In the planning stages of the remodel, we had an ‘extra’ area that needed to be used. My very first instinct was: Sitting area.
It was open, smallish and to the side of the front doors and the side of the kitchen.
And hey, one of my favorite hobbies is sitting.
Not really, but it sounds good.
I knew I wanted swivel chairs. Because I’m 5 going on 11. And it afforded the sitting area to fully take in the kitchen and family room via the swivel.
Plus, I’m 5 going on 11.
This lovely little sitting area was just right, but it had a LARGE blank wall.
And we can’t have that.
It needed something big.
Something with a wet nose.
It needed Cocoa X 250%.
While perusing pinterest months ago I spotted a tutorial on making a piece of art with a shower curtain; I was intrigued.
While I loved the Octopus art work, our good friends Don and Kelly who’d just remodeled their home had a lovely Octopus paining in their family room and I couldn’t do the same thing. Or near the same thing.
So, I searched for a boxer shower curtain and BAM. I found one.
We’re thrilled with our ‘expensive’ art piece.
(it’s simply a plywood frame that you staple the curtain onto)
The best part is, if we grow tired of seeing this colorful Cocoa in a few years, it’s easy to change it up.
But really, who would get tired of looking at THAT FACE?
I added a new feeder to this front window and it’s busy with cardinals, blue jays and wood peckers. All.day.long.
We couldn’t be happier with how it came together.
