To save money and infuse my personality into my place, I decided to make my own pieces or use things I already had on hand. The above shot is of the entryway. A old tray from a secondhand shop holds all the things I may need to grab before I go out the door (purse, keys, sunglasses, etc).
I painted some branches bright pink awhile ago for no good reason but I couldn’t bring myself to ever toss them. I filled a vase with rice from the kitchen and placed one of the branches inside…with the addition of a small toy dinosaur…just cause And the “poster” is actually a piece of decorative paper/ wrapping paper.
I also scanned some drawings from my sketchbook to vectorize them. Then I printed out the vectorized files creating small prints to hang. Can you tell I am really into positive words? especially in my living space? I guess some visitors may find it strange that I have so many inspirational works displayed but I find it comforting.
One of my bathroom walls is also completely covered by a mirror so I printed out one artwork reversed–so when you are looking directly at the piece it won’t make sense but when you turn around and look in the mirror (to do your hair, brush your teeth, etc..) you will see the above compliment.
I know some friends are going to find that so cheesy but I think it is genius!
Have a great weekend! Or if you are a fellow Canadian…happy long weekend!
