Dining room wall, Valentine mantle, and a giveaway

I was browsing pinterest yesterday and found a really fun painting project here. Jana wasn’t the first one to do this project either, she was just the one that caught my eye. I decided to revamp my dining room wall with this same pattern on a larger scale.

I pulled the colors from the media wall and my kitchen to create this herringbone wall. It kind of looks black in this picture, but its actually navy. It has such a graphic punch and is one of the first things you see when walking around the corner from my front door. 

I also updated my mantle. Sorry I never took pictures of my Christmas mantle to show you. December just seemed to get away from me. I drew a picture on a paper of what I wanted this chalk board to look like and let my 7 year old help draw it. I love it that she’s interested in art.

The rest of the mantle is really simple. I didn’t want it very busy because of the herringbone. I reused some sheet music garland from Christmas in the giant mason jar and swiped the tulips from my guest bedroom.

I painted the baseboards on this wall so I can cross one of 15 walls of baseboards off my “to paint” list. Slow and steady.

And for the giveaway…

When I was in Alabama, I bought this white enamel bowl. I love the way it looks on my dining table with some fake hydrangeas. It also looks fantastic as a fruit bowl in the kitchen. Lucky for you, there were two of them and I bought the other one to give away to one of my readers!
