REPAINTING ROBIN'S DINING ROOM WALLS AN ELEGANT CHARTREUSE GREEN

REPAINTING ROBIN'S DINING ROOM WALLS AN ELEGANT CHARTREUSE GREEN

A few months ago, Robin asked me to paint her dining room an off white and brown.
I painted over a beautiful deep burgundy that I painted when she first bought her home.
The new off white walls with brown ceiling and brown below the chair rail looked so elegant and nice.  But,


the off white was just too boring for her taste.  She found some new fabric to recover her chairs and asked me to paint her walls this LOVELY chartreuse green.  It looks sooo good with the brown and  the metallic gold trim.  Years ago when I painted the burgundy, I painted the crown molding and baseboards a crackled metallic gold.  It looked really fancy and fine in her beautiful dining room.  Now, it still looks really good with her new chartreuse and brown.


  It's wonderful and happens to be in the tones of my very favorite colors.  
I love  chartreuse and yellow greens.


This is the elegant off white and there's Robin holding her little cat Mitzi.  Mitzi loves her mommy and one of her big sisters, but NOBODY else!!  


Earlier, I had embossed and painted some scrollies around the room.  To save time, Robin said she would paint around all the scrollies for me.  I gave her a tiny brush and she went to work.  She did a really good job, too!


This is her living room.  I textured and faux painted those walls.
Those walls are really high!


Isn't it beautiful!
I've worked for Robin for many years and love working with her.  She loves her home and is always finding ways for me to spruce it up for her.
Robin,
Thank you for letting me be a small part of your beautiful home.
