Changes to Family Room Wall


I've changed the large wall space in my family room...again.
This is what it looked like the last time I showed it to you.


It was okay for awhile but I kept feeling like I wanted something different.
When my Mom gave some old picture frames to me, I decided to try using them here.
They were gold so of course I spray painted them white.

~  here is what it looks like now ~


I made my own artwork or I should really say,
 I created something (it definitely isn't art) 
to put in these frames.
  I just used some scrapbooking paper and some
rubber stamps that I've had for a long time.


I also painted a couple old boards that we had and put them up
as kind of a ledger board or plate rail.


It's very amateur but I like how it lightened up this end of the room
and it's just something very different than I've had there before.


Do you find it difficult to fill up large wall spaces?
I sure do.
Especially when trying to do it on a budget!
I would love to hear what you think or
any great ideas you have for large spaces like this!


hope you're having a beautiful day
