The Sunday Project

I was itching to do some decorating.

But first, one must cull and clean:



(I did that part yesterday)

Then one must create a vision:



Next, one must plan.



As I was dealing with such an eclectic collection of frames (some wood, some black, some white, etc) and pictures (some in colour, some in black and white, portraits and snaps) I also arranged them on the bed. It took me, oh, probably two hours to find something that worked.


I went back and forth between the wall and the bed until I got something I liked. Another hour or two measuring and hammering (I can't help it, I must measure. My left brain wants to have fun, too).

And so now we have this:


(Yes, the center mirrored frame is blank. The photo isn't ready yet. But I had to do it. I had to.)

That wall has been blank for two years--since we painted the hallway. Two years!

Boom da da boom.

I love it- excellent work Alana!

I'm also stoked that my dining room wall is one of your inspirations...

I actually wondered if that one was from you! I love your chairs, too.

Boom da da wonderful! It looks great -- all the planning and measuring was definitely worth it. I'm generally too impatient to measure, but I see that it is a very good thing to do.

Yay, you!

I would have been so much lazier than you--and just hung 'em on up and then would have been disappointed in it. Planning pays off! Verrrry nice!
