…It’s Easier Than You’d Think!
Marrying an amazing man but your plans are to move into his bachelor pad? How on earth are you going to mesh your girly stuff with his guy decor? Let’s face it, his ideas of home decor may not at the top of your design dream list.
He loves you, so I’m sure he won’t mind you adding just a few touches, right? It’s not like you have to stick flowers everywhere and paint the walls pink, for goodness sake. I suppose you could…but why not compromise instead and combine your style with his? One of the reasons you’re getting married is because you mesh well, right? So I’m sure your walls can too…
With a little help from Etsy seller Geezees, you’ll have your newlywed love nest redesigned in no time! Use your wedding vows, love letters or wedding pictures to create different sized custom canvas wall art. Stylish, unique and affordable wall design…that will work well with no matter what strange things your man previously decorated with!
When you invite your friends and family over, you’ll be proud to show off the place you’ll now call home! You’ll love it, he’ll love it, they’ll love it. Maybe you can even create smaller ones as gifts for your friends, family or bridal party. A little something special they’ll never forget. Cheers!
…An Idea For An Upcoming Shower I’m Hosting!
Next month, I’m hosting a wedding shower here in our home. The color theme we’re going with is black, white and red with a touch of damask. Since our living room and kitchen wall is a deep red color, I started thinking of how I could decorate it to flow better with the shower theme.
What did I come up with? My very own damask wall art! It’s very easy to make, and extremely affordable!
The above picture is just a little design I did from my computer to give you the idea, but here’s the plan:
Supplies: 3 black picture frames (I plan on getting frames already matted, or you could matte them yourself), 3 pcs. of damask 12×12 cardstock (or any black & white pattern), 3 pcs. of white 12×12 cardstock, glue stick, thick black marker or black letter stickers.
First, measure the frame. Then, measure and cut the 12×12 damask cardstock to fit the frame. After you do that, draw a heart (or any shape you wish) onto the white cardstock and cut it out, then glue it on top of the damask. Write, with the black marker, whatever words you want (or apply the black letter stickers) onto the white heart. Slide your art into the picture frame and wa-la! Instant, affordable DIY (do-it-yourself) wall art. Yay!
