It feels like it has been a long time since I was making progress on finishing my living room or since I have shared anything with you. Recently, I’ve started making progress again and I’m loving the results. Today I wanted to show you the picture frames that finally got finished and up on the walls.
There is nothing like having pictures or art on the walls when they have been blank for a year! About a year ago, we took down the chair rail in our living room, painted the fireplace and started on our makeover. In the process, I made some fun state and letter wall art as well as freshened up the lamps and got a new entertainment center. Progress was happening. Then the holidays happened and all progress stopped.
I won these Cut It Out Frames probably 1 and a 1/2 years ago…maybe 2 years ago. I love them and I have always wanted some of these frames. I swear I entered every giveaway for them that I saw. It paid off! I won a $75 credit to purchase frames. I selected 3 double mat frames and they arrived at my home. They sat for a really long time. In September last year, I began painting them. The holidays hit and they sat until March of this year. I finally got them done!
Let me show you what I did, what worked, and what was a fail for me. Hopefully you can learn from my mistakes and make your own diy picture frames a bit easier. View full post »
