Freshly Minted

"Minted is a design marketplace connecting you with the world’s best artists

Remember this awesome teak wall unit we picked up at a yard sale on the weekend? I’ve been trying out different ways to style the shelves – I’m really not very good at styling, so I’m pretty much constantly moving things around. But one thing that’s a definite keeper is the artwork from Minted on the right shelf.

Minted has soooooooo many awesome prints to choose from, as well as a wide rage of other paper products. After much deliberation, I decided on Oh Buoy by artist Kirby Lee Smith.

A week after I placed my order, the framed print arrived. Even the packaging was cool!

The print was framed and ready to hang.

There are 11 different frame finishes to choose from – you know, just so you’ll have to make more difficult decisions ;-)  I decided to go with the Distressed Cottage White finish because the paint finish on old wooden buoys is usually chipped and worn.

I love my buoys :-) Thank you Minted!

    1. Thanks Kerrie :-) Our rental house is completely white, so it's nice to have some art to hang and add some colour :-)
