I am starting to wonder if I will ever finish this room.
You are all probably tired of hearing about it! LOL

Over this past weekend, I had sometime to play with that very empty wall on the left side of my new craft room.  
If you remember, I mentioned it on this post.

That wall is bigger than it appears to be so it has taking me a while to figure out what to do with it.

I did start with an old small shelf I had forever.
It used to be red and it has served many purposes during the years. 
It was scratched and in bad shape and even missing the pegs.

I gave it a good cleaning and painted it, bought new pegs at Hobby Lobby and at the end, I traded one of the pegs for a small bird knob, also from Hobby Lobby. It was so cute I couldn't resist.
 After it was finished, I went shopping in my storage closet for items to decorate the shelf.

My husband built for me the small window to put over the shelf and added to it the wreath I made a few weeks ago and a metal bow painted teal that I bought a hundred years ago from Home Interiors.

The wall is so big, it still looked empty, so I decided to add some shutters which I decorated with a small red star. 
Well, we live in Texas! :)

I am still working on creating a small sitting area right under it and one of the items I will be using is this beauty that my husband got me for Mother's Day. I am also in the process of making a table skirt for a round table I have.

What do you all think? It is coming together, slowly but surely.
