Here you see Missy perched on the couch, showing off the wall colors, and that fabric next to her is the fabric we are going to use to make curtains. Tiger and I are working on that next week, I think.
Here is our Queen Cat, the momma, sitting in the picture window that will be curtained with that striped fabric.
And, here are three more of those red doors (we have 5 in the dining room). You can see here that the dining room is adjacent to the family room. The dining room is gold, navy, and red. The family room has the red below the chair rail and the pink on top.
Soooo, why did that red paint drive my husband batty? Aside from needing a million coats, we had multiple catastrophes with that red paint. One gallon, nearly full, spilled across the dining room floor (thankfully before the old was pulled up and the new laid down). Another gallon was outside, too close to the hose when one of the children decided to clean brushes. So yep, that one got drowned. And of course, because we needed a million coats, we always underestimated the amount of paint to buy in that drumbeat red color.
With each trip to Home Depot to purchase yet another Drum Beat Red, my husband's blood pressure rose. It has, however, been a year. Do you think it is safe to tell him I'd like to put some more of that red into the kitchen now? Mind you, just as an accent color...
