Covering my walls with raccoon…

No, not this little critter…
Raccoon Fur by Benjamin Moore
I I am excited to get this room done! Honestly, it has been a forgotten
space since we moved in. It is one of the first rooms you see
when you walk through the front doors…so it should kick some serious
butt. Initially I was going to have our dining room chairs recovered, but the cost was just not something I was comfortable with. So my next option was simple, find a fabric that went well with the chairs and then a color to bring it all together.
The Raccoon Fur is just the color, it is almost black with hints of blue. It will allow the built-in hutch & killer Arteriors antique brass chandy to pop. And since I am the way I am, a procrastinator that wants everything NOW, I ordered drapery from Restoration Hardware. They had a color in the Thai Silk drapery line that was perfection with the chair fabric. Decided to go with French Pleat top panels, antique brass rods (2 shorties rather than one long one), and a length that will leave a puddle on the floor. Now I just need to sit here and wait, wait for the painter to show up on Friday and wait for the drapes to arrive at my door. Mel xo
