A Vintage Tapestry

I recently found a vintage tapestry for sale, that I thought would be perfect for this large blank wall in the sunroom. In between diaper changes and naps, we zipped out to check out several things for sale by the same vendor. I found some great things, which I will show you soon, but one of my favorite finds of that day was this tapestry depicting a hunting scene.The tapestry is large, at 5 ft by 3 ft. I hung it with Command Adhesive strips as this wall is Hardiplank siding, and the hubs is hesitant to drill any holes in it (guess I can't blame him, but it certainly limits my decorating options).

The colours and subject matter are perfect for this space.

I may frame it, but for now, I am enjoying it just the way it is. 

The same person had another beautiful tapestry for sale.  I desparately wanted to buy it and make it into a bolster for my bed, but alas, it was glued down to a board and framed.  Too bad!!

I've made several changes in the Sunroom and Master Bedroom recently, and I'll be sharing these with you in the next several posts.

ps Baby Ella and the family are all doing very well adjusting to our life with a new babe. She's such a sweet, easy baby, and we feel so blessed! My posts will still be sporadic, as my main focus is my girls, and of course, the baby, but lucky for me, she is a fabulous napper, so I do manage to get in a bit of blog time!!

That is so pretty! My aunt had a similar tapestry hanging in her living room and I always admired it. The colors in this one match perfectly with your space!

Glad to hear things are going well. Soon enough the little babe will be sleeping through the night and life will get back to a bit of normalcy. Love the tapestry, looks great in the sun room. Diane

That tapestry is so pretty. I love it and it does go well with everything else you have on the porch!

Just remember it is very important to take time out for yourself every day too. Gotta refuel those batteries so you can be a better mom and wife! Ha! Love your tapestry against the color of your walls. It's a perfect match.

I love it Andrea! Looks perfect in this room. I would not frame it. Most tapestry's are hung by a rod. My mom had an enormous one that was on the wall of her staircase...very beautiful!
