We have concrete walls in our apartment. To hang all these pictures I would have had to drill 11 holes!
In order to hang all my little to medium paintings (some mine, some painted by friends) I devised this system. I ordered a large piece of plywood and had it delivered. It didn’t fit in the elevator we had to carry it 11 floors up! I had a friend come over and cut out the shape. We even hung it up straight away. I needed help after all! Next I painted it and hung all the paintings. I think it will change and evolve over the years. I thought about gold leaf… some future day perhaps.
I recently found the chandelier in an antique fair. I had some help wiring it up.
Here’s how that piece of furniture looks in the living room. It’s 1950’s or 1960’s, french. I think it’s great how it hides all my books away for a neat and clean look.
The cover on the sofa bed still needs to be sewn. And lots of other stuff to do before the living room is finished.
You could say the kitchen is my favorite room. Well it’s the room that’s closest to being finished! Here’s some little peeks.
That little kittycat head bobber kills me! I would love to tattoo it someday, any takers?
