Change is good, especially the SHINY kind


So, I was whining to my friend Donna (the nice one who gave me furniture) about how my gold chalkboard doesn't look good against my newly painted dining room walls.  Sure, I could move it, but I don't have another good spot for it and I really like it where it is (can you hear the whine) so I guess I have to paint it white, but I kind of don't want to because soon everything will be white.  Donna says, 'Why don't you paint it silver?'  That Donna is a GENIUS!



LOVE IT!  Here is the rest of the dining room mostly put back together:


I also painted my kitchen the same color, and I HATE how all my kitchen furniture looks with the paint.  Guess what's next on my project list?  Be careful what you paint.... it's a slippery slope.

Linking up to Show & Tell Friday.

I'm thinking of doing pale aqua in a couple of rooms too. I'm interested to know what it looks like in your kitchen.
Your dining room looks fab!

The frame looks perfect in silver...who would have thought?! I love it! And your dining room is gorgeous. The wall paint is just fantastic. I think it will look great in your kitchen! Can't wait to see!

Beautiful transformation!!! I started painting some of my gold frames white, then I realized that a little pop of the gold added some bling to the all white...I love it either way! Beautiful room!!!

The wall color is perfect. The mirror looks better in silver. Face it, you're never going to put down the paintbrush.
