I know did you just spit your tea, coke, or water all over the computer screen?
Seriously, I use to love scrapbooking. i loved everything about it. Then one day…….I stopped. I lost it. I lost any desire to do it. I still take pictures. I still write down the stories in a journal (on in the photo album) but as for making something with them….it just hasn’t been in me.
Now on that note, when you see what I made. #1 don’t laugh. #2 it doesn’t involve pictures. I have recently been obsessed with decorating our living room (cost effectively) in a nice way. To put it mildly, I was extremely embarrassed to have people come in my house. It was bad………now not so much. I really like it.
Anyway, as I mentioned I am doing it as cost effectively as I can. If you can think back, you will remember my post of my Goodwill furniture and the painting that we did of our old furniture. So I had inspiration on Friday and after talking with Gretchen I decided it was good. (gretchen it is not the phrases we discussed….the words were too big, and I didn’t have the right rub-ons)
This is what I put together
and this is what it looks like from the front….I think I hung them a tad bit too high… it is bothering me to no end….but Eric says, “get over it, I am NOT putting more holes in the wall.”
So I am working on getting over it……….I have a feeling, I will be grabbing a hammer and some wall putty soon 🙂
that vase with the sticks looks way darker than it actually is…it has a rust color to it….it is cool, I got that and the sticks on clearance at Wal-Mart…….pretty cool for Wal-Mart, huh? and those pictures are not my fav’s but I put them there in an attempt to get over the fact that I hung those frames too high……ps those are my dollar store frames………..seriously, I could own a million of them!!! Is it just me?
the orange wall is still in progress, when it is 100% I will share that too……
