I’ve been busy trying to freshen up the decor in my home and have started stealing from Peter to give to Paul….. taking from one room to use in another.

I’ve had this iron wall hanging from Pottery Barn on my dining room walls for 5-6 years. I’ve been bored with it there, but I haven’t been ready to get rid of it quite yet.

I had the idea of using it as a ceiling medallion in my office. This idea required me getting my husband to take down the existing light…. and getting our teenage son to help because SOMEBODY has to take the pictures.

You know what my husband is thinking right now….. it’s what every good husband is thinking when his wife has him in project mode. He’s thinking he adores me. And that he especially loves doing projects requiring wiring. And that he especially, especially loves holding extra heavy iron things over his head. Ha!

The piece had several holes to secure the piece to the wall (or ceiling). We used sheetrock anchors because I’m anti-stud finding. I wanted it up there regardless of the studs. Sometimes when you are decorating, you just gotta say studs, schmuds.

And I’m in LOVE with the end result! A little whimsical and a great re-purpose!

JOKE OF THE DAY: Two cowboy ranchers in Texas, they each had their own horse, but they could never tell them apart. So the first cowboy said, “I’ve got it!” The second cowboy said “What?” “I’ll shave the main on my horse.” Let’s do it!” So the cowboy shaves the main on his horse. But after a while the main grew back. The cowboys are having a really hard time telling them apart. Then the one cowboy said, “I’ve got it! “What? What? What’s your idea now? says the other” “I’ll cut the tail on my horse really small.” “Alright! Let’s do it!” So he cut the tail really short. But after a while it grew back. “Then the second cowboy said, “OK, this time I’ve got it!” You take the black one and I’ll take white one!!!!”
