I really like decorating for summer, love all the shells, sand, and beachy things that make home feel like a cottage by the sea. When it came to hanging something over the sofa where my 2 large equestrian prints were, I was at a loss, I didn't have anything big enough so I had to figure something out. I looked at my white ladder which I use to hang my vintage tablecloths on, (a thrifty find at the flea, $20 ), I thought it might work if I hung it sideways on the wall. I didn't even have to hammer in any new nails! Hung it up and then put my photos of the kids in white frames on the rail, leaned my boat sign on the top rail, perfect! I love the way it looks, and the best part is I didn't have to buy anything new! Even though you can't see much of it, my red, linen sofa is also a thrifty deal. It belonged to one of my BFs. She bought it for around a $1000. and had it for a couple of years and then decided it didn't work cuz she had 2 (adorable) dogs who just wouldn't stay off it. So, she sold it to me for $150! I love the pop of color and it fits right in with my brown, olive green and red color pallet!
