Hello everyone! Hope you had a fantastic weekend? Last week, I was able to tag along on one of my husband’s business trips, and went to Laguna Beach, in California. Truly wonderful. Of course, when you’re in California, you have to take a picture of one of the amazing sunsets……
(Taken from our room…)
ANYWAY…about my post this week "CHANGE IT UP… MAKE IT POP"…
Have you hung a picture, and just know that it needs something to make it stand out on the wall.
I bought this set of English Hunt pictures for my dining room actually at a garage sale a few years ago, knowing full well that they were way too dark once they were hung. You know this, but just keep walking passed them until finally, you can’t stand the “wrongness” of them any more.
Because they were garage thrift purchase, I didn’t really want to spend $30.00 on actual picture mats, so I bought two sheets of white “Bristol Board” from the dollar store…..and made my own custom mats….
Even lying on the kitchen table, the white one looks soooooo much better…For contrast, I did keep an inch of the original dark green mat. I found it easier to cut with a pair of scissors, but if you’re good at using a straight blade, then do it that way….
(I did both!!!!!) But the difference is fabulous.
Now my English prints just POP…….(I’m a HAPPY CAMPER”!!!!)
Don’t be afraid to buy something because it’s not as perfect as you want it…buy it and make it your own perfect……
Have a great week……Until next time, Judy
