Getting things on the walls

Moving stinks!

As exciting as it is to be in a beautiful new home, it is also frustrating to me. I want it to look beautiful, like yesterday. Do you know what I mean? Life goes on, I work, I take care of the kids and the household and get to do things in my spare time! Sometimes I am so tired that I want to do nothing, even though I have lots to do in the house. See my list (that has grown a lot) in this post.

So today I am going to share how I finally got some of my things on the wall. I have moved a bunch of items around but, finally I have found an arrangement I love, and I will share it with you.

I have a wall between the two windows in my family room. I found a dresser on Craigslist that I redid (you can catch a glimpse in a couple pictures) that fits perfectly between them. As soon as I find the right pulls, I will post about it. Anyways, it was the wall above this that I hung my pictures.

I love the look of a frame layered within a frame. The outside frame on the bottom is the old kind with the linen border on the interior. Just LOVE it! I have another one that is much larger that I have to figure out a perfect spot for.... Here are close ups of the frame and the lower print, which was a gift. It is a watercolor of Sedona. We traveled there with my sister and her husband and it was just stunning.

Thank you for reading, I hope you like my little arrangement. Baby steps........ I finally picked a color for the walls!!!
