Around the House: The Dining Room is painted!

Theresa is mildly impressed Look, we painted the dining room! Theresa was giving me the side-eye every time I walked by her. She thinks indecision is a sign of weakness.

Haint Blue

I had often admired the lovely, traditional blue of Lowcountry porches, but never particularly expected there was a reason for it!
