My latest decorating project was inspired by Arielle's first "real" drawing. I used quotation marks because she has made several drawings prior to this one but they didn't look remotely close to what she said they were supposed to be. The second I saw this drawing I couldn't even believe that Arielle drew it herself. Then when she told me that she drew a picture of Mommy & Daddy I literally got teary-eyed!
So I decided this picture was too good for the fridge so I checked out craigslist for some inexpensive frames and I scored BIG time! I got four matching, black frames with matting and two smaller ones for $30. There are a couple of dings here and there but since they are black I'll just color them in with a Sharpie and they'll be as good as new. The best thing about this project is that it's so easy to change out the art in the frame whenever Arielle creates a new masterpiece! I am going to hang the frames up in the loft above the new cube shelves which by the way I put side by side on the wall across from the loveseat and they now look like built-in-shelves.
