Our kitchen dining space is one part of our great room, and it was a naked part. The white walls had been slowly driving me insane for the past six months. I knew I couldn’t do anything too devilish to them because they had to flow with the other parts of the open space (the neighboring marbled/grey granite kitchen and the soaring family room).
So what to do with boring white walls?
The dark grey color we picked turned out to be not quite right. So, in a fury, I painstakingly painted over the dark grey with a lighter, more silvery shade of grey.
After the color was corrected, it became abundantly clear that the dark table we had in the space was all wrong. A new rustic dining table with an “antique grey finish” was dropped in its place.
In all honesty, I’m still not feeling the dining table. I’m hunting for a funky, lighter-toned, round kitchen table that will better complement the chandelier.
But for now, this works!
