Paint by Numbers and Computer Corner

I finished the paint by numbers last night. Stuck it in the painted frame and put a matt I`d painted gold along the sides because the picture is only the size showing....

My computer was the first thing in view originally when walking into the kitchen. By moving the fridge and stove, I was able to put it on the other wall and imitate a corner effect by placing it beside the fridge. It also helped the fact that the fridge stuck out. The stove is now in a built in area where the fridge was, at the end of the counter and is hidden from immediate view. This I like because it`s almond while the fridge is white. So it helps with them being two different colours. And now I have a great spot on the fridge to put that pretty calendar in the new year. The cords for the computer showed underneath the old desk I painted, so for now I`ve just fastened a tablecloth along the edge to hide them. I like the look though later I might replace the cloth with some fabric so it hangs better. The doorway is just to the right of this picture.

The wall items are hung low because although the ceiling is high, the wall doesn`t go right up to it. It`s bordered with a dark wood trim and there`s a thick wood beam inbetween wall and ceiling. Sounds strange but half the room is like that because there is a long shelf above the other wall to put things on. This was a small barn years ago originally. I may have to juggle that plant around a bit and place it more in the middle. Pictures are great for seeing what isn`t quite right!
More pictures another day. I still need to put a few more things up :)
