It’s sort of strange, really. I sat down to be all hey, up goes another frame!, and then I realized we’ve never actually written about our frames in the first place. I think.
And then I remembered we sort of mentioned it back in the day for our very first house tour. Which, by the way, holy ships!, how our home has evolved! Not being one known for getting right to the point, I’m trying to say that we’ve added another floating frame to our bathroom wall of photo strips:
Over the last few years since the original tour was posted, we’ve received the random email asking where we get the frames (JoAnn’s) and where we find the booths (our favorites in Chicago are Quenchers, Charleston and any Renegade pop-up). And you’ll notice that while they used to be black, we sprayed them white during our bathroom’s umpteenth color transition.
During a recent weeding of unnecessary office items, I realized we had one more black floating frame. We didn’t need it for the studio-to-be, so I sprayed it down and filled it with a handful of strips that’ve been stashed for far too long. (On a side note, we’ve only ever seem them in black, and online searches turned up too-expensive results.) The next day, I got an email from West Elm boasting their frame sale:
We don’t need another – we’re up to total of 7, but isn’t that how it always goes? A day late, of course.
Unexpected bathroom art makes us happy (the kitchen’s a close second), and since we keep that door closed at all times (see why, right here), it’s nice to not have to stare at our goofy faces in, say, the living room. No, we’d much rather reserve that for the kiddos.
How do you stash your booth strips?
