I’d been planning to re-paint my bright orange dining room for a while and finding myself with a weekend free I ran over to Home Depot and picked up paint. I went with Behr’s Stealth Jet, which I keep describing as almost not black, but really…I just painted my dining room black :)
[ Before – bright bright bright orange ]
[ After – black on black ]
I wanted it dark, but not angsty teenage bedroom dark, so I decided to class it up a little. I painted the walls flat black then added high gloss stripes in the same color. It turned out exactly the way I pictured and I love how it makes my furniture and chandelier pop. I’ve used Behr in every room in my house – their primer + paint is top notch. It only took two coats to cover the orange.
I’m not quite finished yet – still planning to replace my mid-century table with a dark stained farm table and adding a mix of mismatched chairs. Then either the current light or a more elaborate version will be painted lime green!
