Hitting the Wall(s)

We are sooooo used to bare walls. Before Christmas, not a thing was hanging. I am proud to say though, that we are beginning to hit up the wall decorating. And that's important BECAUSE our living space is currently very green, white, and brown ...We need some mo' color! 

So here are our first additions. 

This calendar, from PaperSource, knocks my socks. Each month of awesome pattern power can be turned into a gift box, file folder, or note card thanks to cut and fold lines on the back of each page.
Available from Paper Source- Now it's 1/2 off because, well, it's February already
This divider wall between the living room and kitchen, has a face that features prominently in the dining space. Boring whiteness, but now, with the calendar...hello personality. 

On to another dinning room wall. We have learned that, while our new home has treated us very well, there was a time when someone did some shoddy or misinformed electrical work. A lot of outlets are crooked, neutral wires missing, etc. And there are outlets where outlets are not normally needed. Take this one: about 7 feet from the floor and 3 feet from the top of the counter. 
(You can see hints of another project we are working on to the right!)
So, we hid it. We didn't even have to get out the hammer and nails.

I noticed this clock while browsing seltzerstudios.com (a great place for quirky interior pieces). However, Hubs found it for cheaper at Amazon.
Available at Amazon

So our walls are slowly becoming a reflection of us...colorful and nerdy.
