I've been wanting to put up a gallery of pictures in our family room. I received these picture frames for Christmas. After several attempts at ordering the right sizes and ordering a few additional frames, we're ready to hang them!
I used the paper inside each frame to practice arrangements. I like things symmetrical . . . . this really bugs my husband.
This was my first arrangement:
Of course, he thought it was too symmetrical. I'm always willing to compromise. I tried again:
We're a little closer now. With a wonderful cooperative spirit on both our parts and a few tweaks . . . this is the finished product. Of course, if you've been following any of my "tackles" few things are ever 100% complete. I need to order pictures for the triple frame.
No change this week in the room. However, I did order this bulletin board and these push pins from some great crafters at Etsy.
Obviously, clear out the room. Everything from computer pieces to bike parts. I am told all these various parts will eventually turn into a bicycle. I made a little progress clearing things out but still have some work to do. Order window coverings. I ordered 3 of these from Target. Order bedding.I ordered this organic duvet and pillows for the bed. I also order this blanket. I have a thing for pillows: I ordered this one in the sandlewood, this one in the khaki, this one in the ivory, and this organic one. Told you I had a thing for pillows. Can you tell I am going for a natural/neutral look with this room. Order lamps. I decided to re-purpose lamps from another room so no need to order new ones.Never mind, I picked one up at Pier 1 for less than $30. Install window treatments. Two out of Three hung ain't bad! Buy comforter for duvet cover. Buy mattress - Bob is doing this tomorrow Come up with something for the walls.I found something I love - a little tribute to my husband. I figured if I won't let him have the real thing stored in here . . . .
