When I first moved into my apartment back in August, I realized that with all the little treasures I had collected over the years, I didn't have anything substantial enough to put up on my walls. The biggest problem was that one large empty space over the couches. I had a few pieces here and there, but they just weren't working. So instead of going out and buying expensive wall art, I decided to take measures into my own hands and create my own art- something that had personal meaning to me and that my guests would enjoy as much as I would.
While I was visiting the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, I noticed in one of the show rooms rows of fabric hung over twine and held up with clothes pins. It looked really beautiful even though it probably served more as a functional piece than an aesthetic one (which is hardly the kind of thing most people would remember from their trip to a world famous design center... but I suppose that's the kind of thing that stands out to me!) And I thought it would be a wonderful idea to string up some of my own things... so that's exactly what I did.
This is so easy to do! All you need is some twine, clothes pins, nails, a hammer and some pretty images that bring you joy. Tie each end of the twine to nails hung adjacent from one another, then start pinning away! I decided to take Polaroids with my friends and use them as my art! They love coming over and seeing themselves up on my wall.
