I guess it’s pretty common for homeowners to make improvements in their homes in spring and summer. The weather is perfect for it, and we have lots of daylight in which to work. As I mentioned last Friday, like many others, I’ve done several projects in my home, and this week I thought I’d share one with you each day. We’ll start with a simple one – a wall hanging.
This spring I showed you a little arrangement that I was working on in my living room. I used a very inexpensive frame found at Goodwill, and changed it to make a whole new look. You can find that post here. When I posted it, it wasn’t quite complete, and I promised that when I finished it I would show you what I had done. So today I’m going to give you a peek at the completion of that project.
Here was the unfinished grouping I hung next to the fireplace –
Because of what was on the other side of the fireplace wall, I needed another something to balance it out, but I didn’t know what! Then I came across this wreath tucked away and knew it was perfect!
It gave just the right amount to balance out the large picture on the opposite wall, plus it added a little softness to the harsh lines of the wooden frame and Scripture verse.
I must have tried a half a dozen different items before I landed on that wreath, but when I held it up there, I knew immediately that I liked it! Sometimes you just have to keep trying different items – pictures, mirrors, shelves, clock or wreath before you find what is perfect for a space. But you’ll know it when you find it!
Tomorrow I’ll show you the whole wall, and another bigger project that was recently completed!
Do you have a project you’re working on at home, or is there one you need to tackle? Why not put it on your list and whittle away at it before summer is over?
