I love my lush, plush, long-haired Mongolian lamb pillow from West Elm! It's been with me for about five years. I keep it in my bedroom to insure its safety from spilled drinks, the cat, the humans and the floor. Yep, I love this pillow! So I was running my fingers through it one night, as I often do, and I was thinking about how cool it would be to have a wall like this. Well, of course, all things are possible in the mini world. I removed the back from the Lekman box and taped the pillow case to the box and immediately loved it. I want my own shaggy wall!
The wood grain paper is from Michael's. I tinted the window with a yellow notebook divider. The rug is a gift bag. I made the pendants using needle craft grids and lined them with paper. The table lamp base is the lid to a perfume bottle. The African mask is a key chain mounted on a bamboo coaster and the African statute is a chess piece from my hub's collection. The large vases are pen parts from Michael's (they have a great assortment and I bought a bunch of these, so you'll be seeing these often because I love big vases). The flowers are from the yard. The side table is a candle holder from the thrift store and the coffee tables are painted wooden cubes with acrylic tops. The fireplace crystals are seed beads. The mounted boxes are part of a set from minisx2. The sofa and pillows are by me and the accessories are craft store finds.
While I was working on this post, my scene was violently disrupted by an earthquake (my big clumsy husband!) Here are shots of the aftermath. This had to be a 7.5 on the Richter scale! It could have been so much worse, but luckily I had puttied most of the items in place so I could take the box outside for pictures.
|I'm so glad I made a ledge at the bottom of the fireplace!|
Until next time, Beany.
Have a great and safe July 4th!
I love the mix of the modern with an ethnic vibe! The fireplace is great!. The shaggy wall reminds me of the movie "Get Him to the Greek", but much nicer!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I haven't seen the movie, but I will accept the compliment! I love the global thang!Delete
The scene was beautiful! I want it to be the same after the 'earthquake'. ;)ReplyDelete
Thanks Eliana, yes I was able to get everything back in order and told my husband to STAY AWAY!Delete
I like...great mix of patterns and colors. Hope there are no aftershocks from the "earthquake" xxReplyDelete
Thank you Jazzi! No aftershocks because the "earthquake" had to stay on his side of the room!Delete
This is so cool! IT IS SO INTERESTING AND NEW. I LOVE THE BACK WALL OF THE SOFA AND YOUR FIRE PLACE. SOOOOOOOOOOO CLEVER!ReplyDelete
Thank you Neomi and welcome! I love that we can play with ideas here! I'm just having fun!ReplyDelete
That fireplace is sooo cool. Again with the pen parts, I ADORE those large vases. I have missed those at Michaels, I will be hunting for them next visit. The pendants are so creative and look simply fab. Great job on the sofa too. Love love love it all!ReplyDelete
Thank you, thank you! I bought soooo many of those pens in different colors and patterns, because I have no self control!ReplyDelete
