I am not a great decorator. I never have been but could only hope that one day I will be! Well I saw this idea on Pinterest before we moved to Texas and had planned to make it once we got here…..5 months later I did! I had found a site that had free printables of each state – sadly they shut their site down. So I turned to Etsy! I found a great shop called Olive and Birch who will create beautiful pictures of the states in any color or design that you want! And their price was great! I would use them again in a heartbeat!
Olive and Birch emailed me the pictures within 24 hours and I was able to print them off at my local Target store. The next step was to find frames. I had originally thought I was going to go with a white frame with a white mat. I went to Hobby Lobby with my friend Stacey to look for frames and I didn’t find a white one that I loved. Thankfully Stacey pointed out a wooden frame that I fell in LOVE with – and I got them all for 50% off – whoo hoo!
I knew that I wanted a saying or something to hang at the top of the frames. I originally thought about getting an old board plank with the saying “home is where your heart is” or “Home is where you’re husband is” but couldn’t find a thing. So I started looking at the vinyl lettering that you can put on your walls and found one that I really liked it says “Take my heart and walk through this world with me”
So on Sunday Brian and I got the chance to put them up on the wall – personally I think it looks amazing, I love it!
We hung this in the front hall, by our front door – so I couldn’t get a straight on picture…oh well.
We also hung a saying in our bedroom – and while I LOVE the saying, I think it still needs some work….any ideas? (please forgive the lack of the bed being made – laundry day!) It just seems a little I don’t know….blah?
What projects have you completed from Pinterest?
Make it a GRATE Day!
