Stuff I Made: Chicken Wire Catch-All

So, you know, I had those big plans to paint our bedroom white while Nekos was away. (White, by the way, is a huuuuge departure for us. We're more likely to paint a room electric pink than white.) But his plane's due to land any minute, and what he'll be coming home to instead to is a half-painted bedroom. Oh, and also to me and my open arms! I've missed my man. 

It's been all work and no play for me this last week. Which is why I haven't blogged in a few days. (Dear blog, I've missed you!) Having Tessa by myself + more freelance work than usual has left me in bad need of a girls' night and a date night and a pedicure and a number of cocktails all lined up on a bar. 

I did take some time this last day to make my chicken-wire visions a reality. Last night I Mod-Podged these clothespins while I was watching TV, and then I found myself spraypainting this enormous frame in the backyard at 11 p.m. like a crazy person. I was interested to see if the clothespins would work well with chicken wire, and they're the bomb diggity for hanging jewelry and everything else I had in mind. 

In this picture from earlier today it's just leaning against my closet doors, but now it's hanging above my vanity on a white wall. 

I'll put up some pics of the bedroom when it's done. Until then, have great weekends, you all!
