Hi there all of you A' La Moders! I'm Michelle from Ten June. I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of mad at Shelli. She promised that she'd pack me in her suitcase when she headed to the beach this week. But, ahem, she didn't!! Only kidding, only kidding. I hope Shelli is off having a fabulous, well-deserved time and, meanwhile, I'm the lucky duck that gets to hang out with all of her readers!
I share Shelli's passion for all things interiors. In fact, my hubs and I have spent the last year (and probably a few more after this!) renovating our new-to-us-but-old-to-the-world 1952 ranch. One of my absolute favorite projects that we've done is the makeover of our dining room.
Here is a little story of our dining room's history.
a few months after we moved in:
(not sure what the speckled "antique" look on the beadboard was all about?!)
the "I'm nervous to paint navy so lets start with gray" look:
(we painted all of the beadboard/trim the same color white as our kitchen cabinets)
taking the plunge with navy:
The wall color is Behr's Starless Night and I loooove it!
and the completed look!
I also used a quatrefoil stencil to paint the back of my built-in wine rack.
I also just switched out the lighting with a new white pendant above the table.
So as you can see, we've done a lot of work to the room! The navy blue was certainly a risk, but oh how I love it! And I hope all of you like it too!
Thanks so much for having me, Shelli! You better bring me back a seashell or two! : )
WOW! Thanks Michelle! Um, can you please come to my house right now and make me a cool stenciled built in wine rack? I'll take one in every room! Oh wait, is that wrong? Okay, well maybe make me one of your AWESOME sunburst mirrors for my living room? K thanks! Ya'll Michelle is a super sweet funny chick with a great blog! If you don't already follow her, go check out Ten June!
