I posted Monday morning about these frames I found on clearance for $1 at Garden Ridge. I had several ideas in mind for them and I decided to first try using them for some photos from our wonderful recent Colorado trip. (You can see Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 about our trip. I still have two more posts and more photos to share!)
Got milk? As cute as the Happy Acres Dairy art is, it had to go.
I decided the pictures needed a little something extra so I searched through the mountains of ribbon stash I have. For when I scrapbook. Which I haven't really done hardly at all this year. But I will. So I keep buying cute ribbon. Just in case. But the cute ribbon came in handy to add a fun little border around the photos.
I ran out of the first ribbon which I really liked the best with the diagonal stripes. So I settled for this gray ribbon with the frilly white scalloped edge for the other two photos.
Here they are on the wall in our bedroom. It was dark and our overhead light is pretty awful so the lighting was not good when I took these pictures of the pictures, but you get the idea.
While I like them, I'm almost thinking I want something lighter to go with the other colors of the bedroom. Maybe just some patterned scrapbook paper or flower prints, or even our initials in each of the frames. Soooo after all the cutting and gluing of ribbon, I might leave the ribbon borders and then cover the photos with some different artwork. What do you think?
Here's the rest of our bedroom. It's still a work in progress though. Isn't everything? The area above the chair is where the new pictures are hanging. But I'm thinking something lighter might work better there. Sometimes I have to live with things for awhile to decide if I like them or not.
Sorry, more bad lighting pictures. Why do I always think to take pictures when there's very little light outside? It never occurs to me on the weekends in the afternoon to take pictures when there is gobs of light streaming in. I love my IKEA curtains though. I can't believe they have curtains this long for so cheap.
