Over the course of the past year I've slowly been making a few changes in my home. They've come slow and easy with a great deal of thought behind each of those changes. The dining room for many of us is a pass through room, a holding room of things destined for another space in our home. Most times dining rooms are used twice a year. Mine was no exception. A few years back I told my friend Gloria from Happy To Be some day I'm going to turn my dining room into a reading room. She said, "go for it girl!" Little did I know that day would come sooner than I thought.
was the fan with the over sized light and shades. I wanted a chandelier of some sort. The fan and light was just too heavy for the room. The next thing to go was the dining room table and chairs. The fabric backed chairs with leather seats hadn't been sat in more than a handful of times. I then emptied the room and painted. Oh my the dark faux painted walls were way past it's prime. I needed to modernize this space in the worst way.
I purchased the chandy from Over Stock, trust me when I say it took me quite a while to put all the prisms and crystals on this baby. So worth it.. Notice those lighter walls? The color is Mindful Gray by SW. After I started I thought oh my goodness this has too much blue in it for me. After living with the shock of going from the darker faux painted walls to this soft gray the choice was spot on.
