things look great.
It is VERY blue, but we really love it. Especially since everything else in the house is subtle, this pop of color really makes a nice dramatic effect.
Eventually we want to replace the chair rail with something a bit more substantial. And we need to find some furniture for this room. But all in all, it is looking better, which is a good thing because we see this room a lot more often now.
Want to know why? Stay tuned… 🙂
