Those were Mike's old speakers, our new ones sit on the floor on the sides of the cabinet. There was no canvas's behind where they were, which I had to fix. This also happened right around the time that I had switched out the duvets on the futon so all the flowers in the room were gone. I consider my decorating pretty masculine however I needed a touch of the feminine so enter the cherry blossoms that I found at a great antique store while visiting my friend Christy in Florida a few years ago. This seller was leaving the antique business and was selling everything at slashed prices. The cherry blossoms were originally gold, and someone had painted them cream. After I bought them and got them home in one piece I painted them teal to go with my apartment at the time, they were never hung though so I found them in their teal glory.
I had a hard time deciding what color to paint them, should they be gray like the walls, cream, brown or blue like the kitchen? So I asked Mike and he liked them brown. He suggested that I spray paint them due to all the nooks and crannies however one day I was bored and it was snowing and I had brown paint...
So I piled up some hot glue to make bases on the back and then I used that command velco tape to connect them to the canvas. I think it adds just the right amount of something. I realized that I had never hung these up the whole time that I had have them which has been around three years now I figured if you love something it really should be up.
On the right side there is the globe that I painted with chalkboard paint. I will post a tutorial on it soon.
