With this post the cat's also out of the bag that we've painted the dining room the same navy blue as the living room. We are so happy with how this color looks in various lights. I'm just sad that it took us over five years to find this color. So many paint mishaps over the years led to this. I was hoping to do a big dramatic "before & after" with the old paint color and the new one, but it's taking me forever to get the whole room set up. We have a few other projects that are going on and I don't think they'll be done in the next two weekends, so the big reveal is going to have to wait.
Edited to add:
Someone asked me (offline) if the bar is for show or if we really drink that liquor. I know a lot of people who have had that one bottle of Kahlua in their cabinets for years after a random party they threw, so I understand the question, but nope - all of this liquor is consumable and will likely be replenished at some point in 2012. We drink more of it than others - Bulleit bourbon (and Bulleit Rye), St. George Single Malt Whiskey, Laphroig. Some of the bottles are novelty items in that they're only for specialty drinks, or were purchased on a whim, like Root and Ginger Snap, but we drink those too, I assure you. In fact, we've gone through both of those much more quickly than the other bottle I bought at the same time, Firelit Coffee Liquor (also from St. George). And everyone laughs at me when I tell them - completely straight-faced and in all seriousness - I love Jagermeister.
