Inspired by this find on the world wide web, I got in gear this morning to create an interesting accent wall for our living room/ We got up and went to Lowe's were we had a very easy time picking our wall color for the accent wall and after, we went to Michel's for thumbtacks and string.
I like to paint walls. It is very soothing and even better whilst listening to a harry Potter book on CD. After the paint dried I started to create a tree with the thumbtacks and the string. My thumb and index finger are red and almost swollen now, but the end result is quite cool, if I can say so myself : ). In addition I tacked birds that I had sewn a while back to the branches. Now the question is, will the cats leave thumbtacks and strings alone? or will we come home one day to a mess of string and birds? Who cares???!!! For now it's just fun and we are very much enjoying the new look!
