The Shed Bar

_DSF9520In planning our wedding, we suddenly began to identify with the entire event, when we realised we could transform the shed into a bar. Embracing the kayaks, birds nests and abandoned furniture, it was a natural spot for a bar. We decided that here, too, could hide our assorted photographs ... we collected a photo of every guest that was connected to us (we didn't always manage their partners) and I had a dream of time exploring a multitude of ways for making fake picture frames from cardboard. From gold tissue paper, to varnished maps, gold crayon and patterned papers, I managed to create about 60 frames and spread them around the bar. _S160070
