I love my new blue walls, especially with the crisp white trim! Even the old Ikea furniture doesn't bother me as much, not that I won't be getting rid of it. I chose a Benjamin Moore color called Yarmouth Blue. I have furniture back in place, but the only thing on the walls are my empty stamp shelves (we left the mounting up when we painted.) I may change them to black, but that is a quick trip to the Container Store. Next I have to decide upon a new desk and cabinet. Easier said than done - I have a hard time making decisions when I can't find exactly what I want.
An update to the dining room - I found a piece to serve as buffet and linen storage from Home Decorators. Dave assembled it tonight and it looks fantastic!
