Dear Chicago House,
It is about time I did something about your bare walls, so to spur myself forward I am taking part in “Imagine the Impossibilities”.
Now as I have said before I am a little bit of a snob as to what I hang up. I like completely unique pieces, but this takes time and I never seem to have enough of it.
On a recent indulgence on Pinterest I came across a fabulous piece of string art and I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to have a go at making something similar. It is made simply from nails and string.
So am off to Home Depot and Jo Ann’s to by some supplies. What are the odds I end up hammering my thumb in this project!
Update: Mission completed…see the stingtabulous creation

So glad you've joined the challenge … and I'm very curious to see what you end up with …
So sorry we won't be able to meet next week. I'm sure it will be the first of many Chicago-area blogger gatherings …
Cool – glad you are joining our challenge! I've always wanted to do a string art wall – can't wait to see yours!
We are so excited that you and your Chicago House are joining us in this challenge! I think that string art is awesome and I can't wait to see your finished "impossibility."
that's very cool! looking forward to seeing what you come up with…
thanks for joining us in the challenge!
Wow! I love this project, I can't wait to see how it turns out. Then maybe I'll have to try one myself. Thanks so much for joining our challenge and posting our button!
That looks so very neat! I am not that brave. I don't think my old plaster walls could handle something. Nor do I think my 2 yo could resist touching it all the time (heck I don't think I could either!)
I actually used a plywood board for this project … I thought hammering nails directly into my walls could lead to disaster, the walls might fall to bits, I might hate the finished piece and having recently gone through the whole house selling thing I am sensitive to what realtors require of you to get your house sold …pulling nails out of a wall and patching is not good…not that I am planning on moving again any time soon!
Thought you might like to know the project is now finished. Check it out HERE
