I fell in love with this print from Keep Calm Gallery. I ignored the fact that it cost way too much and the shipping from England was atrocious. I just ordered it, and pretended that the cost in pounds was the cost in dollars.
I intended it to be in our entryway, but to do that would mean that I had to redo everything else in the entryway. So I gave up on that idea because all of my redoing money had already gone to the print itself, and decided to build my scraproom around it. Because our office/scraproom is right off the entry, I thought that it should have a more office look. You know, we want people to come in and think we are smart folks who sit around and do officious stuff all day. Is officious even a word?
Anyhow, I had the print framed, stuck it in the middle of the big office wall and went to town redoing the bookshelves. I still have a few details to work on, like putting metal labels on my magazine holders, but I'm pretty happy with it. Now I just need to finish the rest of the room!
|This is the view from the entryway. That little hint of red is Anna's desk, which will be painted soon. I'm thinking chalkboard paint.|
|I typed up all the labels.|
|These jars were left over from the old decor, and I just filled them with extras I had laying around.|
