my beautiful new wall...

it's been so long i've almost forgotten how to blog...
JUST KIDDING. but really it's been FOREVER again, i know i know.
i hope most of you haven't forgotten about me.
this is the LAST week with the puppies... HOORAH! then they go their new homes,
well besides one... he's still available if anyone is interested ;)

i've been having lots of trouble getting inspired lately. i've done a few things, but not like i was. i hope to get my mojo back after puppies are gone and i can just take care of 3 kids (yes, i included my husband in that) insteand of 9. that takes a lot out of you!

anyways, on to my project. you remember my book wreath here.
i could never figure out where i wanted to put it. i hung it in my bedroom (which is not decorated AT ALL, i mean we don't even have a matching comforter set but SOON!) but the walls are tan and it blended in. so i knew i had to move it. 

so i finally came up with this wall above my couch. it's been blank and so have i... UNTIL now =)

so what do you think?? YEP i L.O.V.E. it!!!

i've been stashing frames and finally got to spray paint them. i've been wanting to do this forever, because IT'S AWESOME, and finally got hubs to hang stuff (that's like pulling teeth for him) BUT we got it done, and other stuff (stay tuned, more posts i  PROMISE!) but it was easy so easy!! i would do it again in a second (might very soon, i am the WORST at rearranging things, haha, poor hubs).

anyways, hope your monday wasn't too horrible.


  1. Hi Brandi, I found you again on the Tuesday blog hop and am a follower of yours but haven't commented as yet. I love your book wreath and thanks for the tutorial. It's found it's perfect spot I see. I looks great against the blue. Hope you find a home for the last puppy and I look forward to your new projects once you become inspired again. Smiles


  2. Your wall looks great. The wreath is wonderful and I love the frames. I saw someone take her empty frames the other day and then put other things inside. They weren't framed art, she just put a couple of architectural pieces, a small shelf with a small statue and just various things. It was so clever. Yours look super. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty
