I am always on the lookout for fun art for our house that is very personal. I don't like to hang random pictures...but I like them all to tell a story and most things on our walls at the moment are things we've made or are very personal. (and sometimes I buy things if they make me laugh, like this bathroom art).
A year ago I found a fantastic etsy seller that makes hand-cut paper designs with your name or initials. I fell in love with her store and bought two pieces. They sat around for a while but are finally up...in our master bedroom!
Here is the wall in progress. I traced the frames I wanted to use with magazine pages to make templates and then taped them on the wall to get the placement right.
My sister-in-law gave me this picture for Christmas two years ago. (Amanda - it's finally up - thank you!)
here. I still love them and have no problems leaving them up year-round. Eventually I hope to get around to finishing up several more projects for this wall. But for now, it's fun to have one less blank wall, and my sweetheart art hanging up!
