dining room re do

We do not have enough images of the amount of wallpaper I peeled! I let the chair rail live... though the living room chair rail did not meet such a pleasant end... but the wallpaper HAD TO GO!

We bought our dining room table and chairs for only $199 at a thrift shoppe near our birth center! Even on craigslist we couldn't find anything this low priced or with this much personality... (the end chairs have a little more personality than I prefer... chair slipcovers are officially added to the list of things to make!)

We started our painting... grey above and grey below... an Ani Difranco line comes to mind.. the sky is grey the sand is grey and the ocean is grey... not sure which is which but I'm happy thinking of any... the names of the paint we found were "intellectual grey" and "annonymous"
I HATE sherwin williams' paint names the same colors in behr were: "Elephant skin" and "toasted walnut"
Come on!

In all of these images you are supposed to not see the boxes in the bookshelf behind the couch... or the big piles of plastic drop cloths and cardboard from painting/moving... hopefully they will be out of our lives very soon! :)
