Putting it all on display

Before becoming a homeowner, I had no experience with the art of thrift shopping. And while I'm no master...I would say I'm getting close to getting my thrifting black belt. One of my favorite places to shop is the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I've found all of our great vintage/retro tables and our dresser there. Most of our items were purchased for around $15 to $50 too!

Since I'm a fan of their Facebook page, I wait for them to release their weekly photo album with the newest items in stock. And this week I noticed a sexy little mid-century modern display shelf for only $50! I knew I had to have it for our formal living/dining room. So we headed on down to our favorite spot in town(aka...the ReStore) and paid for the shelf. Hubby and I both have cars that are too small to fit he borrowed a truck from someone and went back for it this morning. It has been in our home for just an hour or so, and I love it! Initially, I thought abut maybe painting it white. But now that it is here in the space I actually prefer it as is. I love the way the chocolate bounces off our navy walls!

Behold...our newest baby in all of her mid-century modern glory!

Now....we just need to figure out what to put above it. I'm thinking maybe a photo wall like this....
