So ONE of the projects I have going on here is finishing my sons room. It's still a work in progress but I really wanted to show off this wonderful art I made! I'm in love and sooo tempted to put it in my living room instead!
After painting these fun stripes I've decided to decorated vintage school house fun! Kind of a Frank Lloyd Wright meets Lincoln (that's Lincoln my son, not the president :)
Saved from an untimely death! When my husbands family was cleaning out his grandparents house they almost THREW AWAY (gasp) these very old stencils that belonged to his grandparents. I was there to save them and to receive some wierd looks, until I told them my plans.
Basically the frames are simple black certificate frames from the dollar store. I didn't want anything chunky or distracting from the "art" itself.
Then I chose 3 neutral colored paper (chocolate, tan, and cream) to put behind the stencils so they stand out but again, not to take away from the stencils themselves
The stencils are gently used, but that's what I love about them!
Aren't they great!? After I put them up my husband and I looked at each other with the same thought.....so don't be surprised if they make their appearance somewhere else!
(anybody want to buy a rocking chair?)
