This middle shot is from Southern Living and is a GREAT example of how to do a picture wall and see if you'll like what you have before you commit by putting nails in the wall! The last one is so stark and graphic and I LOVE it a lot.
That black chest has been with us since before we married. Everyday on the way to work when I was younger, I'd pass this little antique shop. One morning the elderly owner was dragging this chest outside to put it on display in front. I slammed on the breaks (well there was a RED light too) and then quickly turned into the 2 car parking lot. He was asking $100.00 which I did NOT have so I begged him to hold it till the end of the day. I went to work and begged my DAD to spot me the money! I loved it that much! It's been with us ever since that very night. We have been married 17 1/2 years and I got it the year before we were engaged. It's been all over our house and even used as the changing table (with a pad on it ) for all three children. I still love it!
By the way, you may notice that pretty little Scentsy warmer on the chest. Right now it smells deliciously like
warm, freshly baked cranberry muffins. Mmmm. Don't forget I have a SCENTSY special for October. If you spend $50.00 I will give YOU a FREE wall plug in and a scent bar! That's a $20.00 value, so you can buy a couple presents for the holidays and GET SOMETHING FUN FOR YOURSELF!
