And then I had a very helpful conversation with Debora, where she sent me this picture of her chair painted ASCP Olive (with Primer Red accents, for the record).
This looked much better there than on the paint chip or even the sample on the wall at the stockist (although I love it with the peacock-y Aubusson Blue).
Debora reminded me that chalk painting is a heckofalot easier than traditional sand/prime/latex painting. So I bought a can of Olive and got to work. Bowen (age 4) was so tickled to watch me paint. He kept saying things like, "Mom, you're so GOOD at this!" It was the encouragement I needed; bless him.

We actually eat dinner in this room every night, which makes me happy since I didn't want to have a room that was only used a few times a year. I also wanted comfortable seating at the table, so these seats have new 3" foam pieces wrapped in batting and covered faux leather (read: wipeable).
