First off, thanks to my sweetie for the new site design. His original photography, keen eye for color and html talent have really spiffed things up around here.
So since we have new digs here at repurpose, I got to thinking about our actual dwelling place. We moved in just under a year ago and have been remodeling, painting, and rearranging ever since. It seems like an endless process and if I am at all like my mother, it will be. She is constantly updating and changing her home. That is what keeps it fresh and new. Some people buy a new seasonal wardrobe, but in my family you buy paint and tile.
One of the best things we've done is on one of our living room walls. B saw a similar idea in a magazine and we adapted it for our needs. It is actually quite simple, but makes a major impact on our huge walls, which are 17 feet high.
It is thrifted frames (most cost between $2- $5) and fabric from Kaffe Fasset, who is one of my favorite designers.
