Paint and Something for the Wall

We finished painting the dining room last week. I was a little nervous as the paint was going up, but I really liked the way it turned out. The color is Benjamin Moore Forest Moss.

We also added a vintage map of our neighborhood to the wall. Actually using the picture moulding as opposed to the 30 nail holes I patched in the wall worked out very nicely. The map is from Althea Maps and Prints which can be found in the Coe and Channell Antique shop at 2727 Hennepin Ave S. The frame was custom made by Dard Hunter Studios.

Looking great! I have an old map of the original park plans near us (drawn by Theo. Wirth!) that I bought from Althea Maps at Coe & Channell, too. Mine is still waiting to be framed, though.

Thanks. That sounds very cool.

I am really bad about actually framing and hanging anything on our walls, so this is an accomplishment for me.
