I have FINALLY put pictures up on my wall's. What?! It has only been 8 month's.
My reason for not decorating the dining/kitchen area wall's is that I hated the greeny /brown color that took over the ENTIRE house. I felt like I was inside of a diaper, seriously.
So we painted the wall's a nice slate gray and it lightens up everything so much and is so pretty with the white trim's. I went painting crazy on all the vintage frame's I have been collecting for a while. Painted them all white. There was a set of gold ones that I did have the heart to paint as they looked so good with the gold detail's over my fireplace in the master bedroom. I picked out pictures that had meaning, ones that I have held onto for year's looking for a special place, it look's good, but it is quite overwhelming. I am used to bare wall's and minimal that I feel a bit clausterphobic?!
Well it took me all Saturday and I am very pleased with how it turned out. The kid's love walking up the stares and looking at everything on the "picture" wall.

|I put all my Paris things and Eiffel Towers in on spot as a nice collection area, like I did with the milk glass|
