~ A Bit of a Re-Do ~
I'm afraid I don't have a "before" picture but for the longest time I have had these two shelves above my computer monitor and for the longest time I have had Beanie Babies lined up on both of them....yes, Beanie Babies! I used to collect them but over the past few years I've come to only buy the occassional bear....it was time for a change. Over the weekend I decided to prim up these shelves that I look at ALOT. They were a natural maple color so the first order of the day was to paint them black, sand, and stain....once they were back up on the wall the fun could begin!....but wait, these shelves are only about two and a half inches deep so that is quite limiting as to what I could put up there....ok so it was just going to be a bit of a challenge, that's all....well I played all day yesterday with different things, this is what I came up with and I like it! Both of those plates are available in my web shoppe as well as that cute little box stack and the cupboard angel. I love those plates and I love how the colors in the boxes look so well with the plate up top! I also like the way the cupboard angel looks with the star plate! I've had that sign for quite some time, had it custom made by a gal who sells signs and blocks on ebay. Oh and the wall color....it's a smokey lavender....which doesn't exactly scream primitive but lavender and sage are my two most favorite colors. I have lots of greens in my house so the study, where both husband and I have our desks, we painted a shade called Mountain Lilac back in 2002 and have never changed it because we both like it. So there ya have it....I know everyone loves seeing pics of others' homes and displays so I wanted to share the change!
