Had this past Friday off. Oh my. It was wonderful. My plans for the day? Waking up. Getting a massive coffee and hittin' the train. (Why doesn't that sound the same as Hittin' the Road?)
The North Bound 1 Train took me to a place that I love. A place where I breathe a little easier. A place that reminds me of home...
Of course I'm talking about the Super Target in the Bronx.
I spent hours quietly mingling down the isles of the Target. It was tremendously nice. Maybe it's the colorful variety at Target or even the signing of a new apartment lease. But I'm suddenly in the mood to revamp.
Problem/Dissatisfied Area: Wall space above my bed
Materials: Scrapbooking paper, flat black spray paint, photographs (already matted and framed), a goofy fun clock
Method to the Madness: See below...
This started out as a gold framed mirror. Bla. I used flat black spray paint and some gold embellished scrap book paper to perk it up.
I recently accumulated a few framed pieces of photography. Love the photography that went into the above frame, but the birch wood Pottery Barn frame wasn't working. With a few coats of bright yellow enamel paint, I was headed in the right direction.
Sidenote: Its the same shade of glossy yellow that I painted this other mirror of mine. See above.
Final look it well on its way.
(A lot going on, I realize)
Gave the big mat and frame in the middle a face lift by replacing an unremarkable photo with quirky red and white patterned paper.
Have a new headboard (Can day beads really have headboards) canvas covered in Ikea fabric.
One of my favorite things: Fabric stretched and stapled onto a frame, canvas, piece of wood...
And I didn't stop here. More revamping to come!
