Hey, remember this post about all of the new additions to my crafty to do list? Well, perhaps my favorite addition was this bicycle wheel organizer:
And it just so happens that I had recently found a bicycle wheel hanging out on the curb (this means the wheel was garbage, i.e., fair game). At the time, I had no clear vision of what I wanted to do with it, but I loved the clean, modern lines that are inherently “bicycle” and I knew that inspiration would eventually hit me.
So piggybacking on the idea of a bicycle wheel organizer, I decided to make a sort of bicycle wheel collage board for pictures.
And here it is:
I was originally set on attaching this to the wall and using it as a sort of lazy Susan to do list. However, when I started playing around with that idea, my interest began to wane, and I kept coming back to the idea of attaching black and white photos instead. And so I did.
As I’d seen before, I used wooden clothespins to attach the pictures. But since I was already using black and white photos, I wanted to add color somehow, so I painted the clothespins Tiffany blue.
That’s right, Rosario the paintbrush strikes again (twice in one week, y’all!).
Along with the pictures, I also attached our Save-the-Date and a love note from each of us.
I didn’t say these were long love notes. :)
I’m pretty pleased with the end result, not to mention the rest of the re-organizing I did with the top of the dresser.
And yes, Josh makes fun of me for it (and you can, too), but I love color coordinating books that are on display. I mean, it’s like free art, and I like to have it staged just so. Woe to the man who doesn’t put them back in the predetermined color order (I’m talking to you, Josh).
P.S. For those of you new to this blog, Josh is my husband.
Can’t you tell he’s a troublemaker?
