DECOR: DINING ROOM REVAMP

Rearranging furniture has been a hobby of mine since I was a little girl.  I blame my Grandma for teaching me by example.  I've carried this habit/hobby with me into adulthood and even though we live in a tiny apartment in Orange County, the urge to redecorate still creeps up on me every now and then.  And working from home the majority of time doesn't help the frequency at which these urges occur.  Because of space constraints and the shape of the rooms in our apartment, it makes it difficult to rearrange furniture.  But certainly not accessories and wall decor.

Last week I had the sudden urge to paint a wall in the dining room.  This has happened a few times before, resulting in a large accent wall in our living room/office (which looks drastically different now, especially because we have new flooring), followed by an orange accent wall in our kitchen, an accent wall in our bedroom and eventually painting all the remaining walls in our bedroom.  J was VERY hesitant to paint yet another wall and made me promise we wouldn't end up painting the entire space gray, but there's still one more small wall I have my eye on.  I call it my parallel walls design theory.  Perhaps we'll all get to see it one day (:
 

Hey everyone, Jeff here.  She's right, I did not want to paint the wall.  Again.  Because I know one wall isn't just one wall.  It's one wall and wall decor.  That aside, (unfortunately) I have to say that it looks a lot better than what we started with.  We weren't planning on changing the photos on the wall, but when we saw how dark everything looked with the gray paint and existing black frames, I was in agreement that a change needed to occur.  We've been meaning to do a specific craft for a while now (see the painting of the tree) so this seemed like the perfect opportunity and the rest of the wall decor followed suit.  We'll be sharing specifically how we created the tree painting and more specs about the wall decor on Wednesday's post.
