My Armitage theatre wall

The other day I blogged about the Uncle Vanya framed collage I had made needing another frame. As I have other things hanging on that wall with black frames, I figured black would be the way to go. So, I bought a new black frame and decided to keep the red background of the old frame for the collage. The end result looks like this…

Not only does this look better than the old, thick, light wooden frame, suddenly everything hanging on that wall pulls together nicely and I now have a complete Richard Armitage theatre wall in our dining area. My mother’s The Crucible painting now replaces a (pretty standard) Audrey Hepburn canvas I had hanging above that window, and the Uncle Vanya collage now hangs on the The Crucible poster’s old spot. I really like my themed wall.

The extra bonus is that the red background in the Uncle Vanya collage actually matches very nicely with the antique old Dutch children’s chair we have standing there. As a child I actually sat in that chair to eat. It is now used to store the cats’ food and is the spot where our black cat eats.

I start work again on Monday and the best thing of my working day will be that I can look at that Richard Armitage theatre wall. 🙂

    1. Ah, thanks. 🙂 It travelled with my family from The Netherlands, to Israel, to Germany and then somehow I got it in my home some 20 years ago. It used to be a reddish colour in my childhood, then my mother painted it blue and it’s been blue in my house for all these years until about a year or two ago when Mr E and and my daughter painted it dark red again. I love it too!
