Photo Booth Strips As Art
Is it really Thursday night already? Where did this week go? *shakes head*
Well, anyway. It’s time to show you the progress we’ve made on our second floor bathroom, which henceforth will be known as the Very Green Bathroom.
This was the best shot I could get of this tiny bathroom that gets no natural light. Will somebody just give me a DSLR camera with a wide angle lens? Oh, you will? How sweet! Wait, you were just kidding? Don’t do that to a pregnant lady. You know, hormones. Actually, I have no pregnancy hormones. I don’t feel pregnant except for the monkey dancing in my belly and the fact that my stomach sticks out. I guess I should be grateful…
And are you sick of Tala the little cat yet? She just manages to find her way in 83% of the photos I take of this house. That’s a real statistic, by the way.
Back to the point! The light (grabbed at William Sonoma Outlet for 1/2 of retail price) is installed and it looks really great:
When we finished painting the Very Green Bathroom, we thought the green color was a little strong, but the simple light, the black mirror, and the gray and white curtain really tempered the green color and it all looks great…. in person. You’re welcome to visit if you want.
Next on the to-do list for the Very Green Bathroom is accessories, including art.
When I posted our plans and discussed my idea for some kind of photo strip art for the wall, our awesome friend Tawny wrote this comment:
Don’t you think that’s just the cleverest idea, ever? That Tawny is a clever one. Of course – she went to law school, for pete’s sake.
At our wedding, we had a photo booth. It was a last-minute addition to the reception and it was the best thing ever. Our wedding memory book has lots of fun photo strips of our guests with their messages scribbled on white pages. We love to look through it and remember our great night.
After reading Tawny’s comment, I looked through our book and found two photo strips of just us – me and Nick. Then we hit up a photo booth in town, along with my swollen belly. Our collection currently looks like this (scanned on our printer):
When we watched the movie “The Jones” a month ago, I loved these huge blown-up photo strips. This was when I thought about using photo strips as art in our home… there’s something just nostalgic and fun about them.
In case you care, “The Jones” is a not-bad movie. Perfect for a lazy summer morning. Ah, I miss those already. Nick went back to work just last Monday and I’ve been hustling since then trying to write as much as I can (SEO article writing is what I do now). Working at home is an interesting change… and it hasn’t given me any extra time to work on the house. Sigh.
