I have ideas (so many ideas) for David's and Aubri's room. Scott hung their coat/backpack hooks (Bach Garment Holders, actually) last weekend (thank you, babes). These nifty hooks (which were spotlighted on Apartment Therapy years ago) have been in the basement waiting to be used. We have a couple hung by the front door already - I loved the design so much that I bought extra.
I plan to hang 2 Lil Davinci Art Cabinets above the hooks for the kiddos' keepsake masterpieces. These frames hold up to 100 pieces of art while displaying the current masterpiece. Emi has one and we have collected her artwork through the years. It's a great way to keep the really special pieces of art in one place (although we do still have an acid-free binder or 2 with other art pieces of Emi's).
I also plan to create a baseball themed alphabet painting and a distressed wood sign with the words from "You Are My Sunshine". (That's a favorite song to sing at bedtime.)
We painted the walls of the Gathering Room many years ago after texturizing the walls and we were so pleased with the outcome, we haven't hung much up on the walls since. I have 2 pieces of filipino art that my mom gave me on one wall.
And a wrought iron book shelf above the digital piano on the opposite wall...
We have a big blank wall above our bar that needs something...
|My bar looks like it needs a good polishing...noted!|
And I was thinking of making a big bold graphic print like this to hang:
|LOVE this! I would probably use a canvas vice plywood so I could easily change it out (not that I would)...|
|This is where the "floor show" happens on daily basis...|
|We've added a few photos and framed art up there since this picture was posted almost 2 years ago.|
Any suggestions for the quote above the bar?*
*I heard a CSNY song that might be a candidate (Wasted on the Way) but I'm open to ideas.
