When we did one of our first walk-thru's the dining room wall caught my eye. It was covered in bead board (which I love!!) but it was also bright red. It wasnt a bad color, it just wasnt "me." It also had a lot of dings and holes so it was in desperate need of a little TLC. It didnt take long for us to decide that the bead board needed to go back to its original color. White.
We arent sure if we are going to keep it white, but for now it works. It has brightened up the dining room considerably, which is always a good thing.
