    weekend project!

    Advertisements
    I couldn't stand being away from home for so long so I went back today (already back in San Antonio though). BUT it was very productive ... DH and I made a picture wall so now our house looks a little more lived in.



    So on the far left from top to bottom is: a painting my mom did of a pic we took at the DMZ and a painting I did of Bella. Next to Bella we have our save the date and underneath that, the champagne flutes from our wedding.

    In the middle is a painting my mom did of our rings, flowers, and unity candle. And underneath (flash got it unfortunately) is a gift we got at our wedding, a picture of us and then everyone go to write around it.

    On the right is our photo collage and underneath that our picture frames, a picture of Butters and then a pic of us.

    It made me so nervous putting that together. Let's just say we used the level a LOT.

    I love it! the paint color is so pretty too.

    And can I just say, you and your mom are very gifted painters. I would not have thought that the painting of Bella was not a photo if you hadn't said something.

    Thank you! Making this wall made me realize how much I miss painting, I keep saying I'm going to find a studio but I keep putting it off, sigh. That's really nice of you to say, my mom works really hard at it so I'm going to pass along the compliment.

    You know, the paint color is growing on me. When we first moved in I thought it was too dark, but I think putting things on the walls is helping ...

    Lol! I'm not that artistic, DH was the one who had the idea and made all the arrangements of how it would look. I was very impressed.

    I think the white shelves, the white frames and flowers on the glasses and the light color in your mom's painting and the mat on the wedding photo, it really helps the darkness and the light colors are really arranged well to make the whole grouping balance the color. You guys did a really good job!

    That looks fantastic! You and your mom have got SKILLZ when it comes to painting. I had no idea they weren't pictures until you said something.
