~Summer Project~

I am going to redecorate my dining room. That means everything gets a new look. Even ALL the furniture. I am going to decorate it with thrift store and antique finds. Maybe hit up a few garage sales. I'll make most of it myself. If  I buy anything new. It will probably be an area rug and curtains. Here is the kicker. I am decorating the room in a Fall/Halloween theme. Yes I said Fall and Halloween is our favorite time of the year. I'll share one of my colors with you today. I'll reveal the other colors as I go.
My first color is Canadian Black Raspberry.

My color sample in person is a lot darker. My picture doesn't do it much justice. I'm going to paint a trial piece this weekend to see if I want to paint anything else this color. If I like it. I'm going to paint my dining room table and chairs. The table legs will be the only thing painted. My table top is going to be stained a light oak. Then I'll have to find a fabric to coordinate with it to reupholster the seats on the chairs.

I know it doesnt seem very primitive but I think I can pull it off. Plus purple is my favorite color. This is going to be soooo much fun.
I would love to hear any suggestions you have.

Oh my HECK, Girl!! You ROCK!!! I LOVE Halloween and all the fall colors!! It's my favorite-est time of the year! I've always toyed with the idea of doing a year-round Halloween room (or more), but have always chickened out (I don't always get my seasonal decorations put away "timely" so my family/friends would probably just think I was "behind" again...) Oh - you go!!! Thanks for having the spunk I don't! Can't wait to see where you take this....Smiles & Hugs, Robin

Wow Patti, You got my brain to churning. You are a brave soul! Can't wait to see where you go with this. Please keep us posted with pictures. I am sure it will be lovely. I love decorating for this season, I even change the comforter on my bed to a halloween one. You go girl. Have fun in the process.

I bet it will look great! I love Halloween too, and fall, I guess if I spent my time more wisely, I would get more done! That would mean a break from here! I just don't know how some of the gals get it all done!
We all will look forward to seeing your progress.

I love Halloween and fall colors!
Not sure if I would decorate in those colors, but you never know.
I can't wait to see how yours turns out.
Sounds like fun.
