I made all the art on this wall-the little “canvases” of the girls I printed off, then glued to chipboard squares (I knew I hoarded my old scrapbook supplies for a reason! Same thing with the chalkboard saying, found it on Pinterest (source).
Painted a frame teal, from Hobby Lobby, I think, then stuck some paper from that faithful journaling pack inside.
I bought a fun vintage sheet of scrapbook paper when I was in Portland at a shop called Collage and cut it up to hang in the kitchen, and some in the girls room. I made the little food canisters with wooden beads, little wood circles, and a bead glued together, then painted. The rug is a scrapbooking journaling card (with felt glued to the back for some weight) from the We R Memory Keepers brand. I put in “baseboards” in this room, the master, and the bathroom.
I bought a few of the packs at Target, and used them throughout the house for art work and tons of other stuff! it cracks me up here’s another piece of that paper in action-I made a little light for the kitchen…ghetto-ly stuck up on the ceiling…heh. Found it on Etsy, but the seller doesn’t have this color anymore. This awesome hutch came with the house-it had some ugly fancy trim on top, which I snapped off neatly (it was just glued on), sanded down, then painted this fun aqua color!
Glued some wooden letters onto a popsicle stick for the family sign. the apple poster is from that trusty scrapbook piece of paper, and the yellow chevron “canvas” I made with a little piece of craft wood and some tape.
(Charlotte made a couple of these that said KSIHDY and FLRGBG…) I made the mustard chair with this tutorial…only smaller dimensions. I covered it in some Yarn dyed black Essex linen, which worked out great! The large sign I made with some popsicle sticks, and cut out vinyl with my Silhouette to make a stencil, copying this sign. ), artwork is from that journaling pack, frame from Hobby Lobby.
