We turned to the pallet when we needed a way to display artwork and photos temporarily while we decide where they'll go on the walls. It was a joint effort, this project, I strenuously turned the pages of the magazine and found this exact project on it's pages and brought it to Tony to get
In my defence, I did remove some of the boards off the pallets. Not an easy task, but you get to work out some frustrations with the hammer!!
Tone basically did all the work and I held boards in place (and supervised!) A very important job! And here's the end result, minus some photos and artworks so you could actually see the thing!
We used the nail plates that builders use to join trusses etc. (Don't know their technical name) This helped us get the industrial/rustic look we were after and joined some pieces together to get the height we wanted. We have high ceilings, plus it's a huge room so we needed something to scale.
Here's a couple of closeup's of some artwork I love. This is a pencil drawing of San Francisco by Don Davey (I think) which I got from a second-hand store. I visited this wonderful city in 2003 and this is a reminder of my time there!
And this print is of Salamanca Place in Hobart, Tasmania where very close by I was proposed to by the one and only Tony on my 30th birthday while weekending there! Another nice reminder of life's memorable moments!
If you like the little 'Come what may and Love it' art, you can print your very own here for free!! There's heaps of other cool one's too in fantastic bright colors!
How do you display your artwork and photos in your home? Do you hang them on the walls or in stand up frames? Or do you have something similar to our pallet displayer? I'd love to hear about it!
Hope you're having a wonderful day!!
