I cant tell you how many times I have heard the words " You are such a Martha Stewart" (haha) I just love crafting, diy, painting, sewing, and home decorating. It gives me great satisfaction to look around my house and say " I MADE THAT!"

Modern Vintage Art Redo

  I just finished this project yesterday, and I was too excited about it to wait until next week to post it! I loved Abby's Modern Vintage Art , but I wanted to add some of the teal color into it. At first I was just going to change the bow in the little girls hair to a teal one, but slowly I ended up change everything. (Isn't that how most projects turn out). Well you know me, enough chit chat and on to the pictures ;)

  I LOVE the soft airy feel going on in her room now!

Here are some closeups of each piece!!!
   I added the same trim I used on the Ric Rac Cuff Sheets over the black velvet. I think it looks like a completely different frame with the teal finish on it!

  For the Little Girl, I changed out the background to one that matches her Photo Art Blocks. The color is a little darker in this picture than in real life.

  For the Little Boy's picture I changed out paper to again match the Photo Art Blocks. Then added a pink bow tie!

   I LOVE the way these turned out!!! From the teal distressed frame to the real metal keys and locks ! Much better than the before paper version!

  This cute hair bow holder I made yesterday to go in the middle, it fills the space so much better than the smaller frame. I hot glued the ric rac on the inner grove of the frame, then added the lace across the back.

  Here is a close up of the fabric flowers I added to the bottom corner! :) They make me happy, and Abby too. She keeping going in her room and saying ooooh pretty flowers. :D

    One last picture of that side of the room! It is finally coming together.

  Oh I forgot I haven't done a post about her closet makeover ;) Well that is coming soon my friend.
I have a few more projects I want to tackle still.
- new curtains
- old mantle shelf with knobs
- lace bunting

  I am so excited to see how it all comes together! :) Tell me what do you think? Do you LOVE the pink and teal together as much as I do?

Thanks for stopping by,

  9. Lovely job! and even the inside of the closet! it's way to pretty to shut the door (little girls room are the most fun to decorate aren't they). I'm thrilled for you to have found such joy in being a good wife and mother. Keep up the great work! I'm looking forward to see what project ideas you come up with next.

  10. They are both gorgeous! Can't decide which I like better! Thanks so much for sharing with the Pink Hippo party.. can't wait to see what you share next!

  11. Very cute!!! How do you plan to connect hair bows to the ribbon on the frame? Is the ribbon not attached all the way across the fabric?

  12. How big is your frame for the bow holder? I love that idea!
