Here we are just up the stairs. I used the table I got for $15 at an antique shop. It was originally marked $135 or something crazy like that. The tall red shutters were originally bifold doors on my brother's laundry closet. He was getting rid of them, so like the scavenger I am, I asked for them. Just painted them red and am in love. We used the doors in our old house to hide my husband's gun case. Here I have used them to disguise all the ugly cords and whatnot from the foyer. Under the table I used a smaller set of interior shutters that I painted green to hide more cords. I love the charm they add also. Above the desk I have my framed chicken wire tag holder. I found the huge frame at a yard sale about five years ago and finally just added the chicken wire. Love it!!
An ugly mousepad would never do in this space, so I just covered mine. Its easy...all I did was lay down the mousepad on top of the fabric, trace around, cut it out and mod podged it on. Now it adds a little more charm to the space.
Here is the tag I made for June. I had a different idea in mind, but after reading some blog or another and seeing her summer banner, I thought that is just what I would do. So my June banner tag...
For those of you who guessed that I made the strawberry tag, you were right!! This was the tag I made for May. For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about...My Cali BF, Jenny, hosts a tag swap and we each make tags to send and one to keep.
