I'd been admiring her work for some time and was waiting til we found "the one" to place my order so I didn't jinx the search. I can't tell you how excited I was to receive it in the mail and have it framed ready for moving day.
Seeing it as I walk through the front door everyday continues to make me smile and reminds me how lucky I am to have found such a wonderful home for my family.
The small table it sits on is handed down from my parents home. I know there are a lot of people out there who want to paint everything gloss white, but I love it just the way it is.
What I do want to spruce up is the hat stand I've paired with it to create a "landing strip" - a place to collect all the mail, jackets, hats, handbags, etc.. that used to inhabit our dining table.
I think black is the best way to go, but wondered if anyone had another suggestion?
I'd also like to get rid of the striped wall, but I promised The Man some time off from painting after all the work we did on our old house.
