Since I am trying to cut back on shopping, my house projects have become more about reusing things I already have. So this weekend I decided to shuffle around some things on my walls. These posters I got at Target YEARS ago, and while I know they are not the height of decor, I love them still and that is what matters.These mirrors below I got at market for a great price and decided to use two of them in the hall where one of the posters above used to be and the other two I put above our bed.
My favorite project though was making a collage with variuos pieces we have collected over the years.
After many different formations this is the final one. The wall includes a poster from Double Decker, a festival in Oxford, MS, 2 pictures from Eric Weaver, that I bought in Venice Beach while visiting D, a piece of art from Africa that is made out of metal (bought when I was there with my Dad), another print of Oxford, two pieces from Jamie Hayes, a New Orleans artist, a print from Yellow Stone -a gift from my Husband, a 3-D beach scene from Chile-a gift from my Dad who is from there, and a poster from Memphis in May-a gift from a great friend as a going away present when I moved from Memphis to B'ham. I love them all and I am so happy to have them all on display instead of in various locations.
Finally, this was not a project this weekend, but it will be a future project. I bought this lantern for a INSANELY great price at Peck N' Hills, one of my favorite local shops, and I can't wait to put my spin on it. The problem is that I don't know how I want to use it and it will probably for the mean time end up with the other fixtures I am saving.
Can't you see it refinished, maybe a crazy color? Redo the glass? No glass? Endless possibilites, I was so excited about this find! More to come tomorrow....
PS-still trying to recover yesterday's post. This one went up early too. Things That Inspire I did get your comment, thanks for stopping by!!!
