A score for 1724


I scored this rattan hall tree yesterday


and think it might be "just perfect" for



the "Dream Project" that Lisa and I are working on.



It would be ideal placed against the back wall directly across from the front door. 



There will be a bench underneath the window.


To make it "special" I want to replace the missing mirror with a vintage oil painting of a ship.


Like this.


I also picked up this little beauty!


What do you think?

That hall tree is perfect, especially with a vintage painting. Are you going with a nautical theme perhaps!? Love the wicker chest and drawers too. I need to go shopping in your garage! haha.
