Before and After

So I have this really inspiring friend named Meg.  She's very crafty, and she'll go to Pottery Barn, see something for $300 and make it herself.  It's cheaper and looks cuter.  I don't think I tell her enough (or at all!) how awesome I think her talents are.  So there you go Meg, you're awesome and I wish I could be more like you.

So this week I tried!

We have had these atrociously ugly pictures that have been in our bedroom for awhile.  I bought them on clearance when I was going through a green phase.  I never really LOVED them, just kind of liked them.  But when we painted our room BLUE, they had to go.  

But I figured it was a waste of a perfectly good frame.  So...inspired by Meg...I decided to use some of our leftover wall paint and make our own pictures. 

Ta-daa!

Brit! You make me laugh! Those pictures are great! I love the palm trees, so pretty. Reminds me (and I'm sure you) of Hawaii...

I think that YOU are super crafty! I love the pictures that you painted on Ashlyn's wall. Isn't having this home to decorate so much fun!!
