Vintage Skis = awesome

We've been on a role fixing problem spots around the house. Today is more of the same (no the problem is not Smokey... sorry if he offends anyone) the wall above the stairs is very narrow and long and I have been trying to figure out what to hang there for 5 years... 
Our friend Kris left a pair of vintage skis at Mum and Dads and since Dad already has a set I stole them. 
 We used this tutorial to hang them. I LOVE the way it turned out. And it is definitely fitting in with our travel outdoor theme that is going on in the hallway
 And yes I do think that people from Florida who come over don't really get our house... Who am I kidding probably no one from anywhere gets it... but our homes are all about what make us happy right?
And these make me super happy... and Kris can have them back when ever he wants but he'll have to get them off the wall all by himself

I love the way they look! That may not be saying much since I do get it.... ha ha Whether or not they are fun!

WOW that's a BIG bear! The skis there are very cool! Were they hard to hang?

Adrienne said...

PS...I LOVE this shade of green. You don't happen to remember what it was, do you?

Kelly- not really... we were kind of retarded but once we paid attention it was easy!
Adrienne-- what green? The walls are a grey brown- I can get you the color code if you want it but I want to be sure what you are asking for

And if the bear gets bored hanging around he's got a way out. Cute idea. And you're right nobody else has to get our homes as long as we like them....but I do like yours.

it worked! Me commenting that is:) The bear is just crazy! Doesn't it scare you or creep you out? I love it though. What's the story on it anyway? Or did you already say...
The skii's are really really cool hanging. Like a lodge:)

Ah, very cool! Like everything in your sweet house! And the walls DO look green on the computer (the actual color is much nicer!)
