Have you ever received a gift and had no clue what to do with it? I received a gift from my husband many years ago; in fact I think it was while we were dating, I was clueless on what to do with it. This gift ended up being boxed away for years. I had actually forgotten about it until I opened a box that was heading out to our moving sale. There it was, just a white mat surrounding a blue picture of an iceberg. The words on it read: "The depth of a soul is not measured by what appears on the surface, but what lies in the heart." But I still had no place for it, no decor to match it or even a frame for it. Instead of trying to sell it, I kept the picture for sentimental reasons.
With money being tight due to moving into our new home I just could not run out and buy paint for every room. So I have had to make do with some of the colors in my house. My upstairs bathroom was one of those rooms that fell into that category. This bathroom was painted blue with a white vanity and a chrome light fixture. I have placed a blue and and black shower curtain in it and added a black rug. Over all the bathroom decor with the blue walls turned out very good. But I needed something over the potty to tie the room together.
Going through boxes again, I came across the picture of the iceberg. When I looked at the picture this time I immediately thought of my upstairs bathroom.. So I went to Hobby Lobby and found a frame. I wanted this frame to look nice and not overpowering. I decided on a black frame with chrome trim. I also saved 40% on the frame.
The frame with the picture in it added that special touch to what was missing in my bathroom. I love the picture and I can't believe I have waited this many years to frame and hang it.
