After the hours of work applying the horizontal stripes in my dining room, and living with those stripes for a year, they had to go. I never loved them and the room felt cold.
I spent the better part of today giving it an update.
I started by painting the ceiling. I measured 32” from the floor and painted the bottom wall white. I installed chair rail and painted the upper wall in BM asphalt. This is the same colour that is on my living room gallery wall. I’ve always liked it, so I figured go big :)
My fear was that it would look too dark, but I feel like it is just right for a dining room.
I’m now looking for two chairs to replace the white ones. I brought in my two antique chairs, but because the arms were high, they didn’t fit under the table. Easily solved by adding casters to the table legs.

Like any update, it’s never really done.
Maybe some picture frame moulding on the bottom? Some more art?Sharing at
