I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s April Fool’s joke. Today, this is a real post, though, about a similar topic. It’s what gave me yesterday’s post idea.
My husband and I almost always see eye to eye when it comes to design, but there are a few things we disagree on.
He is a actually a hunter and would love to put up a deer head from one of his hunts. I don’t think so… No way.
But… recently, the shoe was on the other foot. I was the one who dragged home a 20 pound deer head and begged to hang it somewhere. He said no.
I had found a solid wood deer head at Tuesday Morning that day. He was so cool. I wanted to paint him glossy white or blue. I thought I had a place to hang him, though I admit, it wasn’t ideal. Hubby nixed it. I wish I had taken a photo of him before I returned him.
I DO love the playful fake animal heads that are out there these days! I love a touch of whimsy – that is where my husband and I differ.
There is quite a variety of these animal heads out there.
From a DIY project like the one on Danielle Oakey Interiors (below) where she beheaded full deer that she found in the clearance section of Michael’s.
To cardboard ones at places like Uncommon Goods.
To glossy white resin ones like at Z Gallerie.
To hand painted ones on Etsy.
To newspaper ones (diy) on Design Sponge.
To wallpapered ones like on Conversation Pieces.
How do they look in rooms, you say?
Yeah, that’s right… Awesome. I’m still bugging him about it. I miss that deer.
