Dressing Up A Wall....Deployment Project #7

I've been doing some remodeling here at home...

S-L-O-W process with a deployed husband and 2 small children at home for the summer...
But, the entire den is painted and I am finally getting around to rehanging things on the walls....

Here is a photo of what one certain wall looked like before the paint and re-do of the photos...

....Now, we have painted walls and I dressed them up!!!

...It took me a while to learn this, but things on the wall look SO much better if they are mixed with different shapes and sizes.  It gives the area you are working on so much more character!

By adding a plate, a cross, a letter, and different sized frames it gives the wall some personality, don't you think?

Another area that was driving me crazy was my staircase.  Excuse the photos, but there is NO natural light in my staircase....

...Blah...Blech...Bland...Boring...

But I went on Etsy and ordered a vinyl wall decal... I LURVE those things.....

...then I placed pictures with the same color frames in random places all around the decal....

NOW I have at least 2 walls in my house with some character!!!! It's a start!!!!

I love the way your stair wall turned out. I have one just like it I need to do the same thing with. Maybe after I finish the million other projects I've got going on right now LOL!

The stair wall looks stunning. They are always so boring. Mine has absolutely nothing. Great work!

Boy are you talented. I really enjoyed this. I have trouble posting a few pictures on here, much less doing whole walls. We will be in Charleston in Nov. for the Citadel Homecoming. Maybe we can get together somewhere. Love You, Gwen

Love it! Both walls look so nice! Inspires me to work on getting things up on our empty walls around our home.

your new picture collages look lovely!! good job.

i'm so sorry it has taken me FOREVER to get back to you about the tile project. i have never done a fireplace but i'm sure it would be beautiful. i have seen it done before and i've loved it. you may just have to make sure whatever tiles you choose would work near extreme heat!! good luck :)

I came across your blog and its really inspiring. My prayers are with you and your family. My husband isn't in the military, but he does work in the northeast (we live in TX) so we haven't seen him in almost three months. He will be home in a few weeks though. Thanks for sharing!
