Dining room makeover: PART 1

Y'all remember a few weeks ago I was dreaming about dining rooms
Well, I knew it would be awhile before I had the time/budget/weather to work on it, so daydreaming was all I could do. 
However, yesterday I got quite bored and stir crazy (the day before I was super sick and didn't leave the couch ALL DAY - ick.) so I decided to paint the dining room wall. I know, weird thing to do when bored, but I had the itch.

I've been wanting to do it - I used the left over paint from my bedroom mini makeover.
I was worried the dark color would make my already tiny dining room space look even smaller, but actually....quite the opposite happened!!!

The dark wall gave the space some depth and really made the black and white photo pop! My camera got screwed up (even worse than normal) so the camera and lighting are terrible, but here's the picture for Step 1 of my dining room makeover:


BEFORE:
(an old picture from when my kids were in highchairs)

AFTER:
Ugh - I'm so mad at my camera....but I promise it looks GREAT!

It does look great! I agree it makes the room look larger and it definitely frames that fabulous picture. I do the same thing sometimes with left over paint when I get bored...its a sickness I have ;)
