Over the weekend, with the help of my fabulous in-laws (who now live a mere 11 minutes away--happy dance!), our dining room began looking decidedly less like theirs (previous owners) and more like ours:
In the interest of ensuring that none of that red seeped through and ruined our hard work, we decided to first put on a coat of Olympic no-VOC tinted primer, which made the room look completely different all by itself:
The paint is also Olympic no-VOC in eggshell, and we had it color matched to the Behr chip you saw above. No-VOC (aka no-stink, no-headaches, no-feeling as though you're inhaling something that is killing your brain cells) was absolutely the way to go for us, especially since we couldn't open the windows given that is was approximately 8 degrees outside.
