Nikki McDonald level-classic July 30, 2014

Thanks, everyone. This is a personal favorite. I actually flipped it and like it better but entered the "wrong" one here. My sister and her husband - he picked out the image, she the size and presentation - just ordered this for their home as a medium sized canvas wrap. I did re-tone the wood to warm it up since the room it's going in has mostly browns and beiges and not the cooler grays of this version. It arrived yesterday and they love it :) #11095998
