So many issues here. The white didn't match a single thing in our family room. Plus, it was so open and showed all our junk! Our cube shelf behind the dining room table helped with that. While I love the IRISH stuff, we have to find a new place for Ireland, because it was too much green in this space - it didn't match! Frodo's kitty condo got nixed from here too, it's fun for him but way too ugly for our public space!
So here is what we ended up with:
For our wedding we got adorable little cocktail plates that have cities on them. We hardly every use them for parties (always use plastic for parties! lol) so I decided to use them for decoration. What do you think?
There are six different plates that have six different cities on them. I love them here because it introduces our "travel" theme in the house (London in the family room, NY in the dining, Tuscany in the Kitchen, Paris in the bedroom, etc...) We still have to fill that shelf with stuff.
You measure down where your nail will hang off the frame, or in this case, the plate and draw an X on your ad where the nail will go. Then, put your nail right through the X.....
Then you hang all your lovely pictures, or plates, viola - all done!!!
Here is a close up shot of one of the plates, LONDON of course:)
So that is what I was working on this week! I'm also about halfway done Bella Tuscany. I'm off to read that now...I have to get to bed early since Career Day is tomorrow! It's my first as a school counselor!
Have a great week everyone!!
