Our First Jackson Pollock!
You can see the fifth door I was blathering about on the left shutting in what I refer to as the closet unit of the dresser, nightstand, closet combo that I made. Inside there is a retractable hook that can hold about a dozen shirts of any guest needing to use it.
The main purpose of this post is to show the new artwork we obtained for above our Murphy bed. Since we are too cheap to actually afford a real Jackson Pollock painting, we did the next best thing. I glued together some scraps of oak from this project and made a box frame over which I stretched some canvas that we had left over from a previous project. After tarping a large area and pouring some different colors of acrylic paint into various holes of an empty egg carton, I said go and turned the girls (age 9 and 3) loose. After 40 minutes of painting and an occasional rotation of the frame by me to allow for even access, this is what they came up with. I couldn't be more pleased.
