To fill the empty wall space in the living room, I finally unpacked the box we brought back at Christmas with all my picture frames. We set aside an afternoon to replace a few old pictures with the new ones I had printed and hang them in the living room. We also have the painting my mom made for me up as well (Seriously, go check out my mom's work. She's very talented!).
I would say our living room looks and feels more like home now.
I totally found this awesome pin on Pinterest that inspired me to make something similar. I found the frame and small clothes pins at Walmart and I used tan yarn I already had. Some measuring, hot glue, and a bit of pizazz and we've got ourselves a sweet new piece of art. It originally hung on the wall in the living room next to the Chinese menu, but I moved it to the bedroom, as I feel like that's a more suitable place for this type of artwork. It's new home is above our bed.
Stay tuned for more crafty projects from Pinterest and my
slow ass leisurely journey of decorating our home. My mom says that it's good that I am taking my time, because I am able to put a lot of thought into what items I purchase and what I create so it will mean more to me later, not to mention look really, really good.
