I found this painting at a local discount store by the name Jembro's. I know they are common to NJ don't know about anywhere else. But its a canvas painting of a wooden frame, of course I realize its mass produced but its looks so authentic. My kitchen is done in a rustic italian style with roosters, lemon tree, iron accents and pottery. So for me this painting was perfect, and it was only $16.99!!! You cant get a better deal than that its 24 x 36....c'mon where can you find a painting that size that actually looks realistic.
I also added the pictures of the space where the painting was purchased. I have it featured on my HGTV Rate My Space page http://www.roomzaar.com/rate-my-space/Kitchens/BELLA-CUCINA/detail.esi?oid=16526339 Its a nook area in my kitchen that to the left has a staircase up to my childrens bedrooms (I call it the kids wing). Not a place mommy likes to visit....4 children + 3 nice size bedrooms = a mess! lol The nursery is downstairs next to master bedroom.
To the right of the painting is our family message center. Everyone including my husband and myself have a clipboard that we use for invitations, school papers, coupons or whatever we need to remember and have access to. There are only 6 in the picture, but I have since added one for our new baby girl...she has a coloring book page with the #5 (and she is )on it that my 3 yr old made in school.
I highly recommend this, its keeps the children and yourself organized. Being the mother of 5 and ruler of 7, I need to be as organized as possible.
Hope you like my little piece of Italy.
