some dining room art

The room I’m focusing on most these days is our dining room.  Ever since we got a table and chairs at Christmas, I wanted to try to spruce up the room, make it more colorful and fill up the walls with artwork.  I gave the room some color with the bench I made here for the pinterest challenge.

I had these red leave things around the house.  As red isn’t my favorite color, I decided to spray paint them a dark green.

I also had these frames from goodwill that I spray painted glossy white.

I had some thick cardboard laying around that I cut to make the matte for the foliage and left a small brown, cardboard border around the frame.

I definitely like them, just not sure if it’s enough color for our room.  Still struggling with the whole giving color to a room.  But it works for now and I already had everything so it was free, which is always a win win.
