(I am taking a break from showing kids, dorm rooms, apartments, first days of school........
I need a break! Of course, #2's dorm room can't be left out. It will just have to wait a day of two!!)
Back at the beginning of the summer I ordered a piece of furniture for our den. The place I ordered it from makes custom pieces out of antique and reclaimed wood. Our den has a big wall that has always given me problems. I have never really been satisfied with it how it looked. I have tried putting pictures on it, furniture up against it, but the wall is so big everything looks too small.
I ordered a piece that is just like this, but in a different color.

I cannot wait to get it. I am expecting a phone call any day now.
I know it will definitely fill the wall up, and I am a little nervous about the initial shock of it.
I am not sure what to put on the shelves, we already have a full wall of shelves and cabinets around the fireplace. I think I might have to keep it simple and go for a library type look and put a lot of books on it and maybe some pictures. I am really looking forward to the storage underneath. I plan on putting off season platters and bowls there. (I have way too many dishes and am a sucker for platters. ) It will be nice to really feel like I can check that room off my To Do List. Of course there is always another one ready to take its place.
