You may remember that first we painted our tv room red.
And then I got bored one weekend and decided to paint the bathroom purple.
This weekend I took the shitty weather as a sign that I should finally paint the master bedroom... something that I have been sitting on for several months. And, of course, I LOVE it!
Here's the before:
And here's my beautiful, chocolate, "after":
|What do you think? Beige rug?|
Several weeks ago I saw a blog posting of a DIY project that I absolutely loved... a framed tribute to travel.
I LOVE travel. I HATE DIY projects. lol But, this one I thought that I could do... or, at least, something similar. So, one day a few weeks ago, armed with Michael's coupons, left over white house paint, and a couple of fresh printer cartridges of ink, I set out to create my own.
Like I said, a few WEEKS ago I started this project (not a DIYer... no time, energy, patience or creativity... for the most part). And, this weekend, I am FINALLY done. And, after painting the bedroom, was ready to start my wall of travel (I painted a couple of extra frames so that the project could grow as we continued our adventures):
I decided that, instead of just framing the maps, I wanted to also frame photos of us enjoying the places that we've traveled. So, for each of our destinations (Hawaii, Vancouver, BC, Las Vegas, New Zealand, Melbourne) I found a map of the area as well as several photos, printed them up in the appropriate sizes, and framed them (excuse the crappy photos... it's hard to take pictures of pictures!):
I'm pretty happy with the way that this turned out... and am SOO looking forward to watching our wall grow! =)
