Wire Postcard Rack
Back in January we went to Bruges for my Birthday and as always I treated myself to a few cute finds, under the guise 'It's my birthday!'. One such find was the wire postcard rack from Hema, I guessed they probably would have them in the UK but I couldn't be sure and just had to have it!
I originally was thinking I would hang it in my craft room, but in the end it just sat on the floor not being used. So as I was looking through all my home decor for treasures I could use in my Summer house, I had a aha! idea, it could hang in my Summer House.
So off I went to my Summer House with a screwdriver, screws and tape measure. It looked best just under the honeybee print above my bench, minutes later, voila! my wire postcard rack was on the wall. I then searched through my postcard collection but couldn't find anything 'just right!'. Hmm, how about some Pantone postcards in shades of lilac, lavender and mint. I loved how it looked but the balance of colour wasn't quite right and it felt like I needed some more art below the second framed honeybee art. A quick internet search later and I decided to buy a second wire postcard rack from Hema. Now I would have 18 slots for artwork that I could alternate when I liked to change things up!
But since I didn't have 18 postcards in the right colours or styles to fill it, I decided to design my own. I opted for a mix of my own photographs of flowers and craft supplies and some prints I had been working on. I ordered 20 postcards from Moo in a matt finish using a couple of different prints for the reverse of the postcards. I love how it turned out and along with my Pantone cards, I now have 32 different postcards, so I can mix it up and change it when my mood suits!...
