I couldn't afford pre-mounted icons, so I ordered from nice prints and then printed the rest out myself and mounted all of them onto canvas boards that I had painted.  Not perfect, but nothing to be ashamed of, I think :)
The main corner is not on an eastern wall, but it is central to the house so I can see my vigil lamp from almost anywhere in the house; the corner is also opposite the front door, which I like.  Then both my son and I have icons on the walls opposite our beds.

Nice, especially that icon of St. Evgeny! Did you order it online or buy it somewhere locally?

A print stylized as a wooden carving stylized as an icon with a metal cover (printed). When I see creations like that I often wonder whether people who made such stuff have no sense of aesthetics at all.

Or maybe it's just a photo.

We all can't have original icons to take for granted.

Lack of money is not an excuse for the lack of taste.

Probably that's first time I see crosses crafted in a fabric in such way. From where/whom have you got them?

One of the babushkas at Church.  The Roman style cross was a gift for my chrismation.  She told me she couldn't do a Russian (3-bar) cross because of her arthritis.  Just before she died, she gave me the 3-bar one - she made it just for me.  I love that woman.  Please pray for her.

I've got three or four of those Kursk root cards from when it stopped in St. Francisville. I wasn't able to make either trip, but apparently several people thought I needed some kind of momento.

Awesome. Sometimes I get the remembrance of death by observing the piece of wax with my hair that was cut in the tonsuring, my archbishop said I should be buried with it (I'm not sure about the prevalence of this tradition since I never found anything else about it on the internet), but keeping the burial shroud there is really bold.

Even better would be to build your coffin and use it as your icon desk...until the day when your body needs it.

AFAIR, my godmother told me she keeps my chrismation hair somewhere for some reason.

I saved that page a few years ago.  I love the idea.
