Bob Marley....One Love

Bob Marley!  What can I say?  When my family gets together, he's one of the few musical artists that we can all agree on.  No matter what the music preference or the age group, Marley always works.  My son's walls are covered in posters and there are quite a few Marley posters.  So, I got the idea to do a masculine feeling room.....a clean room (which WAS NOT inspired by my son's room!) 




I used a mosaic tile technique on a photo that I downloaded.  There are websites that do this,
 but nooooo, I did it the hard way (well, not hard, but time consuming.)  I wish his left eye had been in one tile, but I was measuring and cutting from the back and really didn't want to do it over.










 
The goods:  The chairs and books are from Hobby Lobby.  The flooring is a vinyl tile.  The table is a piece of acrylic and a napkin ring from Crate & Barrel.  The bicycles are paper clips from World Market.  The Korean masks are magnets from a Korean store.  The succulents in the white containers are from Minnie Kitchen's Etsy shop (I HAD to have them!)  Flat screen is the backside of a make-up container sitting on an easel from Michael's .  The large planters are made from mouthwash bottle caps, one I covered with craft yarn. The white tree is a branch painted white and the green tree is made from a plastic plant. The silver floor lamp is from the 99 Cents Store (and it never did work!  What can I expect for a buck?) Pillows by me.  One Love trinket was a key chain.  Other little accessories are craft store finds.

Thank you so much for following my blog and all the kind and encouraging comments!  I'm just so tickled!  It's nice to share with like minds!  Beany.
