I found a pair of urns on Craigslist for $15 each and was subsequently faced with the challenge of where to put them!
Have you ever done that? Bought something and then tried to find a place for it?
They have such a beautiful silver patina that only comes with years of age. How could I turn away?
The people I bought them from absolutely hated them!
They said they were so cheap because they had holes in the bottom. I didn't have the heart to tell them they were drainage holes. LOL!
In the end, we were all happy!
This is my front entry "before". I never intended for the painting to stay. It belongs in the Family room. It was overwhelming in the entry.
The space is about four feet across, from wall to wall. More of a wide hallway than an entryway.
The ceilings are 18 feet tall and I thought the large painting would work but you cannot stand far enough away to get the proper perspective.
Here it is now! Loving it! The unicorn crest is perfect here! I almost put it on Craigslist! So glad I didn't!
I practically have to do yoga to get a decent photo because of the angle of the library wall!
To refresh your memory, here is the unicorn crest before I painted it!
I am trying to picture what this vignette would look like if I never painted anything?
If you recall, this cabinet was a Craigslist find, as are the side tables that I used as plinths for the urns.
Looking at this vignette, I realize how much paint I have used since we moved in. LOL!
The crystal candle sconces were also Craigslist finds.
The pair of winged cherubs were initially purchased for use in Gracie's nursery, flanking either side of her crib.
Detail of cherub...
I use ostrich feathers, rather than tassels for the door keys. I found a shop on ebay that carries them in every color of the rainbow.
So excited to decorate for the holidays...big plans for the entry!
