Despite my vehement protests, my boyfriend listened to the painter and allowed him and his crew to match the dining room chair rail to the pumpkin/terra cotta walls. Why you would want to essentially disregard the existence of the chair rail was beyond me, I said. But hey, if you want to let a distinguishing feature blend into the woodwork, thatís your deal.

Sure enough, as soon as we see it for the first time, we agree it looks horrible. The chair rail looks like a keloid scar over which someone with a heavy hand applied cover-up to disguise it.
