Artsy Pantsy – Fake It Till You Make It

I can picture Michelangelo laughing. Yes, laughing at me.

My friend had the opportunity to see Michelangelo’s 14 ft marble masterpiece depicting the Biblical hero, David. Let’s just say, we’ll never hear the end of it. 😀 But really, from the pictures, and all the tales from her trip to Italy, that fellow’s work was spectacular!

That said, I love them – My new buys that is. And that’s all that matters, right? Do that which makes you happy…yada yada yada! I have always pictured what my house would look like and since I am still working on a mini wall gallery for Mr & Mrs. Ng’ang’a, I decided to get myself these p̶i̶c̶t̶u̶r̶e̶s̶ paintings (because the former just sounds bland) in the time being.

At first I mounted them with wall hooks. They did suffice…for three days. SMH! Necessity is truly the mother of invention (and of alternatives).

Now, I must be the only one living under a rock because all my life I have been using the hooks and I now feel like my whole life has been a lie. 🙂 The mounting tape is really easy to use and I love how the paintings look like they are hanging magically.

New York New York!

I really hate that I did not place the middle piece properly. Arrrrrgh! What do you think?

PS: Look out for the next post. I am pretty excited about it!

Tip:

  • I am not too sure how heavy you can go.  These pictures are about 0.5kg. They still haven’t fallen. If you happen to see me with a black eye, ditch the tape.
  • The tape is relatively cheap and from the package it says that it’s easy to remove. It is also not very long so if you have lots of art to mount, you might want to buy a number of rolls.
  • Use a piece of string to guide you on placement during the mounting.

    • Hello Koko (love the name), I got them from House Of Leather (the one near Adams). I think I spent a little under 1000/- for all three pieces. Great buy if you ask me.
