Although I love Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, etc.....I don't like my home to look like a magazine page. In addition, I am not fond of their prices. I like a piece here and there from "a store", but otherwise I like one of a kind furniture and art throughout.
Years ago my father gave me a very large antique iron ladle. I had it hanging on my kitchen wall.
Even though it was already unique I had to do what I do best and add some paint to it. I know it is rare for me to use white, but I figured it would go with whatever decor I choose once we renovate our kitchen.
So think outside the box when decorating the walls in your home. They don't always have to be covered with the typical picture or mirror. Have fun and be different!
