The challenge…Meredith over at Meredith and the New Yorkie recently found this oversized frame – curbside in New York City – and asked Shaunna from Perfectly Imperfect and I (here at Blue Velvet Chair) if we had any DIY design ideas for it. What a fun challenge! Okay, it’s more a personal challenge than a competitive one, so maybe ‘upcycle design project’ is more appropriate.
I had a quick look around Meredith’s blog to see if I could get a feeling of her design aesthetic. Her living room gave me the ‘feeling’ – so now I want to provide her with a few ideas. Meredith, I see you posted that your mom has come up with a brilliant idea for you, but I’m still going to throw in my two cents – just because it was fun to try to come up with ideas for your NY space. I know moms rule…so I can’t wait to see what her idea is when you reveal it.
Look at Meredith’s beautiful view of NYC!
Where could she put the frame? On this wall in her kitchen?
Perhaps on one of these doors…
or this space above the adorable curbside table that she recently upcycled.
Meredith gets to choose the space, and below are the DIY ideas I’m submitting as back-up just in case Gwyneth (the Yorkie) finds more fabulous frames to upcycle. Here we go!
