Photo collage

Upstairs and down the hall from us are the twins bedrooms.  I had been trying to think of a way to dress up that wall since we moved in.  It's the first wall you see when going downstairs and it can also be seen if your in the entry looking up to the second floor.....So I finally decided on doing a collage of black and white photos, all in different sized black frames with white matting.  Only the entire wall is a place to hang pics of the twins. No random art hangings or shelves with vases and knick knacks (save that for my office) all the pictures are of them, I even added the characature drawings they had for a little whimsy...

The small space beneath the largest frame on the right isnt done just yet.  I plan to hang 2 wood letters an "M" and a "B", their first name initials right beneath that to finish up the collage.  I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.  I am sure at some point we will expand the collage but I decided to start small :)

For a console table for this space!  I cant find one anywhere - I've been to Home Goods, Target and the dot com version, Marshall's, all over the internet and haven't been able to find anything our style and reasonably priced.  Ideas??  My plan is to put it under the mirror, where those 2 storage cubes are sitting.

Console table will go on the wall to the right of this picture.
