You all know I would trade my vital organs for Restoration Hardware, right? Glad we’re clear on that.
Something about that style just pulls me in. It’s rustic, and quirky, and unique, but traditional, and dark, but neutral and balanced. I love it. My eyes could eat it all up.
I love the idea of gold framed antique documents, like these manuscripts from RH.
Instead of manuscripts, I wanted my antique documents to be more meaningful. I wanted them to be Leonardo Da Vinci sketches of flying machines. I’m a pilot, and aviation is my love song. Good old Leo puts my feelings in words better than I can:
“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
-Leonardo Da Vinci
I had these frames to fit the prints, which I tagged gold using Krylon Metallic Gold.
After the spray paint was dry, it was as easy as putting the picture in and hanging it up. Quite the easy art project. On the DIY scale, it’s the level of finger painting.
I wasn’t able to get amazing pictures. It’s barely light when I leave for work in the morning, and dark when I get home. The ISO had to be cranked up, so please excuse the noise. Kthx.
What’s the very easiest art project you’ve ever done?
