On a recent trip to Asheville, NC a friend and I were on our way back to the car, ready to head home, and I just couldn’t resist stopping in one last shop.
Green Designs handcrafted wood furnishings. And of course, there in a back corner, was a piece calling my name. What used to be my studio is slowly becoming our music room. It needs hard furnishings for musicians to sit on and have freedom of movement. And so, my first piece of ART furniture!!!!
Sturdy enough to last through the abuse it will surely suffer. I never want to live in a house that can’t handle rowdy kids. Of course I blame lots of the scraped up floors and banged up furniture on the kids, but a lot of it is me. I’m clumsy. I’ll admit it. At some point the room will come together and I’ll show you more pictures.
For now I’ll just show off the only other project I’ve finishes in the room so far. I designed these patterns and had them printed at Spoonflower. It’s just peel and stick wallpaper. I cut chair rail molding and glued it together in frames, stuck them on top of the wallpaper with command velcro strips, and screwed the ukulele pegs into the wall.
The last two are kaleidoscope prints based on pictures of my french horn’s pipes.
