TUESDAY DISPLAY CHAIN - NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON’T

For eight years I have looked at the thermostat on our Living Room wall and wished it was invisible.  To me it was the focal point when you came in the front door.  It always stood out in any wall grouping I tried.  I asked my sweet husband if we could hang something over it – some type of box or a shelf with something hanging from it and he was never agreeable to any of my suggestions.  This was really bugging me because he usually will figure out a way to let me have my way.  Well, I finally came up with the idea to lean a ladder against the wall with a coverlet hanging on it and I guess he thought this was an okay idea because a few months ago he found a ladder and bought it for me.  It is an eight foot section of an old grove ladder and I love it – but I love him more for doing this for me.
Here is the way it looked before.

And here is the way it looks now.  I think it is just the perfect solution.

I would like to find some more coverlets to layer with this one, but at least I don’t have to look at the thermostat any more.  Thank you, honey, for making my idea a reality.

This week Robyn of Primlish is hosting the Tuesday Display Chain for Misi.  Robyn chose the theme "Peek-A-Boo" - ways you hide your things or unique ways that you store things.  Be sure to visit Primlish  and check out Robyn’s display, along with the others who are joining in on this week’s Display Chain.  

With A Grateful Heart,
Sue
