Belated Earth Day Art

Before I moved into my house.  The people who like me the best (or perhaps the worst?) organized a housewarming party. 

but I wasn't invited. 

In fact, I didn't know anything about it. 

They decorated my place with stickers and Hawaiian leis and easter eggs and bottles of wine and yardsale signs and ugly unwanted framed prints from their own places.   I drank the wine, took down the yardsale signs, and moved the ugly unwanted framed prints to the garage.  I left a few hawaiian leis and easter eggs lurking about - for fun.  They make me smile. 

So, moving on.  This weekend in the midst of bridal showers and Easter feasts, I tackled my garage (It looked like an episode of Hoarders) to determine what to keep, what to donate, what to Craigslist and what to Ebay.  One of the things that was on its way to anything but the 'keep' pile was this ugly unwanted framed print (acquired at aforementioned housewarming party).

 And then I thought better of myself.  So... In honor of Earth Day (belated), I bring you a repurpose with a purpose! 

With a couple cans of spray paint already on hand and a colorful vintage scarf (also found in said garage), THIS

is now what resides on my living room wall!   Now that its up, I'm thinking I need to repaint the frame a different color or perhaps find it a different wall - but that is another project for another day and I'm OK with it for now.     

Happy Easter!
