Lately, it seems that I have been posting a lot about food! Since my blog is about the home, I decided that I need to have a couple of posts about one of my other passions, decorating! One thing that I was wondering, "How do you decorate your walls"?
When I was single, and had my own place, I purchased some very nice pieces of framed art. My favorite piece was a picture of a church in New Orleans. However, it didn't seem to fit with the decor style in our current home. Thanks to a coupon from Hobby Lobby I was able to get the print re-matted and dressed in a new frame. It is amazing what this small transformation can do to update this beautiful print and complement our home!
Over the years I have noticed that my decorating style has changed. At one point I would have classified myself as a "country style decorator". Now, I would update it as modern country or cottage style! Either way, the point that I'm trying to make is that decorating needs to be on a budget if you're going to be changing things! It would be nice if money wasn't an issue, but today more than ever, we need to be thrifty! I have seen so many blogs that are sharing their thrifty decorating finds. Thrifty can definitely be beautiful!!
My favorite thrifty decorating item is my window! Or should I say windows? Some of you have commented about these before. I got these for free from my parents. After laying outside for years, they have been perfectly weathered! My Dad couldn't believe that I wanted to use these old items in my home. Well, after a little elbow grease, I think they are the best home accessory that I've got!
In our bedroom we have a cathedral ceiling. For the longest time, it has remained a blank slate. I just couldn't figure out what to do with this space. However, thanks to Upppercase Living, I placed the word "Dream" to fill some of this area.
Of course, pictures of your family members are always welcome throughout your home!
Here are a few more shots of my wall decorations!
