Thought it was real wood...it wasn't....it's particle board-like stuff.
But black spray paint blankets a multitude of sins...Ok, it doesn't at all, but it worked in this case.
I added some reproduction depression glass green knobs, added some coat hooks, flowers, well you can see it right here...
The silhouettes, I bought on eBay because the people were from my town. I think I paid $20.00 for them. The wooden whisky box I got at auction for $5.00 and there was other stuff in it too..., the figurine (you can't see it due to my wonderful photography abilities) is a cherub with a goat eating grapes, $1.99 at Goodwill; the white milk glass vase, $1.99 at Goodwill. The pitcher, I've had for years so we'll say 0 for that one. The black and white etching was a SWEET gift from my lovely bloggy friend Kathleen. There are goats in it. OH and the plates, the plates on the wall is a total rip off of the Nester. 'Cept I don't have as much open wall space. I actually collected enough white plates to go around the whole room, but it was a little much. So I opted for just two walls. I like it. Oh yeah, they were like $5.00 for the ones that you can see. So in this corner we spent a whopping...$60.00 (well about that with the spray paint and plate hangers and unseen stuff).
So once more:
Tommorow, I write on the wall and pick through the garbage. Yeah, I'm classy that way.
