Design Sponge Finalists

The Design Sponge DIY Contest finalists have been posted.

Sadly, I didn't make the cut.  Well, with five hundred entries, it was a bit of a longshot.  Do go have a look at the twenty that made the list, and vote for your favourite.  Though it might take a day or two to narrow it down to just one...

My entry?  The "wallpaper" in my living room, made from bits of torn paper, theatre tickets, gift wrap and tissue paper.

That's Not Wallpaper!

you were robbed! Every day I'm tempted to start mod podging things to my wall, my floor, my dog but I don't. You've gone and done it! You are my hero.

Alright I've talked things over with the dog and we both agree that he doesn't need any flair. I do love this project though. I feel like it's something Miss Havisham would do in her house but in a much more insane/less artistic way. She'd just start gluing everything to the walls.

Hi Barb

Isn't this wallpaper interesting and unique!

Love it! You are one talented lady!

Thanks for your nice comments. I feel better.

And Miss Havisham - if you ever do podge the dog... I want pictures!

Hmmmm "podge the dog" sounds a little dirty, doesn't it?

Wow! Never seen anything like this! Beautiful!

I think this is much nicer than some of the stuff that did make the cut. Consider yourself robbed!

Thanks for the compliments - I was hoping to be told I was robbed.. ;)

But really, I've got a nice new wall out of the deal, so I can't really complain!
