Shadow Box…

It is Thursday and I have a busy busy day ahead… is shop and prep day for Matt’s cookout tomorrow. I am headed to Sam’s ….but buying buns, meat, sides, pops and what not for 34 people just might take 2 carts! So wish me luck!!

BUT before I head out I wanted to show you all my coffee table………… (It’s HERE) This is from Pottery Barn and it is so unique and once again……we were able to buy this table off the show room floor and they gave it to us for 1/2 off!!! It is the Townsend Coffee Table …

What is special is that it is basically a shadow box, Pottery Barn showed it filled with shells and what not but I immediately knew I would fill it with our memories……

 I alternated between decorative balls (balls….ha) and then I used the other compartments to show off Ticket stubs, memories, our wedding guest book and pictures……

 So when you come over our coffee table will be a conversation piece. Come fall and winter I will replace the balls (ha) and put in pumpkins or ornaments to match the Holiday!

I really think it’s neat….a tad busy but I have never seen anything like this…turning our coffee table into a real shadow box filled with our life and things we love!

You likey???
