081812 The Gilded Inspiration Wall
Remember this teaser?
Let's begin and see where I am going with this!
This was my big $10.00 score at a local antiques mall.
Pretty good for a Renoir, huh?
Of course it's printed on cardboard, lol!
But it's the frame I'm after.
My knight in shining armor cuts an insert for me :~)
And this will become a wonderful chalkboard!
Now to decide on an arrangement for my inspiration wall.
I measured off the size of the space on the floor.
This one seems off-balance...
This arrangement looks better.
Now to transfer it to the wall.
This is now the view from my scrapdesk!
The portrait is of Aunie.
The empty frame at the top will be strung with a banner - so fun!
The 2 empties at the bottom remain without inspiration as yet.
The leopard print fabric top left covers foam core to make a bulletin board.
The bottom left frame is backed with chicken wire
& I've used mini clothespegs to hold bits & bobs.
The mirror is minus it's County Fair ribbon (seen
on the desk) & glitter "E" but they will return.
It looks exactly as I pictured it! So happy
Here's the long view...
Kitty likes it!
Some of my favorite pretties :~)
Coming soon: the rest of the story,
or how I finished off the rest of the space,
including the dreaded closet...
