I spent Saturday framing. I have become a woman of many talents as of late with all my DIY projects and I've added picture framing to my repertoire of skills. Although I did manage to ruin one of them when I was stapling on the backing, but one frame out of 10 isn't bad, right? I'm still waiting on one print to come from WHCC and then I'll be able to finish the largest frame I have (24x36!). All frames came from the thrift store and the most expensive one was $5. I ♥ thrifting!
So I decided to follow the expert advice and place templates on my walls to picture (ha) where the pictures would go:
See the blue tape inside some of the templates? I actually taped up some of the prints (in their plastic sleeves of course!!) to see if I liked where I had chosen to place them. Brandon asked me to take it all down after they had been up a few days. I guess they are kind of ugly, huh?
I do want to share something with you though. See the piece of wood in the 2nd pic? I bet you have been wondering why it is there. Right? Well I used it to make this:

I was inspired by this post. I made it yesterday afternoon while Brandon took a nap and I finished it this morning. Yes, I did hand paint it. It speaks to me. I simply ♥ it!
Oh … one more thing that has nothing to do with paint:
I snatched that up at Target on Saturday. It was on clearance and I really needed a lamp shade. Another thing that I added to the room that just makes me smile. The room is starting to look more and more like me. Well, you know what I mean. I'm enjoying the hard work.
