One of the walls in our living room needed a pick me up. We threw up some big pinwheels when we had our housewarming party to fill up the space, but it was time to think of something more permanent. I was looking around for some inspiration and found this picture.
I loved all the frame collages, so my roomies and I tried it out for myself.
We scoured around a few flea markets, I took a few from my mom’s house (thanks mom!), and of course, IKEA. We laid them all out on the floor first before we got them up on the wall. We left a few of the frames empty, knowing that we’d add to it as we amassed more frames.
We were a little short on art, to stick in the frames – so we made our own! Using a craft knife, we cut out one page from an old book, and then trimmed it down to fit into our frame. Then using my stamp collection we made a few different patterns and landed on this one. The frame is sea-foam green, so we thought a whale would be appropriate!
