Dining Room Wall Finally Done!

We took down the wall between our kitchen and our dining room about a year and a half ago. Now that our dining room is no longer a separate room, we repainted and totally changed the decor in that room. This one wall has been "in progress" ever since.

The first thing completed were the shelves. I found the little items over time and finished off the shelves the way I wanted over a year ago. But figuring out what to do with the space below it took much longer.

It looked like this for a long time. Picture frames with the pictures that come with the frame (I know, it's crazy). I bought the big letter "M" with the plan to paint it black a long time ago, but wasn't sure what else would go there.

I found this planter at a cute little shop by my house.

I finally put pictures of people I actually know in the frames, painted the "M" and now it's done! Only a year and a half later :)

Linking up here:
