Nice enough, but kinda boring and didn't fit in with my color scheme anymore.
At the time, I had it displayed like this ~
This was okay, but I wasn't really happy with it.
I knew that I wouldn't be leaving here for long. It just didn't pop. However, I decided that it would be fine there until I could figure out what wall to hang it on. DH was a trooper and held that mirror up to every wall in the house (some twice), but it just didn't look right anywhere. I was about to give up and accept the fact that this would be it's home until I was organizing the basement. Two little treasures appeared that gave me a brilliant idea.
What were those treasures you ask? Well, here they are ~
Two plain barn stars!
The idea came to mind and I was just hoping that I could make it work. The first thing that needed to be done was a coat of black paint.
On their way!
The excitement was building. They still needed a little something. How about these? ~
DH and my first initials
Black on black wasn't going to work, so out came the colonial red spray paint. Add a little glue and some time.
Custom monogram barn stars!
The arrangement needed something to finish it off. How about something significant from our lives?
The year we were married ~ almost 15 years ago!
Put it all together and this is what you get ~
I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! Personalized and one of a kind! It was worth digging into the basement for this!
