crooked pictures & a sideboard

Has anyone besides me noticed that all of my pictures are just a slight bit crooked?  Leaning to the left?

I've noticed it & been perplexed, but finally figured it out this morning.  I feel like I'm holding the camera steady with both hands… but my weaker right arm (the one that was broken) is actually not holding the camera with the same amount of pressure as my left arm.  Thus, crooked pictures!  Oh well.

This sideboard was a find from the North Fulton Community Center thrift shop ~ it's a hike for me to get there, but always seems worth the drive.

As usual, I was able to slide it out of my car onto its side all by myself, but had to wait for backup to get it situated :)

Don't you just love the brass plates?

I primed & painted… oldschool.  No chalk paint on this one.

The original hardware was beautiful, so I kept it.

Thanks for stopping by!
