I went out thrifting in Temecula this weekend and picked up a few small things – one being this ambiguously sexed reclining nude watercolor addition to my collection of thrift store art.
I love the simple black frame and washy background as well as the delicate rendering. I installed it on the wainscoting that encircles the den in order to balance out the little vignette happening on the tension pole wall unit. Ooooh vignette layering, I’m feeling so fancy!
The Boy freaked out when I started hammering a nail in the paneling…he was like “what are you DOING! You can’t make HOLES in the wainscoting”. Which sounded like the silliest thing to yell..wainscoting. What a weird word.
There are all sorts of giant knots and ragged holes in the crappy pine paneling so this little finish nail isn’t our biggest worry. He’s right though – I tend to take down and move paintings almost every week. I do make and patch a lot of holes.
It takes courage to be fabulous…or to make your house look like swiss cheese.
