Hello everyone and Happy Friday!! I am starting to get that refreshed New Year feeling at last, and I think the bright pop of color I added to my dining room has helped. I have been looking for an affordable piece of art for my dining room for “ages,” as my daughter would say. I just can’t find the right piece for my space at the right price. So, in the meantime, I have had this room decorative room screen/divider that was taking up space in my garage. It was inherited from my husband’s grandmother and was a really solid and sturdy piece.
I also really liked that it had beautiful decorative scroll work on it. I thought if I painted it the right color, it would make do as artwork until I found the right piece of art. My dining room has really muted tones and lacks color. I have a beautiful black and white photograph framed and I thought a pop of chartreuse would pair nicely with it. I chose the color Citronette from the Home Decorator’s Collection at the Home Depot. This photo actually makes it look more mustard yellow than it actually is in person. Paint is madening that way!!
Please try to ignore the dust all over my buffet! I have not started my new year’s cleaning yet 🙂
You can see the decorative scroll work in this close up photo.
In this photo, you can see how it pops against the black and white framed photo on the other wall.
What do you think? Do you like the jolt of color or is it way to much for you? The good news is that when I tire of it, I will hopefully have found a new the perfect piece of art to replace it with. Have a wonderful weekend friends!!
