I stopped at a local nail salon last week and when I walked in the original, creative decor just blew me away:

I spoke to the owner of the salon, David, who had decorated the space. He knew that he needed large artwork for this big wall. He told me most all of his artwork he made himself and he found some additional decor at places such as yard sales and salvage yards. Can you guess what this artwork on the wall was made of?:

If you guessed arm chair rests, you are correct!

I was amazed! David said that he had a friend with a leftover box of these armrests and asked if he could have, even though at the time, he did not know exactly what he was going to do with them.

He started playing around with them one day until he noticed shapes taking form. To hang them on the wall, he inserted a small 2-3” wooden dowel in the back of the piece and made hole in the wall to stick the other end of the dowel. The pieces are pretty light and he said they have held up just fine.

I think they are just so creative! Did you notice what the eyes are made from?

David has been very successful with his business since he opened two years ago. He understands that his customers lead a busy, stressful life and it is a special treat to come in to be pampered. He strives to make the customers time special and relaxing. He also believes in treating his employees well so they too have a great attitude and want to make the customer happy also.

Love this guy here in the corner!:

David believes like a lot of us, that it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to be creative. Here is a picture of the talented David:

Look how ingenious these mirrors are that he made:

The picture just does not show how cool they look. He hung a rectangular smoke mirror on the wall, then in the center of that mirror he hung a round regular clear mirror on top. I am so inspired that I am trying to find somewhere to hang this in my home because I am going to make one for me! I love them! So cool and different.

I was so impressed with his work that I asked if I could share with my decorating friends!  He is so talented and resourceful, don’t you think? What do you think of the mirrors? Have you ever seen anything like that? I hope you enjoyed!

Have a great weekend everyone!

David and his incredible talent can be found at his salon ‘ENails’ in Slatersville, RI.
