I'm baaack!

After a rather painful episode involving the "genius bar" at my local Apple store, I finally have my macbook up and running and almost restored to its original magnificence.  Some things are lost forever, but that's life right?  Always hand over your laptop with great apprehension and never do so without backing up your hard drive before hand.  Lesson learned.

On to my current project.  I'm giving my teeny tiny foyer a cheapo makeover.  Prior to selling much of my junk this past weekend in a garage sale, one wall of my foyer looked like this:

The other side had a larger gold mirror (all of the mirrors sold in the garage sale - yay) that I forgot to photograph.  Rather unremarkable but it served its purpose.

For my makeover, I wanted to replace it with a larger more contemporary mirror.  I haunted the aisles of the local Home Goods for weeks and this weekend finally hit pay dirt when I saw this:

Keep in mind it's actually upside down because that happened to be the way I pulled it out of the car and it was rather heavy so I elected not to mess with righting it until I'm ready to hang it (either tonight or tomorrow).

Best part are these hooks (again, photographed upside down because I'm too lazy to go into iphoto and flip the picture)...4 in all...that you can hang your keys or a hoodie on to grab on your way out the door.

For the opposite wall, I'm going to cover it in black framed posters, photos, etc that I had around the house.  I only had to purchase a couple small black frames from JoAnn's (using my 40% off coupons) for the few things that didn't already have frames.

I can't wait to show it to you :).
