Happy Mother's Day!

Yes, I realize I'm a bit late. I have been putting off this post since then. I have no idea why though. I guess I was just being lazy and didn't want to take the pictures.

When Matt had his art show a while back I saw this awesome wall unit in our fabulous friends shop Out of Vogue. I loved that it had a ton of storage and unlike most vintage wall units it stands alone rather than bolts to the wall for support. That night I took a picture of it and also measured it to make sure that it would fit in the spot I wanted to put it.

Here it is in the shop.

The next morning I measured the spot and it turns out that it would fit just perfect with absolutely no room to spare. I guess I could have put it somewhere else if it didn't fit, but I really wanted to put it against the wall by the front door.

So for Mother's Day my wonderful husband got it for me. Here is how it looks in our house. I love it more than I can say. I love that I have a great place to display my vintage glass and some of my over-sized everyday items. I also love that it houses our dvd's and cd's so we don't have to look at them all of the time. There is also room for some of our records once we decide to move some into the house from the garage.

Please ignore the crown molding. I've been too lazy to paint it.

I added this on just because I think this little girl is cute!


  1. I love that piece. Finley is cute too! I really like the tilted shelf, such a unique and functional piece of furniture. :)

  2. :) I told you how much I loved this in your pics of Finley that she took of herself! LOVE it!
