I had a slight hint of creativity come over me and I took a small mason jar and put those glass bead things in it and a satin ribbon around the top. Then I took some flowers and leaves out of the pumpkin arrangement and popped them in there. It adds a little fall flair to the shelf. I like it! The other little mason jar is some of my beach glass.
Here's a close-up of just the shelf.
The frame and shelf there were gifts when we got married. I really like them, but they needed something. They were a light oak color which I'm not crazy about so I painted them black. I like it! I keep looking around the house to see what else I can paint and I have a few things in mind, but I'm gonna take it slow so the hubby doesn't get too scared! ;) The four frames are things I'd like to paint black, but I'm not sure he would agree! The pictures are really pretty shots he took when we were studying in Argentina.
Here's a shot of the whole wall together. I'm likin' it!
