While browsing the cute wares at Butter Home in Seattle, I came across this wire doormat (you can also find them online at Lawson Fenning). I live in an apartment building so I didn’t have much use for a doormat in it’s intended purpose but I had other plans in mind. Flip it on it’s side and mount it to a wall and you’ve got a great place to hang inspiration and mementos. With all the different grooves, it’s easy to arrange things in just about any configuration with clips, magnets or string.
Here’s what I’ve got hanging on it now…
- Polaroid from our trip up Highway 101 last summer and a few colorful tags.
- Teeth magnet given by a coworker to celebrate the day she got her braces off.
- Photo strip of me and my guy goofing around.
- Paper flower and pom pom from the creative lair of Krafty Kath.
- Calligraphy tag from the recent Seattle Blogger’s Meetup at Farewell Paperie.
- Painted leather tassel from the latest DIY post.
- Felted heart from back in the day at Bing Craft Club.
- Flying pig print that I picked up at L’illustre Boutique in the Passage du Grand Cerf in Paris.
- Vintage photo of woman with hats stacked on her head that I found at Marché aux puces de Saint-Ouen in Paris.
- Japanese wood block print by Shuzo Ikeda.
- Star a coworker brought back as a gift from his trip to India.
- Be Brave mask from Alt Summit dinner.
- Origami flower.
- Admission ticket to the Ghibli Museum.
- One from a set of prints I discovered while wandering the shops of a Parisian neighborhood.
What would you put on it?
