Schnitzel bank is hung…

Remember the estate sale loss that is to never be spoken about again in this household?
Well our replacement  has finally been hung…

My framers do not frame this style so we had to be creative…
The plexi glass was the most expensive, obviously…then we got really big screws and spacers…I spray painted them silver to make them a little shinier…

This is definitely a two person job…we screwed it right into the wall since there’s not a lot of weight to it…we did have to move it a little to find a stud
A  tip if you have any plans to do this yourself…drill the plexi glass together…and when your done make sure you don’t flip them around or your holes won’t match up

So what have we learned…
Art doesn’t have to expensive and be creative …it’s in the eye of the beholder after all!!

art in the kitchen…

So, here’s another room I got some work done in this summer…my kitchen walls are white…I dig a sterile kitchen, but I wanted something on the walls to add a little umph…
I bought the book “Food Rules” at Anthropologie months ago, I didn’t buy it for a good read but for the illustrations…
Maira Kalman - Food Rules: An Eater's Manual
I had white mats cut for $4.50 each and bought frames at Wal-mart for $1.96…
Voila…

art around the house…

Ugh, do I have to start getting my s*#! together now that summer break  is over??  I have not transitioned well to say the least…

I’ve been slowly collecting “art” for a while now, I picked up a few more over the summer so I figured it was time to start hanging them up…

I will say I don’t quite get art, I just buy what I like…especially if the price is right…and, there is good looking, inexpensive, original art to be found at estate sales & thrift stores…

I’ve never really hung much on the walls of my other homes so I’m shocked at what a difference in the feel of the room…

These are a few of my favorites…
