It's been a while since I did a house update - the little things take time I think.
Repenting in leisure does not suit me .. especially if I have to walk past something
"not quite right" everyday, and especially even more if that something is an art work,
which usually, being a thing of beauty, has a pretty price-tag too.
I wanted something to go above the hallway bench.
I'm not sure where I got the rest of my idea from. Things tend to come to me in dreams,
so we'll go with that. I know I was aware of steel words you could buy from stores,
but they weren't quite right for me - size, pricepoint, or font.
I know I did steal some inspiration from them though.
A cheaper copy, if you will.
And I wanted to mount it somehow.
I know it's a bit trendy, but I do love the pallet look. I have a pallet coffeetable, and have
always loved a rustic edge. Also, I have Scottish blood, so you know .. hello pricepoint - ✓
This pallet was gifted from a friend who actually made the most awesome deck seating
system with built-in flowerpots. From pallets. Oh yeah. 'tis sweet. Very sweet.
So there you have it .. a bit more of my house.
I dismantled the pallet and put it back together to the size I wanted, and then I shaped
wire to make my word. Once happy with everything, I wrapped the wire in wool and
fixed it to my pallet.
By the way, try finding a nice thick wool in Melbourne in a good hue.
I seriously bought the last ball of this stuff and I looked in a fair few places.
That frame with the bunny in it?
I bought that on my honeymoon 18yrs ago. The frame that is, the bunny print was
another gift from another friend ( I have good friends, huh? )
There's more hallway, obvs .. we've just put some prints up on the other side too ..
but I haven't finished tweaking, so .. another day.
I just wanted to share this because it's one of those projects that worked out just how
I wanted and I so love walking past it and I love it. I think it looks great with the
yellow and red and green and orange .. I couldn't have planned it any better if I tried :D
