a whole new wall . . .

The plate wall is up and I love it! It has elevated the dining area from 'all right' to 'awesome!''. I wanted to take a picture from straight on... but the lamp was in the way. I might need to change to something far closer to the ceiling.
Thanks again to Lisa Congdon for inspiration and Heather Moore for helping me start my collection:)
Oh... and to Michael - for putting up with my precise directions:)
