My family room project (first mentioned here) has been stalled out as we wait for my NEW COUCH! I’ll share more about that later, but let me just warn you…don’t put too much faith in shipping company estimates that send you in a panic to get rid of your old furniture…or you just might spend 2 1/2 weeks with NO furniture!
So the goal for my family room was to be a little more “fun & funky” than is my normal modus operandi. If it were up to my husband and/or children, the whole room would look like the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. Or a Tardis. Or a wood-elf lodge.
I’m already compromising by including Legos in the room (you can see my IKEA hack display shelf here)….but it’s NOT going to be a Tardis room! However, I am trying to work with a bit of a theme, and I call it:
Something for him (husband), something for them (kids), and something for me (me!).
With that in mind, I worked on a little wall art, loosely inspired by the Ballard Designs Pruvost plaque. I’ve loved the shape of it for.ev.er. So I used some scrap plywood to make a similar-shaped sign, which is supposed to look like an ooooooollllllddd (that’s the vintage part) inn sign.
I made the white one first, but then I wasn’t sure if it went in the room as well as I wanted…so then I made the wood one.
So how about an opinion? Which one do YOU like better??
And then a question: are you geeky enough to know what the “Green Dragon Inn” comes from??
If you want to cheat, the answer is here.
Note: I have been getting some questions lately that I can’t respond to because they come from “No-Reply Bloggers!” If you’ve asked me a question and I have answered, please try again, but include an e-mail address!
