the rustic shelf that was in this space previously. It has been there for a long time, and even though I love it, I felt limited with how many things I could actually "style" on it.
I would like to possibly get myself some of these ones (*affiliate link) when they fit into our budget, or make something similar to this on another wall, but until then, I decided to work with what I have. And this shelf was it.
Part of my collection of art books, some antlers, a German license plate from the flea market, a little bowl made by my sister...
Stacks of my magazines and catalogs. Dominoes in an antique egg basket.
Ever since I put out dominoes, my kids have been playing with them every day. Being 2 1/2 and almost 4, they of course don't know how to really play, but my husband sets them up for them in elaborate ways and then they get a thrill out of knocking them down. They have been wanting to do that in the evenings rather than watch TV shows. I think that is pretty awesome. And all from just throwing some dominoes in a basket. I had know idea it would create some impromptu family togetherness.
whole board dedicated to it...oh if only I could study under the likes of Emily Henderson...sigh), I like that it is functional as well as appealing to at least my eye and gives the room a bit more character.
I am just dying to show you the whole room makeover, but it will still be a few more days (editing though the 300 photos I took takes time...ha). I hope you will come back to see the rest!
Till next time...
