I wanted to work on the artwork for the big blank wall in this room. The giant blue canvas looked so lonely! I had several white frames, plus that giant blue canvas, so I just picked up a few more white frames from Michael’s, pulled out two little white canvases I intend to stamp with my kids handprints, and painted a frame from my collection white. I love how it turned out! Of course I used the “hang newspaper on the wall” method to decide on the layout, and then marked right on the paper where I should hang things. (I asked my husband what he thought about it and he said, “It looks like we have ads on the wall. He’s a great help ;) I love how the frames look, and there’s plenty of room to expand as I get more pictures and objects that just have to go on the wall. So I have all the frames on the wall… anyone want to take bets on how long it takes me to actually fill the frames with pictures?
|Before... doesn't that canvas look lonely?|
|This method is soo much easier than trying to lay it out on the floor!|

Still to come… a capiz chandelier for the corner with my recliner! It’s actually here but I just can’t figure out where any of the joists are in my ceiling, so I’m waiting patiently (ok not that patiently) for help. And then I need to recover that yellow piano bench… but that’s been on the to do list since the piano came. Hopefully I get it done soon! I get the feeling I'm running out of time... =)
