Eclectic Dining Room Makeover – Paint and Moodboard

We’re still slowly working away on Dylan’s bedroom but since he’s about a 1/2 hour drive away, I’m limited to working on it during the weekends. So throughout the week I’ve been turning my attention to our dining room. I have all of the big pieces that I need for the room including the hutch that I recently painted green, but there are a few little projects left before it’s finished. Here is a moodboard I created to give you an idea of what I’m going for. I recently developed an obsession for collecting blue and white pottery so I’m planning to display it throughout the room. I also picked up an antique door that I’m going to turn into a sliding door going into the laundry room.Eclectic Dining Room Makeover Moodboard

So because the dining room was painted olive green, I decided to repaint it white to let my colorful pieces of furniture stand out and it also really brightened up the space. Since there are hundreds of whites out there, I picked out a few paint chips from Behr’s collection and brought them home. I taped them to the wall I was going to paint and moved them around the room to see how they looked in different lighting. I decided to go with “Bit of Sugar” by Behr. It seemed to be the most neutral, some of the chips looked either too blue or too beige when I got them on the wall. The name is cute too!

I tested the color on the walls before I started painting and it took two coats to really cover the green underneath but I’m very happy with how it turned out!

I’ll be working on the sliding door next so I’ll keep you updated!

    I don’t like my space to look to busy classy but relaxed and homey!
