Ok, ladies...let's hear it. Do you struggle with what to hang on your walls. Do you have fully clothed walls or are they nekkid (that's how we say it down here)? I get alot of questions and comments from people who are afraid to adorn their walls. WHY? Well, in my little 'ol opinion, it's fear.....the "Debbie Downer" of all perfectionists. She whispers in our ear making us doubt our strengths and abilities, thus keeping us from creating something beautiful. DO NOT listen to that voice anymore! Listen to yourself. Be true to yourself. Find your own personal style. Then you can move past that fear and make your home reflect YOU!
These cute little birdies have been on my to do list for some time, and I finally stole a few minutes this weekend to get them done. Such a simple addition, but so stinkin cute! I love this one perched on the corner of the door frame.
And seriously...isn't this aqua blue bird adorable? LOVE him! He makes the whole wall much more interesting, don't you think?
I better be careful, or soon my gallery wall of empty frames might just take over the whole room! My collection of yard sale, thrift store, and trash frames is on-going. I simply cannot help myself when I see a good deal on a nice big chunky frame. It doesn't matter if the color is hideous, because I spray paint them all heirloom white to tie the whole grouping together. I don't even notice color when I'm shopping for second hand frames. As long as it has good bones, it's a keeper and it ends up coming home with me. Never again will I pay regular store prices for frames. I have been spoiled rotten from shopping second hand.
I really enjoy this wall of empty frames. It is random and silly and quirky, but it is so me. And I love finding new additions to funk it up even more! But, if you're not into the empty frame look, another great idea would be to use vinyl decals inside some of the frames....an initial, a monogram, a bird, crown, chandelier, etc.....anything that speaks to you and reflects your personality or personal style. Then to unify the look, simply spray paint all the frames the same color. This is a great wall filler for anyone struggling with what to hang on their empty walls. I know there are some of you out there with scantily clad walls. Please, don't let your walls be naked...it's so sad. Walls deserve love too. Don't let your fear of too many holes or not enough money keep you from having something pretty to look at. Alot can be achieved with little to no money, and a bit of paint and creativity. So, what are you waiting for? Grab those ugly hunter green and mauve frames from 1987, give 'em a coat of your favorite paint color and go to town, baby!
