walk the line

we finally made a couple more tweaks to the master bedroom.  and i say we intentionally, as i've recruited the hubs to help get the show on the road.

in fact it was he who gave a second skin to the spashy punch of artwork we've added to the room.  originally these canvases were the set i'd made for the living room....but they're now enjoying a new life as the cuppa key lime juice we're drinking in every morning as we wake up.  they're literally the same key lime colored spray paint, that the hubs combined with white paint [obv] for a new much crisper look. in person you can still see the multitude of tiny drips on the canvas tops....which are now the sides....that i liked so much on the original version that i did.

and i think i love them.  nay, i know i love them.

i give full credit to the hubs for the off-center placement and handiwork....which i then ran with.  like literally ran around as an excited puppy might do, grabbing decor to pair with the new wall hangings.

and i ended up with this arrangement.  very happy, am i.  

the chair is one of two i'd bought on overstock a while ago when i began to merge into bedroom scheme 2: glorified modified.  the silver pillow's also been around a few months, courtesy of tj maxx.  the branch is a piece of curly willow i was given by a friend [thank you j!] and the vase is a pottery barn outlet find for the price of $11, or in other words, a price so cheap i would have to be pre-registered at the loony bin if i were to pass it up.  

the table is a beat up ole gal i bought at a garage sale many moons ago, for $8.  i love the diamond detailing and even the old handle on it....and while the surface scratches have multiplied + intensified over the years and i talk + talk of painting it, for some reason i love the imperfection and the age of it too much to paint it perfect.  even though sometimes she begs me for a lovely new coat of dove gray to adorn her with.

last but not least, i'm loving the peek-a-boo ikea artichoke complementing the new arrangement from the bathroom next door. another little touch of mod + organic paired with the linear impact of the art.  

even H is enjoying hanging with the new group.

what do you think....did my original 'art' do it for ya or do you prefer round two, husband edition?  ie....WHO WINS?
