shall we. It began here!
After Mr. M was done with the construction of this space,
I painted the walls, bench, bead board and hook
rail and was finished with the work here.
With a few accessories in the space,
I was able to give it life.
I wanted to place a seat cushion on the bench,
but that will have to wait for another time,
for now this will work.
The oval picture frame on the right side of the
wall reads "love" and it holds my son's art work.
reads "practice patience please",
it is a great reminder of that virtue.
you see two different size photo frames.
I spray painted the large empty frame with white
spray paint and I left it as is, meaning no art work,
no glass or photo in it.
The point of that was to create a bit of an
architectural shabby look.
For the smaller frame I created my own art work and added
yellow to the background to coordinate with other pieces.
she made this pillow for me when I first got married
several years ago.
It has two sides to vary in color and the chevron pillow
behind it is also two sided and from Target.
The baskets below serve to hide the shoes, slippers and other
items such as dog leashes and so on.
was so much fun and the excitement of it all was self rewarding
both for Mr. M and myself. My favorite part of this area
is that it serves as storage and is functional for the whole family.
