Step-tan-su

A few weeks ago we ran across some beautiful Japanese paintings while we were out souvenir shopping with my Mom. One of our favorite paintings we have now was one that we bought while we were in Paris and then had framed when we got back. We have a few prints from New York. So why not get a painting to mark our time in Japan? It is actually 4 paintings that make one larger picture. They are still packaged up and waiting for the movers or otherwise I would take a picture and post it. We discussed where we could fit a painting like that in our new home and decided the entry way would be perfect. Now all we needed was a table to go underneath. I thought it would be nice to have a table that had an Asian look to it so we decided to start looking today. After talking about what we wanted and where to look we decided that maybe this would be the perfect place to put that step-tan-su that we have been wanting for 2 years.

After a lot of searching we finally found the perfect one!

{It can also stack so it had a long flat top}

But this last picture is how we plan to put it in our new house.

Now we just need to find a few things to decorate it a bit. I have some ideas in mind but now we just need to find what we are looking for!

I like it! I really like the way you plan to set it up in the new house. I looks great - but I wonder if a couple of toddlers might think it's cool to climb. You might have to stack it for a little while until the climbing stage passes. Or, just don't set any desirable items on top.

Anyway... it's beautiful!

As for your question, I feel like I'm having a boy, but at other times I feel like since my husband and I both feel that way that we'll have a girl haha! Have a good weekend!
