our awesome craigslist find all in place and tucked away.
Opposite of the "changing table" wall, is where is crib is going to sit. As of a couple days ago, this has been whats hanging up.
So you can imagine my enthusement (enthusiasm + excitement = enthusement) when I saw THIS GUY at a garage sale over the weekend.
(I wish I would have taken a picture of me trying to get it home, alone, with a quarter of it sticking out of my open back of my SUV. The g-sale was only about a mile or two away from my house, and I drove slow with my cautions on the whole way taking back streets, but I still felt pretty stupid with one hand driving and one arm holding on to it through the backseat.)
Anyway, this "little" map was the catalyst to the "Lets-start-decorating" movement. Chris was really into the map (yay!) and so we took down the roll-up map and moved the nails over for a bit to make sure the map was centered on the wall.

I knew I wanted to pair these bad boys together, but I couldn't really decided on where to put them... until I saw the little space behind the door.
And now... Ta-daaa!!

This AWESOME vintage Texas Military map Chris and I scored at the Canton Flea Market for $10.
Oh, on this perfect spot? ... ok...
|Sorry these pictures are so awful... they were all with my iphone. I promise to break out my nice camera for some good pictures soon!|
Oh, and did you see that ladder to the right of the map in the previous picture? That too was a flea market find. "Ten-dolla-make-you-holla!"
|As I carried her away into the sunset|
She (he?) is actually going to be used to help dry our cloth diapers since putting them in a drier is a no-no, but I really like that natural wood feel that it brings into the room too.
There are a couple other things we've put up too, but for the sake of this post rambling on and me going into too much detail about flea markets and garage sales, I think we will leave it here for today.
I can't wait to show you what other little updates we're making (including more furniture, an AWESOME light fixture, and a thrift store upgrade) so I should be back with those soon!!
Do you like how it's looking so far? Do you have a favorite piece? I think mine is a tie between the antique-bar-turned-changing-table or the huge new map. I'm going to go sit in the rocker for a while and stare at both of them... excuse me.
