I’ve hoarded a few art pieces to hang in our bedroom. Nothing new, just things I liked that didn’t fit anywhere else in the house. But the group seemed incomplete. So I made another nail and string dude. Because I wanted gold, I spray painted some nails. And a chunk of scrap MDF black.
Using an old envelope with marks as my template, I made a plus sign. To keep the painted nails, well, painted, I covered my hammer with a scrap of leather.
Then went crazy with gold embroidery floss, covering the center, then wrapping around the outside twice.
A mismatched, mixed bag of favorites is now a gallery wall in our bedroom.
Very, very slowly our room is starting to feel lived in. Sheesh, only a year and a half later. And we’re covering up the awful orange peel texture and spotty cobalt blue walls.
Oh I can’t wait to scrape the popcorn off the ceiling, replace the old windows, and finally repaint this room.
What do you think of the new art? Have a happy Friday and weekend, everyone!
