More of my Dining nook room wall!

I've been hard at work in my little dining room (it's actually a nook...)

I posted this the day before yesterday!

Complete with the detail of the destressing I did of the letters... (beautiful right?)

But I thought it was missing something. So I talked with my good friend Amber, and she said the best thing to do was add a couple more plates and maybe a couple of pictures for balance on the other side of the mirror... I agreed with her.

But right now I am kind of broke...

So my old plates that were in the donate bin came to the rescue!

I spraypainted them Ocean Sea Breeze that I had left over from another project.

then used a stencil I had to paint around in black and added a T to one and a Est. 2005 to the other... (better pics of that later)

Ta dah!!! What do y'all think?
