SO I spent a day at the Old House Depot gathering supplies and picking out pieces of wood along with old hardware I thought would fit together. One of the workers asked what I was looking for and when I told him I was creating a piece of art from old wood, he looked at me funny. I don't think he believed I knew what I was doing. So in response to his confused expression, I said, "I will know it when I see it!"
I was so excited with the pieces I found so when I got home I played around with arranging the pieces and here is what I came up with:
Then I got approval from Morgan and Drew on the arrangement. Next step--paint the pieces! They have a lot of bright colors in their house...reds, oranges, greens, blues. I really loved the blue piece of wood towards the bottom left side so I decided to leave it as it was. Since their wall is light blue I thought it would help bring all the other colors together.
Thanks Morgan and Drew--for letting me have this awesome opportunity! I had so much fun!
So glad fall is here...
