If anyone else tells me they love the paint colors, I’ll scream. They’re changing — especially the teal and red walls. I like teal as much as the next person, but it clashes with the original stone-blue fireplace. And red? It doesn’t work with my decor. So there. :-)
Everyone who knows me asks if I’m going to paint those built-ins white. As much as it kills me, the answer is no. For now. I’m not in love with the orange wood stain. (Yes, it’s as orange in person as it is in these photos.) But I’m going to give natural wood a chance.
This photo is the dining room. That bumped-out portion of the wall? The previous owners’ did it to fit the refrigerator on the other side. Stupid move, if you ask me. I’m going to fix that.
