We Shall Dine In Yellow and Green and Black and White...An Update

I blinked and the weekend was over.  No plans, no where to be, just a weekend home with my family and working on my "new" dining room.

The room is certainly getting there, but the most time consuming piece thus far has been painting our table and chairs and constructing (and installing) the custom window treatment.

It's certainly not for everyone (Hubs is even still on the fence and he trusts my decorating, this isn't the first time I've done this ya know), but I am loving it.  I love bright and bold colors.  But this is by far the boldest I have been in my 33 years.  Hubs called it bold when he saw it for the first time and so I will continue to refer to it as such in honor of him. :)

I was so, so, so very tempted to take a vacation day today so that I could keep going, but I didn't.

The goal for this week is to get the second coat of poly on the top of the table, poly the rest of the table and paint and poly the chairs.  Between working, momming, wifing, working out, I think that is enough for 5 days.

I'm having the fam over for Good Friday, so the goal is to have it done by then.  Two weeks is plenty of time right?

Here's a sneaky peek:

And because, well why not.  She'll brighten anyone's Monday.

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

Looks great! We are in the midst of some big projects too.. I painted our bathroom vanity Saturday and planned on painting our front door yesterday.. but we were stricken with the Brown Bottle Flu... so, once again, project overflow into the week!

Love the black and white. Is that material or wallpaper. I just went to Table 3 in Maplewood on Saturday night and they had a wall like that. Loved it!

Can't wait to see the finished results.
