I found this through Angie. Red has always been my favorite color. When I was younger, I was bolder, and had more of a Red personality...outgoing, a bit loud, adventurous with fashion and life. Now I'm more subdued, I keep my red personality more under wraps. But that does not mean you will not find red in my life! It is everywhere, so I figured I should participate in Rednesday from It's a Very Cherry World.

Last year we redid our dining room. It was lovely as it was, but was starting to get a bit shabby. After all, six children tend to bang, pick, dig, and peel. Not to mention the dog! Our last dog caused immeasurable damage to our property. He dug up the dining room floor, chewed at the woodwork that survived almost 200 years and made a general mess of things. Last summer we decided, when hubbins was laid off, to tackle that mess.

Here is a picture of one of four red doors in the newly renovated dining room.

You can see the floor is all torn up! The one strip of reddish flooring is what hubbins and the children put down. You can also see the red trim. We coordinated this trim to match the family room, where under the chair rail is also red. I will show you that next time :).
