Fill empty frames in the Dining Room … check!
Don’t spend any money to do it … check!
Annoy my husband with this cheesy opening … check!
Maybe I’ll make it up to him by keeping this post short and sweet?
Yes, the table is still a hot mess, but at least the wall looks better.
All I really want to do lately is work in the yard and buy All. The. Plants. So, in an effort to feed my need for flowers, I went with a nature theme for the art on this picture ledge. And because I want to save my money to buy real, live plants I figured out a way to complete this arrangement without spending any money.
The end pieces both came from this book. I bought it over a year ago when I was planning Lily’s nursery. I used a few images for her room, but there were plenty of pretty options left to use for this project.
The hydrangea botanical print was a free download I found here, and letter R was just stolen from my living room bookshelves (originally purchased at World Market). And that creepy shadow is just me and my elbow.
The goldenrod photo was originally a larger print leftover from a church art sale. One of the perks of working for a gardening magazine (my “day” job) is that I got to know a wonderful and generous photographer. 😉 I cropped the photo down to fit the 11 x 14 space. And lastly the little blue/green canvas was an impromptu DIY that Jacob “helped” me create. I think it turned out pretty good considering I only spent about 5-10 minutes on it.
And now that that’s done, the garden is calling my name. “Weed me, weed me!”
