Dining Room Make Over

We moved here just over two years ago.  Two years of contractor cream.  Can you get more boring than cream with white woodwork and doors?  No, you can't. I've known since well before we moved in that I wanted my dining room done in Tobacco Road.  I first read about Tobacco Road on Nesting Place .  She's awesome, I've been a reader since waaaaay before she got all fancy with her blog and she was still on Blogger. Tobacco Road is a discontinued Duron color.  Sherwin Williams can recreate it, but at $45 a gallon?   Thanks....but no thanks.  I searched and search the net and found a Behr color code, sent hubs to Home Depot, and crossed my fingers. Oh. Em. Gee.  It is GORGEOUS!  I was scared the Behr knock off wouldn't have that color changing effect like the Duron/SW does.  It looks different in sunlight, overhead lighting, and at different times of the day.  Gorgeous! This is right when you walk in the front door.  The dining room is on the left with the entry
