PAINTING A DINING ROOM NAVY

Apartments. Paint. Sometimes they don’t go hand in hand. After filling out some tedious paperwork, we got the go ahead from our landlord. Keeping in mind we have to change everything back when we move out. Worth it. But, I want to paint sparingly, in the smallest ways that will have the most dramatic effect.

Our dining room AND kitchen got the treatment. (At least part of them, only 3 walls in total). And what color? I instagram-ed some considerations.

We picked a lovely navy blue with a hint of dusty gray-ness. I swoon. It’s Sherwin Williams’ Sea Serpent. (If David was at all on the fence about the color – he definitely got off the fence upon hearing it’s rad name.)

It felt like the painting went fast. Maybe because it was only three walls? Dave made this nifty paint holder from a milk carton for me. Genius!

I basically only ever use flat finish, but for this I went with eggshell (which feels really high-gloss to me.)
