Monday Made It - Home Edition

Howdy everyone!
I hope that your weekend was fabulous! Mine was busy busy busy - in between Father's Day dinner with my fiance's family, going to Tucson for a night, meeting up with a friend, and a concert - I'm pooped! Good thing for summer vacations to recuperate on Monday...

It's time to link up for Tara's Monday Made It!  After my vigorous Pinterest searches, I found this pin and knew it would be the solution to my drab walls.

I went to Goodwill on their 50% off sale day and picked up some horrendously ugly frames. I already had the spray paint so the total cost of this wall art project was around $7, score!


I love how they turned out! It was super easy and has a big impact on a big empty wall.  I wish I could have found some frames that had some different shapes, but beggars can't be choosers. 

Just remember to take ALL of the staples out. I was a little too lazy to get the needle nosed pliers out again on the long rectangle and now every time I walk by this it drives me NUTS! Don't be lazy, don't be like me.

 Have a great week y'all!
