Day 842's finished project


Well, we chose neither A nor B for the architecture prints in the living room. I couldn't commit to either, so when Wes suggested we order another set (we bought them on our honeymoon in Charleston, and I didn't remember where -- but he did), I said sold! and headed to Target for two more frames.


I finally made use of some grasscloth that was leftover from a project I helped with when I was an intern (3 years ago!). I just cut it to fit, and left the mats in tact in case we ever want to use them for something else. But for now, I'm happy to have something to cross off the proverbial list. Did you do anything productive this weekend?

Looks great. Good idea using the grass cloth. I need to get on some framing projects as well. Are the frames black? I think so.

It looks great. We actually changed our kitchen lighting and now I can see what I am doing!

Sarah said...

They look great, Jen! Perfect compromise. And even better that it was Wes' suggestion:) I am such a sucker for a symmetrical grid of similiar prints. I put up the rest of the fall decor this weekend, yay!

It looks great. I like the 6 together.

I finished putting our room back together after wainscoting and putting up something new in our bedroom. Nothing too exciting or tiring, which is nice. =)

Good Choice! Looks great.

I love the 6, it fills the space up and is so eye catching-a conversation piece!
Can I ask you which store in Charleston you got them at? I am a College of Charleston Alum and go back often-and of course, shop!

Nothing productive at all here- but I just LOVE what you did with the prints! They look great over your sofa, and the grasscloth mats are such a great idea!

Dina,
We got the prints at The Preservation Society of Charleston Gift Shop. They aren't old or anything, just reproduction prints. They come in packs of 4 for $60 I think.

Whoo hoo, that was the option C that I suggested!
I think the layout of the prints really fills the space perfectly.

Enjoy your new decor.
