Dining Room Art: Sneek peek

The barn Door is almost finished!!! We're putting the finishing touches on it this weekend and will have a final reveal MONDAY!!! Fingers Crossed!

You've probably heard me talking about ripple effect decorating . . . in short it's one change leads to another. I think you know where I'm going with this.
With the barn door being done I thought that the dining room needed new artwork, our DIY artwork was lovely but more of a temporary fix . . . although it will definitely find it's way somewhere else in the house.

We're just deciding on what the best height for the new art is. I always find Dining Room art a weird thing to hang, because your sitting down when looking at it . . . but you'll also see it standing up.

Please excuse the poor picture quality this pic is from the craigslist listing!!

We're super excited about the new artwork! The dining room wall is seen from almost every room on our mainfloor so it had to be spectacular and we LOVE these prints!

  1. Love the prints! Can't wait to see the room come together. I agree...the height of art in a dining space can be tricky.

  4. The rule of thunb is to always hang your art on 57" center. "On center" means that the middle of the picture is at 57". Obviously, the hook will be higher. Interestingly the 57" standard represents the average eye height and is used as the standard in many galleries and museums.

    If you stick to this standard, you create a harmony among all the pictures in your home as they will always hang in relationship to one another from their centers and not their sides.

    This also solves the problem that most people have of hanging their art work too high.

  7. Oh it looks like it has been there for the whole life of the home, which is FANTASTIC! I adore so very much how it turned out. You have quite the handy hubs, you both did an amazing job on the design and install, it really adds so much character!

    Congrats, I know you have been excited about a barn door for awhile now!
