And broken down. . .
DIY Picture collage:
I rounded up a bunch of frames that have been sitting in boxes for a year. . .or three. . .took out the backing and glass on each and tried to figure out an arrangement I liked.
or maybe. . .
Mr. Man agreed with me that they were placed too high on the wall. He also wanted them adjusted to make a square....I wasn't going for square. Today I rearranged and we are both happy with the result. Except I didn't wash the lower part of the wall and have had to re-affix the lowest two pictures, that's the one downfall I've encountered with Command picture hanging strips.
So the picture collage is almost finished, I just am waiting for the butterflies to arrive for the pink striped one and Madame Butterfly herself to arrive so I can cut out a silhouette of her as well.
Girly lamp shade:
This is the same table lamp we've had in our room for years. I just searched through my lace & trims box and found an eyelet that matched the lamp shade, then used double sided tape to attach it.
I made some wool felt flowers and velcroed them to thumb tacks that I then used to stick the crib quilt to the wall and hide that big blank space. Two shelves are between it and my bed, just for decoration though as I put them up using Command picture hangers too because I hadn't the slightest idea where a hammer and nails were. Here's a touch more of a close up of the nursery.
Oh, and it cost me $15. Most of it we already had or got for free!
