Today's project involved sprucing up the entryway. Our dear friend Ted passed away last month and he used to occupy the front room. As his last few items are being sold, we were left with a blank wall. We really wanted to hang the water buffalo head - it's beautiful and eye catching, except the water buffalo literally took a nose dive earlier this week, and did a job on his nose, so he wouldn't work. So, we decided to have some fun and pick things out from around the shop. Here are the results...
|The main focus of the wall is a piece by Alice & Jay which is an art piece made of found metal objects. This one includes a framed teapot with wire "tea" spilling out.|
|We picked a few round elements like this tin flower-petal mirror, a round distressed tin piece and antique wooden architectural pieces.|
|Here's a closeup of some of the uniquely shaped tin pieces we used and one of the round architectural elements.|
|This piece of tin looks like a snowflake to me. And with the weather we've been having, I'll gladly welcome a snowflake in June.|
A case of boredom cured! Thanks for looking.
