Just in case you are wondering what we are wearing here at the farm…..
….I just bought a jumpsuit.
I’m a little all about myself right now.
And I’m not sure if jumpsuit is what it’s called any more or if it’s are so 2013 or if people who have children in high school should even be seen at the mall in a jumpsuit or stirrup pants….
…..because I don’t care.
I walked out of the dressing room yesterday at New York & Company looking a little like Ginger from Gilligan’s Island sans the height and the red hair and the palm trees and told myself how amazing I was….
…..and proceeded to promenade around the store like I owned the entire chain.
And if you were there. If you happened to be in the New York & Company store yesterday at the mall around 4:00pm….I’m sorry about the dance next to the clearance rack when I found the pair of cork wedges.
Blame it on the jumpsuit.
And now back to our regularly scheduled post.
When I was styling the built-in wall at the Cape house….I had one over-riding theme.
It’s seriously one of my favorite words.
Or…..if you are politically correct….bargain sensitive.
I mean….after all I had an entire wall to fill up on a budget.
So I created inexpensive wall art. I turned simple, everyday into objects d’art that cost me under $5.00 to make and (more importantly) took up extra space on the wall.
And here’s how I did it.
Spoiler alert: This idea is so easy and you’ve probably already thought of it and have filled your walls with your own artwork since 1999. If so…..please refer back to the beginning of the post….
….the jumpsuit story was just for you.
wood plaques (you can find these at the craft store)
random bargain sensitive object
Here’s a few finished pieces.
I know what you are thinking.
Even though the art is hanging in the beach house….
….this artwork belongs in the contemporary museum of art.
But I’d have to “draw the line” at that.
PS I’m wearing the jumpsuit to Haven (the blogging conference) and I’ll post pictures later!
