    Soon after I put up my "wall wood", an artist friend dropped by and suggested I add some paint to make the piece more, you know, more artsy-craftsy.

    I realize this sort of thing may not be everyone's cup of tea—but my wife and friends think it's fun. o_O

    ^ Certainly my cup of tea. That looks great.

    Found something for those who like to smoke and be high - cannabis-related decor. It does not have to be photos of the marijuana leaf, which seems like it would belong to a stoner kid's room some years ago. There are vintage-looking propaganda posters (which are reproductions) featured on this article that I'd like to have even though I'm not really not a user. Hemp is also said to be a sustainable and non-toxic source of fibre for furniture. Can be tasteful when done right and won't burn a hole in your pocket, from what I gather.

    Thanks! BTW, the colours are a bit more subtle in real life. :?)

    Fun! The sensationalistic anti-pot posters are hilarious. I don't think my wife would go for one in the living room, but it'd be great in my music studio.

    I know this is off-topic (probably off-forum), but since you've mentioned it: Yes, hemp is an amazing fibre. It's more durable than cotton and wool, takes much less water to grow, and is easier on the soil. From what I understand, the cotton and wool industries conspired in the '20s to demonize marijuana to remove hemp's competition in the textile market. Levi's Jeans will soon be using hemp/cotton blends as part of its sustainability practices, and have even developed a method of softening it to cotton-like consistency—there's an interesting story about it here.
