The Kitchen Dinning Area

One project that I finally got around to working on was the dinning area.  I love the bay window in the dinning area which adds a few more feet to the kitchen and sure is nice to have that extra space to walk around the table. (picture from listing)

As you can see, the back wall is a dark chocolate color.  I liked it, but it was just a little too dark for the room, so I wanted to change it up a bit.  Also another thing that I didn't love were the aluminum mini blinds - the whole house has them, which will slowly get changed out.  So first came down the valances.

Then out came the blinds.

I removed the outlet covers, etc. and gave it two coats of paint - the same color as the rest of the kitchen.  I also added new caulk around the windows, which helped cover some of the remaining chocolate paint around the windows.

Just changing up the paint color brightened the room so much.  Then we added some white 2-inch blinds that I found on - Better Homes and Garden brand.  There were very inexpensive compared to the other home improvement stores and they are great quality.

Adding the new blinds and changing the paint color really brightens the dinning area now and I love it!
