making decorations is the best! i tried out some decoration ideas when i made personalized chalkboards as christmas gifts for my friends and when christie and i created ombre canvas art.
have you seen the DIY frame upgrade part 1? i grabbed some mismatched frames and painted them white with old ceiling paint we had laying around. finally, i decided exactly how i wanted to use them.
i bought some $3 water colors (for children. i know. but it works!) and went to work. on regular printer paper (again, super creative) i practiced mr. and mrs. in script and finally got the final product the way i wanted it. then, with devin’s help, we strung thin wire through a length of clothesline rope.
we decided to hang them above our bed (see below). i'm not sold on the placement, but i was so annoying with directing devin on where to hang them (shift a little to the right! up more! ok, now move the other one to the left) that they are staying where they are. for now. ;)
