Ok, just made it back from vacation very late last night, and I really wanted to do all of the challenges, that's part of the challenge right? So anyway, I tried several variations and I liked a couple different ones. This one uses red pepper over the black, with a gold dry-rub on top, I think it looks sorta vintage which I associate with Shabby Chic. As usual, there are alot of spectacular and different pieces on the home page which I really enjoy. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
