And suddenly my dining room looked like a museum...

When we visited Great Aunt E, she loaded us up with presents that she no longer has use for since she has downsized to a small apartment.

Among the gifts was a rather large, impressively framed piece of artwork.

There is some story behind it, unfortunately, I forget the details. Basically I think it has been in the family for a loooong time. I wasn't sure where we were going to put it at first - we don't have a ton of large walls where such a painting would be appropriate. But then we saw the one empty dining room wall and knew it had found a home.

Our dining room is nothing fancy. It is furnished with a table set that is falling apart that we got for $30 and a piece of carpet that is more like a functional runner than a decorative piece of flooring.
But, when we put this awesome painting on the wall, suddenly our dining room had class!

In fact, that wall reminds me a of a museum. I guess I have never had such impressively framed artwork in my house before but I can see now why people do. Just this one painting has transformed the dining room!
Thanks Great Aunt E!

Adrian's grandmother is always sending us home with stuff like that. Adrian rolls his eyes, but I love it!
