I've been thinking of ways to convert the ceiling beam in the bedroom (which I think is actually a heating duct cover) into some sort of art work so it blends with the room instead of just seeming out of place. I've had a few ideas. One of them was to install DIY'ed limbs along the sides since I have an assortment of those in the garage and they were part of my original vision.
The above are examples from my pinboard. The outcome would be a mix of what's going on here. I like it and I do want to use the limbs some where in the house, but I can't seem to stop exploring my options.
Antlers came to mind. I do love vintage antler mounts. There's just something about the shape of them that is absolutely great and today while I was browsing images, I saw this:
Then I was convinced I had to have vintage antler mounts for the bedroom, especially since yesterday, I saw this:

|then of course, I needed more of these (doilies)|
So, in a frenzy of ,"This is such a good deal and my DIY will be fabulous!", I hit the 'buy it now' button. Now I must wait impatiently for the two to arrive. I picture them hanging in a row across the beam with more fabulous and unnecessary garlands draped in between. Now I suppose I have to finish painting the beam.
