Walls of Wheels


So we've been trying to redecorate our home office for a while now and I think we are finished.  The room was basically a place we went to dump everything and I wanted to use it as my workspace.  Yet, every time I would try to work in there I would get upset at what disorganized mess it was.  Connie requested we give it a roller derby theme since she really liked the art she had been collecting from the bouts.  So I agreed as long as we could do something interesting with one wall.  As you see over my desk we have a giant poster that shows off the logos of 100 Roller Derby leagues all over the country.  Connie purchased some crazy skateboards decks with Britney Spears' face on it.  Which if you know Connie was a buy she could not pass up.  We also framed a couple of her derby flyers.  And on the other wall I took a photo of Connie jumping over somebody during a game and simplified it and had it printed to canvas.  I thought it would be cool if we could create a pattern on it we could continue on to the wall.  She was very skeptical during the process but I think we are both happy with the result. Check it out.  And yes, parents,  that is the new couch you will now get to sleep on when you come to town.

I really like what you did with the photo of Connie. Continuing the pattern onto the wall was a cool idea, and it looks really great- adds a lot of zing to that wall! The Britney board is a bit scary though.

I'd like to see a photo montage of your whole apartment. Hook it up and I'll do the same. I won't be living there for a whole lot longer so I think I'd enjoy doing that anyway.
