If you follow my on Instagram you probably saw some pictures of the dining room go by. I painted the dining room with every last drop of one quart of Martha Steward Mourning Dove which is a very taupe-ish green color.
It looks great in the room. It isn’t too green or too tan. It’s one of my new favorite colors though online it looks like a standard Beige.
I also used Glidden Paint for the first time and I must say it is quite nice. You still need 2 coats (people say better paint only needs one coat but I’ve never found it to be true). The real benefit is in the cutting in. With a brush you really only need one coat whereas with the Behr paint, you really have to go over your cut-ins twice to get rid of the brush-marks. I’m a convert to the Glidden camp.
The color really is lovely with the chestnut tone of the paneling. I’m really excited about seeing these rooms come together so quickly!
