Dining Room Redo

When we first built our house in the early 90's, we painted our dining room red.  Over the last couple of years, I have wanted to update it and I finally decided on painting it yellow.  Here are some before pictures of the room when it was red...

Here it is with a yellow tinted primer on the walls...

And here it is, painted, but before the room was decorated.  The paint color is Weston Flax by Benjamin Moore.  The chandelier also got a coat of black paint and some new shades. 

And here are some more after pictures!  New curtains, freshly painted walls, and an updated chandelier make the space feel up-to-date and so much bigger!

Thanks for taking a look!  Linking up to the Sunday Showcase Party at Under the Table and Dreaming, Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch

  1. It looks beautiful! I have the same chandelier and I want to do mine that way too. It all looks great. Love the wall color, by the way. Love & blessings from NC!

  2. Beautiful! I remember when you guys had first built your house and how cool I thought a red dining room was! The new color is gorgeous!

  3. My summer house has quite a few rooms painted weston flax. It is a lovely color and the balck iron looks great! I am following your blog now too!

  4. Love the yellow and the drapes look fabulous too. So cheerful. Such a pretty room. Great job. Hugs, Marty

  6. How Wonderful! the yellow is so bright and cheery!

  7. Love that dining room. I just painted hubby's office/guest bedroom....from red to antique white. I know what you mean about needing a change, and the lighter look is definitely refreshing and enlarging! Linda

  8. Beautiful update! I love yellow too and have it throughout most of my home. So fresh and cheerful! Great job!

  9. Love the yellow its so clean and fresh lookin...what beautiful drapes you have in there...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  10. love your yellow room, looks so nice for summer, but the colors you have chosen will take you right into fall and winter too!
    amazing what a coat or coats of paint will do.
