Hahaha too much stuff. I liked that simple post. Mad respect for others opinions of course!!!
SNLY: The antlers are probably like a death in bed waiting to happen...not really but definitely a headache if they fell. They are pretty secure tho. Since they I bought then cheap up in Gunnison they were not yet mounted to anything. I didn't want to hassle with that so we just used L-shaped brackets. Luckily the antlers did already have a hole drilled in the middle of skull. :)

Light fixture I just put together from World Market's three-arm hard wire kit. I think it was about $25 and I used lamp shades I already had.

Thanks guys!!

Yeah I love the pictures...problem is after being in countless rentals over the last 11yrs...the walls are NEVER white. Never that clean, modern, beautiful white. Not here in TX at least. No...they are a nasty cream, beige, off white monstrosity!

@CHARLIE26 -- we've been renting for-EVER!! we are in a house now and have awesome landlords so it may be a bit easier for us now but we've always just hung everything normally and then when moving out spackle the holes in the wall and paint over them with maybe a sample size of that particular paint color. even now in our home i've moved pictures around and changed things up just in nine months and i continue to just spackle and paint.

I love the fact that it adds great texture to an otherwise "cold" area of the house...and totally agree dining rooms aren't intended to be very cozy for the most part...but honestly I would totally do this and maybe just move the skeepskin when we're eating...or put on a chair that's not being used. who knows but I do like it for aesthetics when the table isn't being utilized! I'm a dork.

Thanks AT peeps:

LINNYBEE: it's actually a star garland thingy that I got at a fair trade store in Cali. I cut it up and hung it from the branches. Otherwise I'm not sure what I would hang from them??

I will update once we have our precious one...probably be awhile unfortunately! And knowing me, will be different!

thank you! :)

MAMACITAMAHNS - actually they are hanging from the ceiling...I just used illusion cord (it's invisible wire like string used in jewelry making) and then tied the cords up to white ceiling hooks! It was actually pretty easy! But instead of having like one point on the ceiling for the branches to hang from, I have about four spots so they are all individually hung to create a bigger look if that makes sense. :)
