Anywho-- you know how we ordered our new leather sectional for the basement? Well, its still not here... we have three more weeks to go which seems like F-O-R-E-V-E-R... I don't wait well, which means this is painful. I decided to work on some "art" for our basement, which is void of really anything at the moment besides a random coffee table, or two, so its ready to go once the couch makes its way into our basement. So I have already worked on the yarn wreaths I showed you the other day and my latest project are these little works of art...
Go ahead and take a moment to oohh and ahhh:-)
So, not that you really need to watch me put these bad boys together but lets be real, this is a blog and I have nothing better to talk about, so humor me please..
I picked up some 13 x 13 album frames from Michael's-- I had been looking for these forever but all of the ones I found were $8 or $9 bucks.. not much but when you need 8 of them it gets a little pricey for a cheap project. SO... I checked the Michael's weekend ads every week and finally found these on sale for $4.99 THEN I cut out a little bonus 25% off coupon for the entire purchase and bought all 8 of them for just over $30.00!
When I found this packet of 8 large stickers at Homegoods for $12.99- it was a moment. A BIG moment. I could have cried-- they were exactly what I had been looking for and they were BEYOND cheap.
They were meant to be stuck directly to a wall but I thought they would look SO much better all framed up and fancy looking. See sticky...
I opened the back of the frame and got myself all ready to cut the sticker and place it in.. I figured there was no need to unpeel it since it would be framed.
This is about the moment that I realized I majorly failed. My frame was about 1/2 inch too big.. so off to plan B... luckily the frame had a perfectly sized white piece of paper in it that I was able to peel and stick my "sticker" onto-- it made for a slightly larger white outline that was slightly noticeable but only if you really stare at it. I couldn't take a picture of the peel and stick process cause it was STRESSFUL... I kept getting pockets of air and then the sticker wouldn't come off... not a good time at all.
At the end of the day I am in love! My couch needs to get here soon so I can hang these bad boys up!
Hope you all are having a GREAT weekend!
