You know how we have things around the house that are necessary (but not pretty to look at) like the a/c thermostat, doorbell chime box, and phone jacks? Well, I try to disguise them when I can and this phone jack was in plain sight and it was time I do something about it.
|Not very pretty to look at.|
|I've had this frame forever. I like that it has a space behind it for the phone jack to kind of fit into.|
|I left the old picture in there, and just put this one on top.|
|So much better now! I might even paint that cord the same color as the wall to disguise it a little more. :)|
The print I used in the frame was one of these Chihuly cards. Dale Chihuly is an artist and he does these beautiful hand blown glass sculptures. When we were in Vegas, the hotel we stayed at had a huge ceiling sculpture in the lobby that was made by Mr. Chihuly. It had the most beautiful glass flowers. Our hotel also had a Chihuly shop and they sold all kinds of things. I bought this package of cards knowing I'd probably frame a few.
|It came with lots of different cards, each portraying a picture of a glass sculpture he did for an exhibit called "Chihuly Over Venice" where his pieces were displayed over the canals in Venice. So pretty!|
|You can see here how they're actually cards. They were the perfect size for framing.|
