Whatcha think?? Yea or Nay--

My very first post to my blog--Yea for me!

Don't judge me, but yes I did hang a HUGE Christmas wreath in my basement. (And when I say huge I mean like as tall as my 4 year old.) I found it at my local thrift store for $5.00!! I could not leave this baby in the store for someone else to snag up. I brought it home around christmas time and was very excited to show my husband. Lets just say he wasn't as excited as I was. He had different plans for it. Like to go and hang it on our neighbors door so when they opened their door--BAM!! Big wreath in their face. Ummm--No Thanks. A little funny and maybe a good back-up plan if I cant think of anything else. Moving on---

I have this empty space on the wall behind my couch and I thought it would be a perfect spot. So up went the wreath.

But it needs something in the middle. What?

How about a white shelf I have had laying around, taking up space. And throw some stain on it.

Now spray paint some stars the were taking up space. Throw some stain on them too.

And this is what I ended up with. The wall color is different but only because I took the two pictures at different times of the day. And basement lighting is no good for picture taking.

So is it too Christmasy? Maybe a little, but I kinda like it. I think its growing on me. Or I guess the wreath could be growing. It is a pretty big wreath.
Here is a close up of the shelf and stars.

Tell me what you think.
$$$-The cost part-$$$
Stars--$2.00 at a yard sale this past summer
paint & stain--already had in garage=free
So total cost was $7.00
