Well, I finished my race! I think I ran about half and walked the other half, which is good considering I hadn't trained at all.
After the race we stopped for some food, and then we all came home and took a two hour nap. It was much needed for all three of us. The sun really zaps your energy.
Now to the point of my post, I wanted to share with you some photos of a silk rose flower wall. I haven't done this project myself, but have it on my list of things to do some day. I can just imagine how awesome this would look on one wall of my guest room with lavender, plum, cream, and gray silk roses. It looks pretty easy too! I took these photos in one of my favorite taco restaurants here in Austin. It looks like they just mounted some small wire mesh/screen to the whole wall and then hot glued the tops of roses to the mesh/screen. The only complication that I can foresee is finding that many roses and not having it break the bank. I definitely think finding a wholesaler is the way to go, but that is going to be the difficult part.
I think this project would also be great in a smaller scale. You could cover large canvas frames with the mesh and then glue on the flowers. Think 3 or so large (36" x 48") panels on one wall in the colors of your rooms decor. Yes please!
What do you guys think? Any leads for cheap silk roses?
