Grace at HomeHi everyone!
I have been enlisting Mr.Bluebird' s help in sprucing up our front entry hall. It has taken a few weeks to complete all of the steps, even though it was a very small project.
This is your view as you move through our foyer. Our den is to the left and the little hall leads to our kitchen. The hallway is small with two doors on the right - one to a closet and one to the basement.
Below is a view from the kitchen - the den is on your right from this vantage point.
One night I was browsing Amazon.com (for the first time - but not the last). I found four farm house style prints for the whopping sum of $8.50 with free shipping. The set includes a rooster, sheep, pig and cow. This was my inspiration! I also picked up four frames. They were black, but I painted them cream.
Mr. Bluebird helped install some metal label holders on the frames and installed an assortment of fun drawer pulls onto a 1x2 board.
The board was new. I distressed it, painted it with random swishes of cream and orange chalk paint. Then I finished it with dark wax. Mr. Bluebird added the knobs.
I added the metal label holders to the frame to customize the plain style. After printing numbers that are meaningful to our family, I swiped some dark wax onto the paper to give it an aged appearance. Love this detail!
Mr. Bluebird thought he was so clever taking my picture! Pictures of yours truly are few and far between on my blog, but I will indulge him just this once!
And there you have it: my fun new "art installation." All for a total of $50!
I've made a list of supplies and sources for those who might be interested.
