I’m making a huge wall art piece out of these $2 tin signs I bought at Michaels.
I don’t feel like I’m making much work progress on my house, especially when people ask me. Decorating on top of keeping it clean is just too much for me. LOL. I have never been particularly DIY about home stuff (hanging pictures, shelving, building stuff). So, I always have to rely on William to help me. If it’s not simple and basic, I usually don’t attempt it, but I’m trying to break through that.
99¢ sign I purchased at a local store called Misc Trading Company.
Here’s a couple prints I picked up at IKEA and Tuesday Morning.
I have been picking up pieces here and there. I want to do my living room in all typography! I guess I must be onto something cause I recently saw Target had a typography home section too. Anyway, I want to make it cool and not cheesy. Type is very much my thing and I want to embrace it. I think I have what it takes to make it look cool, it’s just taking a while to visualize the setup. I have a very large living room with a lot of open space.
Here’s a vintage metal O (I think it went with a Chevron sign) that I picked up at here in Fresno. I had it resting next to a mirror and noticed that it looked really cool when you made the middle of the O a mirror. I like it do you?
Picking up lots of letters and numbers in different sizes and shapes as I find them.
Wanted to share with you a few of the type pieces I have picked up and am building upon. Sorry about the picture quality. I only get around to blogging at night. It’s going to take a while longer, but I guess any home DIY/decorating job doesn’t happen overnight. I’m just taking it one thing at a time!
A Chanel 5 advertisement I liked mixed in with a car medallion from The Recycling Ethic and a couple of pieces I picked up in Utah during the Snap Conference.
Until next time Swellions!
