Â I’ve made my list and now it’s time to start checking things off.Â I think I’m doing a fairly good job, if I do say so myself! 😉
Remember last week, when I pointed out the projects that needed finishing in the living room?
Â Well, the art wall is finished.Â It’s not exactly what I envisioned. I thought the pictures I had were a little bigger and that I had more of them, but I think the arrangement works.
I decided to use wax paper to figure out the placement on the floor, then just taped it on the wall.Â It took a little more time, but eliminated a lot frustration.Â I will definitely use this method again, if I have multiple pieces to hang.
Â OK, so in the pictures the frames look a little crooked.Â I promise they look straight in person.Â At least,Â I think they look straight.Â I was told by my high school art teacher once that I have a crooked eye.Â Could explain a lot.
Â So, as I check one thing off I always seem to add another…now I really need to paint my new mirror!Â It looks too orange, and if it’s a lighter color it won’t stick out like the sore thumb that it seems to be at the moment.
Â I found these prints at a discount store for $3.99 a piece!Â I’m so glad that this wall FINALLY has something to add interest.Â It had been bothering me, and I really knew it was a problem when my husband mentioned numerous times that I needed to hang something on the wall.
Hope he likes what I have done!Â Either way it’s staying… 😉

I like it Angela – and it is very easy for stuff to look crooked in photos – I’ve had to turn my camera slightly crooked to get the finished photo to look straight!!!

Your house is beautiful!! I love the paint color you chose for the family room! What is the name/brand?
Thanks!!! Honestly, I can’t tell you the off-white color because it’s been so long since we painted it. It’s got tan undertones. The white is just a Valspar white with no tint.
