DIY- {Framed Wall Goodness}

My mums and sis…

have said things to me like… Ummm, “So jen what are you going to do with that frame on your wall?” OR.. So what are you going to put in the frame jen? Or… when are you going to finish this wall?” 

HA! SO THE MUM AND SIS totally know me..
However, what they are really trying to say is “I can’t believe Jen didn’t finish this wall months ago, that isn’t like her!” LOL! Really they would and have never pressured me with projects or anything of the sort. They just know how I am, and that I can’t leave anything un-finished. Call it OCD IDK. winks. Truly I had no desire to put work into it with a bean growing in the belly. Now that said “PORK ROAST” is here and during one of his long nap’s (bliss) I decided to finish the wall…. while the other rodents were entertaining themselves.

YOU SEE HERE WAS THE “BEFORE” it sat this way FOR WAY TO LONG!

AND AFTER! -happy MUM HAPPY sis!-

STUFF IN FRAME
The picture frames came that cool shabby color- from the $dollar store last year, I know how Marvy right? 🙂
the moss “L” I traced the letter on foam board and cut it out with an xacto knife, spray painted it green, and hot glued “3” different faux mosses to it. 
the Dream Burlap sign I got at Tai Pan Trading.
The white shabby metal tin I bought at a store and painted it white and roughed it up a bit.
the black poem plaque I got at a store called Krumpets in S. Utah, I embellished it with burlap flowers I hot glued on. 
The metal rustic star I got at the S. Utah mall in a Vinyl Home Decor store a few years ago, (forget the store name.)
and the mini burlap canvases are from Canvas Corp. and I embellished them as well.
I AM PRETTY HAPPY WITH THE DIY FRAMED WALL. Thanks for stopping in. WINKS-JEN
