Yesterday I got the urge to finally finish a project I had percolating in my brain. I pulled things from all around the house and finished up a collage wall. Sometime last year (while on my blogging break), Sweet Hubby and I did a faux board and batten wall in our living room. I love how it looks, but I struggled with what to do in the space above it. Until this week. :)
Everything I used was already in my house, I just gathered up several things that I thought might be interesting together, sketched out a basic composition and started hanging! (That darn ceiling fan blade...I couldn't get a shot without it! Haha!)
On the left side of the collage wall, I added a clock I made years ago from an old plate, a corrugated tin letter C (for our last name) that I purchased at a craft show last week and a carved wooden trivet.
The old ladder in the middle had been leaning against our shed outside for over a year. The paint is chippy and it was starting to warp. I thought, "what the heck?" so I hung it on its side and added my "Give Thanks" banner. I had to remove the blank end pennants to make it fit, but I love it! (Order yours here!)
The right side of the composition features a ceramic trivet, a metal star (painted navy...sorry, our lighting is crazy right now!) and one of my thrift store frames (freshly painted and glazed). The little plate in the center now features a vinyl grey turkey, chosen by Miss A...I probably would have chosen a leaf or something, but it's growing on me. :)
And the full wall...sick kiddos, so the TV is on. :) And do you see our newest family member, snoozing on top of the chair in the corner? His name is Bo. I'll introduce you to him next week, maybe.
