3 years ago, when Savannah and I took her Coming of Age trip, we lugged back a weather worn branch as a souvenir.

Typically I use it as part of a cluster of weather worn branches leaning in a corner somewhere in our home.

But a couple of months ago I got an idea to use it differently.

Two rod and shelf brackets later (totaling $6), plus an unadorned 1x10 from the garage (plus a few screws drilled by Doug) and look what we have...

An entry room with interest!

It feels very organic, simplistic.  My kind of appealing.
