Picking a new paint color for the Dining Room.

John and I have been living with the red color in the Dining Room for over a month now and we really feel it need to go. We really miss our lovely blue color in the dining room in the old house. We think though in this house we are going with a similar blue color but we want to try something different. We are looking maybe at a Robin Egg Blue, something soothing and relaxing. The red is definitely not relaxing and it is making the room feel closed in. I also think our pictures would show up better on a lighter blue wall. I'll let everyone know what we decide! Everyone have a lovely Friday and a great weekend!

Hi Sherri, I had a red room that I loved but it was a room we didn't use everyday. It felt warm and cozy. My bedroom now is sort of a robin's egg and I like it too. Light and bright and cheerful. Have a great weekend.

I feel for you, it is really hard picking paint color. I truly hate doing it. Clarice

Those Weeping Willow photos took me back to my childhood home. Love those trees, but they had these green wormy looking bugs so we eventually cut it down :(


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
