The Bar & some Black & Whites

for cory’s 30th birthday i wanted to get him something awesome. so i threw him a “stock the bar” party & had our dear friend make him a bar for our home. it was an awesome turn out & we are still so in love with our bar.

yesterday i stayed home and decided to organize the house= going through things i do not need anymore- getting more things to sale for another haiti yard-sale, and a lot of cleaning. while i was doing all of this the thought came to me to move the bar around and do something on the wall. i had just bought this self portrait book from the good will that had old black and white photos from way back in the day. i walked to cvs and got come black tacks (2 for $5.50) & came home and got started. you can see what i did from the photos below. the only thing  missing is some patio lights i want to hang behind! so happy with how it turned out.

  1. I’m impressed with how straight all the pictures are…lol! And what a great idea getting them out of a book!

    Ok so this is extremely random that I would remember something so detailed but I will offer it. I bought those exact lights to string across the backyard for an anniversary dinner and they are cheap, cheap, cheap! And no, I’m not doing a chicken impression. The bulbs are just too thin and fragile.

    So there you go…

    Eeek! I don’t want them if they are cheap! Do you have any other ones you know of that are good quality?
