I painted the dining room … again

Hello friends! I am so excited for Thanksgiving. It’s such a blessed time of year, to be sure. We’re hosting at our house this year, which means my perfectionist tendencies have kicked into overdrive. I’m still a work in progress on that front, but sometimes I do succumb to the perfectionist voices in my head. #babysteps

I decided recently, after a dear friend of mine gifted me some beautiful pear art, that I needed to repaint my dining room … again. And it had to happen, like immediately, to accommodate said artwork. Yes, I can visualize you shaking your head just like my dear husband did. But … I do love the new color. It’s Sherwin Williams Keystone Gray, and it is absolutely one of my new favorite colors.

Here’s the space with two coats of Keystone Gray:

What do you think of the new color?

And going back through the history of our dining room colors … Here’s the dining room in Sherwin Williams Silvermist, also a lovely color.

And before that … Behr Cinnabark.

I love how a $30 gallon of paint can completely change the look of a space in a day, don’t you?

For trim painting and “cutting in” around ceilings and baseboards, I love the Purdy™ Clearcut 2″ brush:

And the 5-in-one painter’s tool:
