If you follow me on Instagram (RESTLESSRISA_RISABAKER), you know that my husband and I recently installed a faux brick wall, using faux brick panels from Lowes. I will share the full tutorial on that in a few days. Today, I wanted to share the before and after of my, craft room turned office, wall. You won't believe where I picked up all the pieces I used to style the space!
This is the finished product.
Here are two shots from before… Charming? No.
The brick is now on the wall where the armoire was.
I wanted the space to feel fresh and clean. I wanted to use my favorite color:
I wanted to create my own graphic art out of a $3 canvas from Hobby Lobby.
I wanted to use real sliced agate.
I mounted my agate slices in a $1 thrifted frame, using epoxy from the hardware store.
I had to display that sweet little $1 thrifted Dutch clog / pencil holder,
as a shout out to my 1/4 Dutch heritage.
A sculpture my grandma gave me years ago.
My grandma loved sculpture. Her house was always full of sculptures.
I miss her.
A handmade piece of water color art, in a $2 thrifted frame, and $1 thrifted mat.
Thrifted $3 lamp, which I still may paint gold.
This one is giving me grief, but I am leaning towards gold.
Now to decide... gold and white, gold and black, all gold???
Gold leaf, gold spray paint, liquid gold leaf...
Horse head $24 from Homegoods.
Mounted on a frame my in-laws gave me.
I painted the backing with blue and green craft paint
I mixed together to look a little marbled.
I know you want a closeup of the horse head…
A thrifted oil painting. I think I paid $3.
My beloved agate paper weight.
Polka-dot stationary box underneath a silver jewelry box.
All you ladies know what that little blue box is… amiright?
Everything sitting in a $1 thrifted tray.
I love the depth and scale of everything on the wall.
I love it from every angle.
Did I mention I painted the table I already had?
The table was a gift from a fabulous girlfriend.
This space makes me SO happy now!
It feels fresh and clean.
Do you want a tutorial on any of the art pieces?
Let me know.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a Happy and Creative Day!
