Feels Like Home

January 28, 2014

Tonight I wanted to share a project I finished last weekend. My focus right now is on our foyer/dining room, and I wanted something to fill this wall behind our front door *without* sticking out too much where the door swings back. I kinda came up with the idea randomly both for aesthetic and sentimental reasons. 

I found the picture frames at Kirkland's, and the letters are from Hobby Lobby. I went with oil rubbed bronze, with hints of weathered gold. Gold is becoming an accent in the foyer/dining room area so I wanted touches here too. I spray painted the "O" gold just to jazz it up a little bit. For that I used Design Master spray paint in Gold Medal from Michael's. IMO it's the BEST gold spray paint out there. Let's take a closer look...

I filled the frames with pictures of places we have called home over the years. The top row is filled with our grandparents' houses, the second row our parents', and the third row is our townhome where we started out. In the beginning I wanted to hang two rows of 3, but ended up changing things up in order to not crowd the light switch and use more of the wall. It was a happy accident because things trickled down in chronological order.

I printed the photos off at Costco, and had them all edited to a sepia tone to look more cohesive. I love how they look all grouped together in the frames.

I have to say this is one of my favorite things in the house. Walking by and seeing all the places that have been home to us over the years just gives me the warm fuzzies everytime.

P.S. Yes we finally hung Goldie the ram over the office doors AND that's a new rug for the front door. More updates to come!
