I went out on Saturday morning and hit a few yard sales before running errands--all by myself, no children in tow! Wow, what freedom! I hardly ever do that! I wanted to bring one of the munchkins with me, but opted to leave them at home together so they could entertain each other in the backyard while my husband worked on pulling out more overgrowth on the slope in our backyard. He is SO close to having that whole mess pulled out!
Anyhow, most of the sales I found were full of junk. One sale that was supposed to be a huge one in a church parking lot would have easily fit into my driveway. Such a disappointment!
I did, however, buy this for $1--I was pretty pleased with that price.
I like the texture and dimension it will add to one of my walls. I think I'm going to put it in my laundry/powder room (yes it is a dual purpose room--not my choice!) and although originally I thought I would need to paint it white, I think the color actually will work quite well in there. It is a bit hard to tell in the pictures, but it is a yellow green color with a brown rub. Pretty and a bit different.
Now I need suggestions on two things. First is what to hang it up with--it has a big circle at the top for hanging. I was thinking of using a small knob from the hardware store. What do you think? Second, what should I put in it? Towels aren't really necessary since it just is a powder room with a handtowel. I'm a bit stumped on this! I think it will be put up just above the washing machine and very close to a window...in case that info helps!
