Oh what to do with a husbands music poster collection? Not exactly something most woman want on display in their carefully constructed colour coordinated home. On the other hand, it is “your” home together. He does have the right to have his things up among yours.
Andy loves his music. For the past decade he has been collecting all his favourite band and concert posters. Moving house did nothing to dissuade this collection. In fact his collection grew bigger until an idea from a magazine prompted a husband, wife team in displaying the collection.
One night when the kids were in bed, Andy and his wife set about the lay out. Measuring the area on the floor, posters, cut outs and flyers were rearranged until it looked suitable for them both. Andy then took a photo to ensure the arrangement would be remembered when the sticking took place. PVA glue was used over the whole area and then the sticking took place. Trickiest thing was making sure al the air bubbles were out. Once dry, a spray polyurethane ensured little fingers couldn’t pick corners off and protect the posters from spills.
The effect: colour, interest, memories and personality in once a boring kitchen area. Andy summed it up when reflecting on the space “it’s our home, we can do what we want with it”. Do you agree with this statement? Would you let your husbands collection take a main spot in your home?
