After moving into our new townhome, I started looking for some original decor pieces. And that’s when I ran into the jumbo abacus from CB2. But being a combination of frugal and inspired, I wanted to make my own – that’s when I came across: Anything Pretty. Our frame is slightly different but the idea is the same (approximate size ~ 2′ x 3′).
Recently our guests have been using it as a drink counter, where all balls begin on the right, each person chooses one colour and each ball slid to the left counts the number of drinks consumed – a modern twist to a traditional tool! Everyone loves it! In fact, after seeing mine, I inspired two other coworkers to make their own!
