For a long time I have needed a little punch of color in my bedroom. When we first moved in, I was eager to nest: I sewed curtains, hung things on the wall, bought a few throw pillows and a couple lamps for my bedroom. However, as the newness wore, so did my creativity a bit. I used to love to arrange and rearrange my furniture, and I trolled for accessories like a huntress. After watching more than one picture frame or vase break by the hands of my well-meaning toddler, I gave up. Plus, it seems weird to only have the top half of your house decorated while the bottom half basically just has bumper pads and plastic outlet covers.
Anyway, my bedroom is fairly modern with very clean lines on the furniture. I have tried to make it a bit more traditional with the lamps and color. But it always felt a little cold. Tonight I found the coolest distressed painted beach wood frames though and I can't even sleep I love them so much. I have seen them at boutiques and at Swiss Days, but they are usually a little pricey. I only spent 5.99 a piece (I bought two).
So, I framed some cute pictures from our vacations last year... still couldn't sleep.
So now I am blogging about them.
I am a such a dork and because I still don't have a camera (buzzkill for sure) I can't post a picture. I did find this frame with is reminiscent of the look, but definietly not half as cute.My life: can't sleep because of picture frames. See what I mean about disproportionate excitement?
