Painting some furniture, maybe dying some couch cushions, definitely updating the mantel.
It's looked about like this since I redid it last year.
My plan was to use some larger art to take advantage of the high ceilings and to draw the eye up.
I know that other bloggers have had some awesome results by ordering black and white prints from Staples. Oversized prints called Engineer Prints.
I thought this really awesome picture of T and I from a photo shoot before we left Illinois would be amazing.
I ordered it.
I knew it might not be great quality.
Oh people of blogland, this is worse than just bad quality.
I should have known when I got an email from Staples letting me know that the Engineering prints aren't specifically for photos.
Are you ready?
ARE YOU READY?!?!?!
It looks like an inkblot test!
Being further away doesn't really help.
Mr. T has some big white splotches on his face...
.....I've got some streaks through my face.
I don't know if their printer was jacked up or what.
I couldn't be disappointed in the store though, so I told them it was fine, the base of a mixed media art piece and that it was exactly what I wanted.
Anyone want a really bizarre portrait of my husband and I? Free to a good home!
Oooh, perhaps I should add it to my "Just Because I Love You" Giveaway.
It's over, and the winner is Myranda from Pretty Living PDX
Congratulations Myranda! Don't be surprised if your package comes wrapped in a scary oversize inkblot test of my face!
