After mulling things over, I decided to try a ‘test run’, or mini version of my brainstorm in the photo studio.
Every entry could use a place to hang stuff, and a chair to sit on. So being a fanatic of all things woodsy, this idea came together much like a puzzle.
First went up one old crate for a cubby. Then the old fence signs were just eyeballed and installed with screws, directly into the wall.
After the fun quilted map message centre setup last week, I wanted an excuse to play around again anyway!
So, once the main components were hung, the REAL fun started.
My vision is hanging a bunch of rustic signs vertically, bouncing their heights. Random screws are all over the place, to hang coats, keys and purses. And maybe even a bike helmut or two.
Where to find the stencils:
Once the main components go up, a balancing act of sorts is next. The bowl was a little bare, so up went the oil funnel to break it up.
And on it went.
Some things go up, other things get pulled down. I just play until I like what I see.
I could also totally see this on a bathroom wall with clean towels in those crates, and the ones being used hanging. I really like Miss Mustard Seed’s Furniture Wax – Amazon affiliate link on the old wood, so your fabrics are protected.
I quite enjoyed this ‘trial’, and will definitely be borrowing some of these elements for the real deal soon! And here’s hoping a few of these ideas also inspired you.
