Lovely screen currently being used to hide the wires to and from the computer.Read More
First off, it is a big piece and does cover a lot of wall. Great if you have big walls to cover which is what I needed it for. The quality is ok. Not worth *** something dollars though. The painting is stenciled with an airbrush and a few minor details are hand painted. But overall I can see only the airbrush and stencil technique. Also, the more I look at it...the more the last crane on the right is starting to look like a vulture. The legs of the second crane are a bit awkward in placement as well. But don't want to be too negative, because it is nice when you stand way back. Hanging...oh yes...just like everyone writes...it is a bear. The folding screen folds both ways, which makes it very hard to get to lay flat against the wall. We used some double-sided tape to hold it against the wall, so that it will not zigzag as it is hanging. But really, even though I read all the previous reviews, and thought smugly, "hey, I can hang it without a problem", I was soon to admit I was wrong. Took about 2 hours to hang properly. Luckily it is not heavy. It is made of a wood frame around each panel that is covered in black aluminum. The painting itself in on some type of cloth. Maybe silk, maybe not. The back is covered in black canvas. The gold-leaf has marks on it...so it is not perfect...but if you can hang it in a place where the evening setting sun hits it, wow...it is stunning then.Read More
As the title is stated "Gold Leaf Cranes Silk Screen (China) ", we were expecting a silkscreen. We have other silkscreens, so was a little disappointed. It is not a silkscreen. The workmanship is not as good a quality as depicted in the photo. There are ripples in the gold leaf. Of particular interest is the brackets provided for hanging. These screw ons IMHO are not appropriate for this art work. We ordered the appropriate brackets to hang the screen and it improved the appearance. At this price they should have been included.Read More
The screen with the cranes exceeded my expectations. Color and workmanship were as pictured and described. Other reviewers complained about the assembly. Even though there were no directions it was clear the hangers must be screwed into the top of the far panels. When hung on the wall, there was a slight gap in the middle, but we fixed that by putting a nail at the bottom of the center panel to hold it snug against the wall.Read More
I received this screen from my husband as our one-year anniversary present. We've both lived in China, and recognize the style of painting but have never seen anything so rich and elegant. It is absolutely stunning above our dining room table. It is definitely meant to be the focal point of a room. Assembly was a bit difficult, but with a little common sense and a drill, it was no problem. I would highly recommend this product.Read More

Best Ideas for a Cowboy Birthday Party
Plan the perfect cowboy birthday party for your little cowhands and their posse with a Western-themed party. With the right decorations, games and food, you can create a hoedown that your child and his or her friends will remember for years to come. Find cowboy party supplies and crafts for a colossal cowboy party, and don't forget to capture every moment with your camera. Invitations. Create cowboy party invitations that look like "wanted" posters using recycled brown cardstock paper. Print a black-and-white picture of the cowboy or cowgirl of honor in the center and use an old-style font or block lettering. Include the time and place for the round-up on the cowboy party invitations. Use fun phrases such as "howdy partner" and "saddle up for the showdown" for added laughs. Ask guests to come in their favorite cowboy attire, including rugged jeans, flannels and boots. Decorations. For cowboy party decorations, cover tables with red and white tablecloths. Display "wanted" posters of the birthday cowboy or cowgirl throughout the cowboy party room. Add balloons in colors of red, white and blue. Shape strands of rope into lassos and place them on the tables or hang them on chairs. Use bandanas or a Western-themed fabric for place mats. Create large cutouts of cacti, horses and cowboys for decorations. Bales of hay, stalks of corn and other items can add to the cowboy party decorations. Place bottles of water or juice boxes in a wheelbarrow filled with ice for refreshments. Dress up. Costumes and clothing can add to the cowboy birthday party theme. Because all guests may not know each other, give each guest a name tag cut to look like a sheriff's badge. Use silver cardstock cut into star shapes and attach the name tags with safety pins or tape. Provide guests with bandanas in a variety of colors. Give each guest a straw cowboy hat and a water pistol for an authentic cowboy look. Games. Though cowboys can be serious, there is nothing like having several fun games planned for even the roughest, toughest cowboy to enjoy. If you're holding a summer party, tell all cowboys and cowgirls to bring their swimsuit for a shoot-out using water pistols. Have a galloping contest; use brooms as pretend ponies and have races to see whose horse is the fastest. Old-fashioned potato-sack jumping contests are easy to assemble. Hold a boot toss contest: Have children toss bean bags, gold coins or other cowboy party supplies into an old pair of worn cowboy boots. Food. Create an old-fashioned homemade spread, complete with a cowboy party cake. Barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs or sloppy joes are always a favorite for little cowboys and cowgirls. Salsa and chips, beef jerky and even pulled pork sandwiches are additional ideas. Corn on the cob and cornbread are traditional cowboy staples. Create a cowboy party cake in the shape of a hat, pony or boot to continue the theme. Goodie bags. Thank each guest for coming by giving them a galvanized pail filled with cowboy party favors. Fill each pail with a small amount of straw or hay. Add trail mix, gold coins and licorice rope to each pail. Tie pieces of raffia or fabric for additional decoration to the pail's handle. For other cowboy party favors, consider purchasing small plastic harmonicas, sheriff badges and cowboy figurines. View All Crafts Back to Guides Directory View All Crafts
