Once upon a time I lived in this house.
I had nine brown frames on the wall of my bathroom.
Nine frames of my adorable children in that claw-foot tub you see right there.
Remember my Pinterest inspiration picture for the boy's wall in Haiti?
Today I took those nine brown frames, stared long and hard at my babies in those photos, then lovingly removed those pictures and gently touched their paper-little-kid faces.
I sat and sighed.
Where does the time go?
Oh yes. This post. Sorry.
Not everyone wants to sit there for awhile, in that same spot, and sigh again? And again.
And then maybe go look at those photos one more time?
I took those nine brown frames, painted them gray, then used free vintage nature images from Graphics Fairy (my sister-in-law, Lynsey shared this treasure trove with me) to make the focal point of the boy's room! I stole the card-stock from that same, kick-butt sister-in-law of mine, and I had to call Kirby in the middle of the magic for a few pointers and opinions. It takes a village I guess to decorate my house. Look at me throwing down words like, "focal point" like I know somethin'.
All it cost me was the can of spray paint.
I thought the boys would not care about this art project today.
I was wrong.
They were all up in my business.
They oohed and aahed over every picture.
And we all enjoyed the smell of the spray paint a little too much.
Don't tell anyone.
