These are not the best quality of pictures but this is how I decided to hide a light switch and temperature controller in my hallway. I purchased these wrapped canvas beauties from AtHome. By positioning them right over the eyesores, I now don’t have to see them. It also allows me to hang art exactly where I wanted. If I hung around the thermostat, the art wouldn’t have been centered with the wall. It just would have created an odd look. However it was brought to my attention that your thermostat may not work efficiently being covered from the circulating airflow. So do this at your own discretion.
The depths of canvases allow for protruding switches and knobs of a circuit breaker door to be hidden seamlessly.
I bought some canvases and acrylics and just knew it would be easy to create my own art. Newsflash: it’s not. Something that seems so diy easy and fluid is really a struggle. I have painted over my mistakes and will try to try again at another time. The thing is, abstract isn’t really a mistake. It’s not suppose to make sense or be perfect but I am having a hard time creating that right….look.
I want just the right colors, a hint of metallics and not necessarily LOOK like I done it myself. I can draw really well but painting isn’t up my alley. I’m going to give it another shot but let us admire some good abstract pieces in the mean time.
When I saw this on Fabric Paper Glue I immediately thought about recreating this for my kitchen. I currently don’t have any art in my galley styled kitch so this would be cute and simple.
Love to see menus at weddings in chalkboard or windowpanes….
Vintage menu signage adds some fun to a kitchen. It reminds me of grits and eggs and country eating like at Cracker Barrel.
Framing vintage prints in a clean frame with a mat can keep the look more modern. Which is why I passed up the window pane glass frame at the Goodwill. I didn’t want too country of a look for my menu which is why I love how clean the one in my inspiration looks. So since it’s going yo be really cold this weekend, I should be able to share how thia turned out come Monday. Stay tuned. Are you tackling any home projects this wknd? Do share!
Whether framing a poster or using a mat, simple frames can often times be all you need. Create a bit of unity by using the same color frame. It really encourages focusing on the art. I love ornate frames but they aren’t always in the budget. You can buy really large poster frames for under $15 with coupons from places like Michael’s.
Buying art can be expensive. Ever thought of taking a calendar and using those images? A black and white calendar of architecture or landscapes would make for a nice gallery by placing them in like frames with a mat. No one would ever know.
Madrid-based architect Ignacio García de Vinuesa and interior designer Elisa Rodríguez salvaged original architectural details and married them with modern contemporary art and furniture in this home. Although I am tired of sea urchin decor, I am not tired of this light fixture. I’ve seen it before and think it’s such a show stopper.
The wood on the cabinetry is nothing short of gorgeous. Wow. Combined with black counters and herringbone floors, it makes for a very up to date space with architectural details to add character.
