I think I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ll mention it again—-I am NOT good with details. I see big picture-like the colors of the walls, the shapes of the room, but accessorizing??? No way. It scares me to death.
Enter my mom.
I enlisted her to help me put some frames on my stairway wall. I hit up Ikea earlier this week and snagged 11 frames for less than $40! Oh yeah!
I originally started with the pictures I had and tried to find frames, but I
not so quickly eventually realized it’s much easier to start with the frames, then find the pictures to go in them…so that’s what we did.
This is how it started. In a very straight, organized, diagonal line. I called Alex to give me his opinion on it and he changed it around a little bit. I like it even better after he did.
The walls aren’t naked anymore!!!! Woohoooooo!!! And doesn’t Abby look so dang cute just sitting up there? I wish she’d sit perfectly still for all of my pictures:)
Yes, some of the frames are still empty, but that will be fixed soon enough. The port-hole mirror and brass key were finds from Queen of Hearts Antique’s a couple of weeks ago. I can’t wait to add more and more details as time goes by.
I created some of my own graphics on photoshop that are unique to me and/or Alex. Some were Pinterest inspired, but most were just unique to us. Here are the ones I used for the stairway.
