I promised I would share with you how I ended up using my fancy $2.50 thrift store frame. In order to do that, we need to take a little walk down memory lane!
Here is the landing on my stairs a year or so ago. I loved having all these black and white photos of my family and friends. It was a nice view to walk past every day!
But all the photos had to come down when we did our loft remodel, and I figured it was a good time to make a few changes. So, for awhile, I hung this mirror and wreath on the landing, but it didn't feel right somehow. Too plain.
Then I finished painting my Goodwill frame, and I figured it would look good as another "layer" on the mirror.
But then I stared at it for a few days and didn't like it. The space needed something else; it was too angular somehow. So back I ran to Hobby Lobby, to purchase a $2.99 grapevine wreath and some fake greenery. Picked up a glue gun, and about ten minutes later I had me a little wreath!
Now I am officially thrilled with the landing. And unexpectedly in love with this wreath! It's great when a problem forces a solution that's even better than the original idea!
