People say, "Oh you built your own house! You get to have everything exactly how you want it!" Sorry, no, this is not always the case. I would rather not have this thing here. But I need my ceiling to stay up. So here it is.
If it was larger we could put in a built-in bookcase, or a small piece of furniture. Nope.
What do I put there?
On one of our weekly trip to Menards for lumber and supplies (for a project I will share next week!) We strolled through the home decor section and ended up bringing home:
A vase with stick things!
Actually, I saw the vases at Menards a few months back, but they were 60 bucks...although they are heavy duty...about 40-50 pound vases..I couldn't justify $60 for it.
But this time...oh this time they were more than half off! 24.99 is more like it! And the sticks were only $2.99 per bundle. I will probably get one more.
I love the terracotta color, I almost got the red, but this goes better with the other accents in the living room, like my painted upholstery chair.
I love it right now. And since we haven't hung a thing on our walls yet...well, except toilet paper holders and towel racks...it brings a little more height in the room. I suppose we should get to hanging photos. But it's so hard to put holes in the walls when you pay so much to get them smooth!
So what do you think? Hate it? Love it? Better idea?! Tell me!
Are you a vase & sticks kinda person?
Do you have problems putting holes in your walls?
Any big weekend plans? We are going to a pizza cookoff!
