I like adding a little of the unexpected to a space, so I’ve been wanting to add something, (art, words, etc) to the back of an often used door. I’ve been looking for the right item for the back of the guest room door but haven’t find one yet .
I recently ordered some hair products online and a cute card came with the packaging. On one side, there is a coupon for a future order, but on the other side there’s this fun note:
I found the pink frame on clearance for $2 at Target and just slipped the card inside. I used a 3M velcro command strip to hang it on the back door in the half bath. It’s a little friendly surprise when you shut the door.
This is the same bath where I recently added our framed mementos with another touch of pink.
Perhaps on lesser used doors, you could even hang larger pieces of art. Here’s some inspiration:
Have you displayed anything on the back of your doors? What other ways have you added a touch of the unexpected to a space?
Have you seen World Market’s extensive collection of handmade paper? It’s really beautiful! It’s a good weight/thickness as well, not flimsy at all. There are so many things you can do with it too. You could cut a piece to frame as art. I’ve also thought about using it as a backing for shelving (a book case or open cabinets).
The last time I was there, I picked up a roll of the large green poppy paper because of the great pink, gold, and green color combination.
Recently, I actually used a piece to wrap a magnum sized bottle of cava for an anniversary gift. Magnums don’t fit in regular wine gift bags so I had to come up with another method. I just rolled the paper around the bottle and taped strategically. I used a pink ribbon to tie around the neck of the bottle. You already know how I love wrapping gifts with a letter instead of a bow, so I draped a glittery letter from Michael’s here too.
I happened to find the perfect card to go with it! [Inside says: Celebrate! And enjoy many more happy years together Happy Anniversary]
Love the gold and the glitter – so cute!
I have enough of the poppy paper left to frame a piece to hang – just have to figure out where!
Have you used specialty paper for any projects lately?
