You can see inside the blank wall that is just calling out for a painting or two or three. I really need to work on that part of the restaurant, but am okay for now with the blank wall. I haven't found the perfect pieces of art and had planned on painting something this summer, but never got around to it since I was such a big bum. (I am not an artist, but may can do something abstract) I thought about having a couple of my students do something, but wasn't too impressed with their artwork when we were trying to decide how to paint the outside wall. (the plan was to go with an orange brick color with some blues and greens swirling through, but that got shut down fast - not by me - I liked it). Below is a close-up of the signage. This is copyrighted so no stealing of the pictures or design!!!
The reason the frame is wavy like this is because inside the restaurant, there are two frames this same size and two skinnier ones that are vertically on the wall. They are also this color pink and right now have a turquoise paper in the middle. Someday soon I will find some cork to put in the middle turning them into a bulletin board. I want the dark brown cork from the 70's but may have to get just generic cork and paint it dark brown. I haven't done it yet because I really want that chunky dark brown cork. Below is a picture of what the board looked like at Christmas covered with wrapping paper. To the right are the three shelves with knick-knacks I picked out to decorate the shelves. It's always fun to see the random things on the shelves from a wire pig to a green birdhouse to some over sized jacks. You can also see a green stool on the table. I have three of them, a dark green, a light green and a red, that I bought at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago to help give some height when we do buffets. They have really come in handy. I even used them when we served at Merry Market. (They were on clearance and were called garden stools.)
I told our fashion design teacher that I had a little lime green tree and a larger pink tree if she wanted to use it next year - we will see. LOL (since then I have also picked up small turquoise, purple and silver trees!! can't wait to decorate next year)
