X marks the spot…

So, on a thrift haunt

I came across an old wooden Surveyors measuring stick.

Couldn’t leave it. you know how that goes.

15 feet in length…with three slides of five feet each.

NOW what does one do with it?

Relegate it to the once boys room/office?

But there are already funky long sticks hanging in the hallway. Loitering, more like.

{Painted bamboo….you can do your own at a workshop here.}

So they are clearly not letting him join in their tropical fun.

Hate cliques

So plop him over on the other side…looking sad and forlorn

Above the shutters? In the kitchen?

Where o where will X mark his spot.

Shoot me your ideas…

Hmmmm...I love that!!! I do like the floor lamp idea...hey you could do a gallery wall and incorporate it into that....I know you are chuckling...

I would use it as a frame shelf. Hang it horizontally on wall and then hang pictures right above it to look as though they are sitting on it like a shelf.
Would even help you place your frames with exact measurements...heheh!

Yes...You have gallery wall on the brain. Cindy. But actually a striking idea....how about incorporate them into wall shelves. In the right place. Hmmm.
