Donald Trump and Our Dining Area

If Donald Trump were to walk into our apartment and see the ceiling above the dining area there's only one thing he would say. "It's huuuuuuuuge." If you love catching the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, you'll understand why I don't even see Donald Trump's face when I hear his name anymore. Donald now has Jimmy's face with the blonde wig that is even more hideous than Donald's own hair. I love Jimmy's impersonation of him, and something tells me that Donald finds it pretty amusing too. And why I'm using their first names, I don't know. It's not like i'm friends with them or anything. . . yet. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's a little clip for ya.

Anyways, back to the ceiling. I love the height of the ceiling, and one of the main reasons we picked this apartment was because it was the only one that we found that would fit our huge dining table.I'm planning for a big family someday and lots of entertaining if you can't tell. ;) Although I love the height of the ceiling and how airy it makes our apartment feel, it creates a huge big visual blank space. It's huuuuuuuuge!! 

big wall ideas

I wanted to hang a huge book quote similar to this one from Fable & Flame, but felt the quote I wanted would be better suited for over our "office" space.  

Than I remembered I got this huuuuuuge mirror (okay, I'm done) for free when I was working at a hotel a couple of years ago, and it' s been tucked away in it's box ever since. I finally pulled it out as an option for above our table. It might be hard to tell from the picture above, but this little corner of our apartment is pretty dark. I'm thinking the mirror will help bounce the light to lighten the space up and make the apartment feel a tad bit bigger.

After some debating, I've decided to paint it black to tie it in with the black chairs at the table, and hopefully, just hopefully, I can convince my husband that we really need to paint this wall. I think it would be so awesome and really make this  space something spectacular. So, keep your fingers and toes crossed for me! ;) I can't wait to share a few other ideas for this space with you soon! They're gonna be huuuuuuuuge! Huge! Huge! Huge! Huge! Huge! 

Okay, now for real I'm done.
