And by "cat" obviously I mean Blair. And by "mice will play" I clearly mean redecorate. At least I didn't rearrange furniture or do anything too drastic. I just took the wall from this (notice the wall with the window)
The bird was one of my grandmother's Christmas tree ornaments, and I made the wreaths from branches off of one my forsythias.
I really thought I had actual before pictures of this wall. Turns out I don't, but I think you can get a pretty good idea from the top photo. Anyway, there were two paintings on the wall in cheap frames. I took the paintings out, cut the cardboard leaving a four inch "border" around, and wrapped them in burlap.
I'm not completely finished with the one on the right. I think it needs a little more "something" to even it out with the one on the left. See what I mean?
Yeah, me neither in this picture. I really need to figure out how to take good indoor pictures. Here's that close-up again of the one on the left.
I love this bird! The one on the right is completely bare still. However, I do really like the direction I'm heading with the little change up. They're the kind of frames I can change up with the seasons and won't feel too bad about getting rid of once I have some really great photos framed and put there. And the wall painted. And new curtains.
