Our house has a two story foyer. There are really tall blank walls that I knew had to have something big on them. I had the idea that I could arrange pieces of birch bark and frame them.
I bought the sheets of birch bark from a shop I found online. They were great. I also bought birch poles that I intend to use as curtain rods in my den, as soon as I can find brackets that can accommodate the 2 inch diameter and that I like.
I made the frame using wood molding that I stained and mitered.
I mounted the frame and the sheets of bark on the wall, with a little help from my husband who isn't afraid of heights.
