For starters, I spent days trying to give my blog a "new look." It's so different from what I had before that I'm still trying to decide if I love it. What do you think?
Also, over the weekend I FINALLY hung pictures I've been meaning to hang for over two years, ever since we moved into our new house. I knew I wanted to create a picture wall, so I found the box of pictures, grabbed a few other wall decorations I've been saving, and spent Saturday afternoon creating it. I still need to update the pictures, but I figure I have at least another two years before I start to feel guilty! :)
Here's how it turned out.
To achieve this look, buy lots of frames (I found most of mine at Michael's and Home Goods), print off your favorite pics (I decided to use black and white because I love how they look with the black and white frames), add a few other wall decor items (ampersand, giant 'S', clock, quote blocks, etc), and Voila!
I think the key is to lay it out on the ground first, exactly like you want it. Make sure you measure the wall you want to put it on as well as the actual display on the ground. I quickly realized that my arrangement was a lot larger than some of the walls I considered putting it on. That's how it ended up in the hall at the top of the stairs, which turned out to be the perfect place for it. :)
And the great thing about a picture wall is that it doesn't have to be perfect! If you look closely (er, don't, actually) you'll see that mine isn't perfectly symmetrical. And that's okay. At least, that's what I tell myself. :)
So, that's it for me. What have you been up to? Are you working on any fun projects? Are you ready for spring?
