String Art : Imagine the Impossibilities Challenge

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

Love from

  1. 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."


  2. 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!)

  3. Hi Micki,
    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
