Isn't this a lovely piece of art?
I am the owner of this spectacle.
I bought it from G.W.
because it was cheap and because
I own this spectacle, as well.
This is the desk area in my kitchen.
It's where my peeps do their homework
and draw masterpieces.
Let me just say,
it took a lot of guts to show this to you.
a multiplication table,
corbels for the island,
and a brown cobra,
smack dab in the middle of it all.
Why a builder,
or previous homeowner,
would install an outlet in the middle of a wall,
I have no idea.
Well, it's there,
along with a slice of a 20-year old, tree limb.
Something had to be done with this eyesore
and the brown cord cover was not hiding a thing.
I took that gold masterpiece,
the one you were eyeing,
spray painted it bronze,
added a cork board, some burlap,
charmed the cobra,
and hung it in it's new home.
My solution to avoiding the
cost of moving the outlet.
Now the desk is clean and organized,
for at least 2 more minutes.
I also made these custom push pins.
Using an old atlas,
I cut out the names of places my peeps have traveled,
along with long push pins,
to clear, vase filler stones.
My attempt to sublimely remind them
that they actually have a good time when they leave the comfort of their home.
We don't call our peeps "homer's" for nothing.
You must get on over to see
There are some seriously creative people reusing items like you wouldn't believe!
