FINISHED AT LAST!

If you remember my post from awhile back, I showed you a shelf that my wonderful son-in-law made me. It has taken me some time to get it painted, hung, and things on it. I had several of you say I should paint it black, some said red, so this is what happened. First it was black. You know me....LOVE black but decided I had entirely too much of that color in the room. So I then painted it red. Next I put some walnut gel stain over the red and it really changed the entire color. The color is totally different than any I had imagined, but it's growing on me. The hardest part was deciding what to put on it once it was hung. I am sure I'll be changing it, but for now this is it. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I can't believe y'all were here and we missed you! I texted Amy during the game b/c I didn't see her but she didn't get it until we'd already left. Hope you come again soon!
