Along with the crib coming down in Bugger's room, some of the artwork has just not been working in there either and it is time to change things up. I had (what I thought) was a good idea with a picture/postcard collage when he was born, but the frames never worked, and it's been half up, half down for months. So I was thinking about the skateboards we have and something cool I could do with them. . . Here is where we ended up. I gave them to my Dad and said I wanted them to be able to hang on the wall. I love to give a detailed brief. haha. He didn't need details. He knew just what to do. I couldn't love it more. It's simple, functional, industrial. It's using something existing and transforming it. My favorite approach. I also love that the boards face different ways so it reads all the way around, and isn't meant to be one way, or the other. I think it is the perfect piece for a growing boy (who will start pre-school this week! I CAN'T believe it. My baby is growing up. . . but more on that later), and definitely doesn't put him in a box as it sits opposite his instrument rack and shelves full of cars and books. Happy New Year everybody!
