Framed oil painting has returned to dining room
The framing shop did just what I wanted, and I think it turned out even better than I'd expected. Right now, it's hung so that the middle of the painting is about 58" off of the floor. The painting itself (framed) is 56". The top edge of the frame is about 4-5" higher than the china cabinet, but you cannot really tell that in some of these pictures because they are pictures, and I didn't want to distort them by standing on something. So I just took a bunch of different angles.
Anyhow, let me know if you like it and if it should be higher or lower or left alone. I hate messing with my plaster, and the nice wiring the frame shop used, so I really don't want to have to move it unless it's absolutely necessary. I just think it'll look silly if it's hung lower because it'll be too close to the floor.
You can sort of see here that it is higher than the china cabinet if you look into the mirror.
