my version of that overly priced branch

I really wanted a white birch tree branch for my living room
but I wasn't going to pay $80 for one...
So one day after my landlords cut down some branches from their trees
I scavenged one.
Isn't she pretty?

 first I stripped it,
 then I painted it,
 then I placed it.

Sitting and looking all pretty on the bookcase.
There is something oddly therapeutic stripping and painting wood.
Maybe I need to get out more...
But at least both the therapy and branch is all free.
