Hope everyone had a good weekend.
I spent most of my day with a paint brush in my hand, painting what will soon become a bedroom in our finished basement. More to come on that at a later date.
The only other thing I got accomplished today (besides 3 loads of laundry) was the addition of these photos to my guest bedroom.
You know how one project seems to lead to another? Well, after I hung that
white cabinet in the guest bedroom I thought I needed to add something to the wall space to the left of the closet door.
I'm trying to use what I already have so I went digging through my drawer of old hardware and found two of these pieces that I believe came off of old windows.
My original thought was to use this hardware piece as a picture holder, hanging the picture like this.
It wasn't bad but it was kind of boring.
So I went back to my closet and found two hangers.
I searched through my photos and found two cabinet cards. These are actual relatives. The first communion picture is of my Aunt Hazel, born in 1903. The baby is my Uncle Larry, born in Dec. 1910.
I also grabbed a couple of old doilies.
Using the hanger to hold the picture and the doily, I hung the hanger on the old hardware.
I changed it up for my Uncle's picture, using a small dresser scarf as the background.
It's kind of different so I am trying to decide if I like it. The nice thing is if I grow tired of it I'll just remove the hangers and hang some framed pictures from the hardware.
I'm starting the week by linking to some parties:
Make It 4 Monday with Cindy @ Cottage Instincts,
Amaze Me Monday with Carrie @ Dittle Dattle,
Masterpiece Monday with Mary @ Boogieboard Cottage
Have a great week.
