Artwork

Some friends sent us a piece of artwork that I treasure. I wanted to display it in a special way, so I put together a DIY cork board that works perfectly. Making the cork board was ridiculously easy. I already had a thrifted frame that I turned into a chalkboard for my Good Enough Mudroom. [...]

I had an empty wall in my laundry room that was begging for something fun to fill the space. Last month, I saw this project over at Young House Love and I couldn’t get it out of my head. But I didn’t need a clothespin chandelier. I needed something to hang on the wall. So [...]

Can I Get an Amen?

I spotted this on Pinterest a few weeks ago and tracked down the original source for the artwork. You can download the free printable version over at Sweet Blessings. I’m thinking that I need to wallpaper my kitchen with it. My weak little heart must be constantly reminded that I don’t need to compare myself [...]

I love projects that are quick, easy and have a big impact. This one hits all three and it got me a “MOM! That’s cool!” from my son. I seriously want to cover an entire room with cork right now. It gives my little collector a place to display all of those very-important-for-the-moment treasures. Between [...]

Several months ago, I shared the Kid’s Artwork Gallery Wall that I put together in my hallway. Over the summer, we’ve created lots of new masterpieces, so I’ve been changing out the artwork pretty regularly. The only downside to my display is that taking down the frames and changing out the artwork is a bit [...]

I GOT A TOBACCO BASKET!!!!! Sorry. Didn’t mean to startle you. But some things just need the CAPS LOCK. Let me back up a moment. Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about my latest decorating obsession? The humbly glorious tobacco basket? The beautifully rustic tobacco basket that you simply cannot find in [...]

My 1st grader brought home a piece of sweet construction paper artwork the other day. Of course, it was jammed into his backpack all wrinkled and tattered. But I love it. And it reminded me of how much I love willows….we’re going to call them kitty willows for the sake of avoiding some unfortunate google [...]

Thank you for all of your kind comments on my Kid’s Artwork Gallery Wall. You make a girl blush. After the big reveal, I promised to give you the “how-to” and some tips for creating a gallery wall of your own. So let’s get to it! This gallery wall was designed specifically to display my [...]

Oh happy day! I finally did it! I finally finished the children’s art gallery wall that has been inside my head for over a year. For the last 2 days, I’ve been shopping my house to get all the frames I need, picking out kid’s artwork (and commissioning a few new pieces) and spray painting [...]

Fill Your Frames ~ With Maps

by Kimba on March 30, 2011

in Artwork,decorating

I still haven’t found the perfect solution for the empty frames on my family room wall. But I got tired of waiting for perfect (and of explaining why I have empty frames on my wall). So I turned to one of my go-to frame fillers. Maps. They’re beautiful and easy to find. I found an [...]

Fill Your Frames With ~ Calendar Pictures

by Kimba on February 25, 2011

in Artwork

This post would have been much more timely in January when every store had shelves full of calendars at 75% off. But being timely is not one of my strong suits (suites?). So tuck this away for next year. OR, if you’re up for a hunt, you can still find a killer bargain on a [...]

Fill Your Frames ~ With Kid’s Art

by Kimba on February 24, 2011

in Artwork

Idea #2 for filling up those empty frames is to display some of your kiddo’s artwork. I haven’t done it before, but I think it’s a brilliant idea. You can coordinate the colors…or not. Crayons, markers and paint all play so nicely together. And you can change the artwork out as new masterpieces come along. [...]

Fill Your Frames ~ With Real Photography

by Kimba on February 22, 2011

in Artwork

I was so tickled to find out that I’m not the only one with empty frames on my walls. I want the artwork in my house to be beautiful and meaningful…not just art for art’s sake. But I’m not a collector and I don’t have unlimited funds to fill my empty frames. And artwork is [...]

If you have ever tried to hang a group of frames so that they’re all level and straight, you know what a challenge it can be. Even if you’re using a group of identical frames, there’s a good chance that the hardware on the back of each frame is positioned slightly differently on each frame. [...]

Living In the Process

in Artwork,decorating

I have three empty frames hanging on my family room wall. They’ve been there for a couple of weeks. I don’t apologize for them, but I do usually explain. I used to have a big blank board and batten wall. One of my 2011 house goals was to put some artwork on that wall. But [...]

Project Finished!

in Artwork,Do it yourself,Sponsors

I have been having a ball playing around with my new Silhouette! Seriously. This little machine is incredible and I’m amazed by all the things that you can do with it. Like any new tool, it takes some time to figure out everything that it can do and I always prefer to just jump in [...]

I just have to share the latest addition to my family room. It was an easy DIY art project and the results make me clap and squeal. I’m writing a tutorial, but I couldn’t wait another minute to show you the finished results. Tutorial tomorrow. The back wall of my family room is big and [...]
