wall art

when jake and i went down to alabama, we came across this piece of art hanging on the wall of a store. he really liked it, took a picture of it, and decided he was going to make it. once jake has an idea he has a hard time parting from it. so sure enough, a month later we made the wall art. here are a few pictures of the grueling process. jake was the photographer, i was too busy trying to keep up with his power sawing!

getting supplies

sanding the blocks

we spray painted the blocks

i had more sanding to do

the final product.

it's supposed to hang on the wall, i guess we're still trying to figure out how exactly that's going to happen. it's also supposed to be rotated so that the blue blocks are horizontal but i think you get the gist of it. the only thing we had to go off of was a picture jake took with his cell phone of the original art in the store. the picture taken wasn't even all that great, which made it that much more tricky. i think the blue blocks were supposed to be a little wider than they are and the boards were also a little thicker. i think we did pretty good though! i love projects like this, even if you are exhausted afterwards. i'm looking forward to the rest of this week. going to the only beach in nebraska, linoma beach, with friends meredith and tim! can't wait to get some sun.
