I’m lucky a gal. When I go “home,” I actually get to go back to my childhood home.
Yep, I grew up on a ranch. Cows, hay fields and lots of memories.
My stepmom rescued these 2 old tractor seats and gave them new life as wall art.
The metal flowers came off of a piece of art my stepmom found at Kohl’s – on deep clearance, of course.
She liked the flowers, but said they were attached to a weird, tacky piece of tile.
She hung them on an exterior wall, above the barbecue, and had instant, one-of-a-kind wall art.
Now they are completely unique works of art! Love it!
I realize this isn’t everyone’s style of decor. But what I appreciate the most about my stepmom is that she can see the beauty in the unexpected and turn the ordinary – even a castoff – into something gorgeous.
Now, is there a moral to this story besides decorate however makes you happy?
Hmmm. Yes, yes, I think there is.
Do not pass up tacky wall art that’s on clearance. You never know what you might create with it.
Words to live by.
