We finally had enough picture frames to complete the wall. We first started with tracing out the outlines on newspaper and placing them on the wall for placement. I left them up on the wall for a week that way If I needed to move them I could before they were hung. After that Chris hung them on the wall. I love how it turned out and it's just the right amount of color.
We also found a bright red sofa table at one of the local shops here downtown. I think with the added pops of color from the photo gallery and the sofa table we now have plenty of color in the living room.
|We've been searching every where for photo books to store our pictures and we finally found them at Garden Ridge in Tulsa. You can't see the middle one but it's for New York City.|

We've been in our house for several years now and we haven't changed our master bedroom since then. I've wanted our bedroom to feel more spa like and relaxing. So I used some of my Christmas money and bought a new bedding set. Once I bought that I realized that nothing really went together anymore. I was going to paint the room grey but decided that would be way to much work. We found some curtains that hopefully go with the paint color.
After Chris hung the curtains the bedroom still didn't look right.
I've wanted to do a monogram above our bed for a while now and when I found the
perfect antique wooden picture frame from the Cellar Door, I knew I had to have
it. We went to Hobby Lobby and found some metal letters to put on
it. We thought we could just glue them onto cardboard with scrapbook
paper but the paper wasn't heavy enough. So we ended up going back and
getting fabric. I blame Pinterest for all of these wonderful projects
that we have been doing. I really love how it turned it and I think that
it completes the room. The next project for the bedroom will be to get
hardwood floors but that is long ways away.
