If you follow The Ironstone Nest on Facebook, then you know that I frequently post links to items I find that I admire. Back in early April I shared a link to these beautiful distressed, pair of wood angel wings that I found at Decor Steals, and they are now hanging on the wall in our living room:
And they are HUGE and heavy. They are 40″ long, made of wood and covered in tin “feathers”.
After initially hanging them, I decided they looked a little odd just sitting there all by themselves, so I was going to take them down and move them to another location. But before I took them down, I held up a print that used to hang in my Nana’s bedroom, thinking I would hang her print there instead.
I thought “hmm, they actually look nice together”. So I put on a coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White over the frame, we put a nail in between the wings and hung the picture smack dab in the center of the wings.
But after all that, I’ve decided the wings are definitely beautiful and would look excellent in the right room/setting, but not in our room. In fact, it doesn’t really match my personal taste at all. (shrug shoulders) Again, I can appreciate them, but they don’t belong in our nest.
So back in the box they go. Darnit all! I hate when that happens.
Have you purchased anything lately that you later regretted bringing home? If so, what was it? I’d love to hear about it.
Thank you for reading!
