So back to my inspiration I took the 5 grapevine wreaths I had out of the closet and grabbed my wreath hanger off the front door. I hung it on my old doors from my great great grandparents home and hung the grapevine wreath on it and I began to look around and think about some of the inspirations I have seen in all your blogs.
I thought about Donna at Funky Junk's great organizer with the bed springs and the dresser with the iron bed piece. I thought about the texture of burlap, chippy wood, rust, glass, and tin. I recently think I mentioned going to an estate sale and the person was an artist so I picked up a few frames that I thought I would hang empty because I love that look. Some are gold with chippy paint others white with text or creamy ivory. I have had some of them hanging in my bedroom. As I am looking around the room I see the really nice birdhouse I bought a month or so ago at a thrift store for $6 which I first painted a robins egg blue but it was a bit too bright so I re-painted it white. so I thought what about the birdhouse on top of the wreath and well you can see for your self.
Nice huh? It needs something else perhaps a little green moss in the birdcage. So then I see it what about another layer one of the frames on top of this. I swear I heard angels sing. What do you think?
Well I realized this was my niche I have been looking for so long for. I take another wreath and I think what can I put with this to somewhat match up with the other one. I continued to cruise around the house looking for something I could put on this wreath. The texture of the brown vine needs something white so I find this tin angel wing I found last year at Hobby Lobby.
Okay the scale is good but what else? What if I take the wreath and put it on top of a white frame so you have the white, grapevine texture, and white tin. Sweet! Maybe just one other thing.....this angel I attached to the frame with a little velcro.
And then maybe a few chandelier crystals and well I think I am going to hang it on top of the white door I was making a corkboard well because I have another board idea.
What do you think?
What about this?
Here is a teaser I am working on a picture frame inspired organizer on the lines of Funky Junk's inspirational piece. Here is a picture.....
