Hallway Art

Our hallway is very broken up with doors, small walls and stairs. There’s a small section of wall that you can see when you walk in the door, and it was asking for some art! My parents gave us these awesome bicycle prints, they have been in our family for years. We had some super old Ikea frames that were actually made of wood, yes, that’s how old they were. So I purchased some mat board from Michaels and cut them to fit into the frames and just like that we added some character to the space.

The cabinet below was custom made from scraps of wood and then painted with some extra paint we had from our renovations. I didn’t want to have a cabinet in the hallway, but we had no choice, unfortunately the hallway was the only spot the internet could be installed in our place. So we built this super shallow cabinet to house the wireless router and all the cables, it also gives us a little extra storage.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to the best mom ever. Love you always.

This year, I gave my mom the photograph below that I scanned, fixed up in photoshop, printed as an 8×10 and framed.

Toy Collection Display

So i’ve had to find a temporary solution to display my toy collection from when I was a kid, mixed with some current stuff. I was going to put it in a Printers Tray, as you saw I was hunting for in a previous post, but then I saw this shadow box frame on sale and thought it would work just perfectly until I find exactly what i’m looking for. All I had to do was open it up, throw in all the toys and I was done! It adds a fun colourful touch to a small nook area on my wall.
