“A Monstrous & Modern Family Tree Made of Buttons”
Busy Beaver Button Company made all (nearly 1000) buttons for Anders Nilsen….
(for our master bedroom wall!)
“Anders Nilsen recently did this large install of 10,000 buttons and homeowner Tereasa Surratt knew she had to have a similar look in her own home. Her space is modern and fresh (check it out over at Dwell) so your normal shabby chic, papercraft version wasn’t going to cut it.
Nilsen partnered with our friends over at the Busy Beaver Button Co. and came up with a new fresh take on the family tree. The video above shows 6 generations of family in 984 fragments of photos, fabric and memories. The Busy Beaver crew assembled each button top and then the buttons were attached to the wall with what appears to be moldable plumbers epoxy.
The end result is simply stunning and is a great reminder that your family doesn’t just have to be in frames hanging on your walls, there’s all sorts of ways to get the job done!
