Monogram Wall

Now I wish I could say I was cool enough to have come up with it on my own, but I am so not.  I was in spired by this post on one of my favorite blogs.

Here is what our wall looked like before (sorry for the glare)


and after:

my supremely talented friend, Heather made the silhouette of Leila {which my dad tried to steal right off my wall!} and will soon be offering custom silhouettes in her shop!  I think everybody needs one of their kiddo (or pet!) and it would make the most perfect gift!  She also helped me cover the G's with scrapbook paper.  Most of the frames were $1 or $2 in the clearance section at Marshalls that I salvaged with a little spray paint and sand paper.

Tony was in charge of the hanging and did not agree with my vision of having things tight together like the original one, so it's not exactly how I envisioned it, but I choose to pick my battles and that's not one of them I thought was worth an argument.  Oh, well!

I'm in love with my monogram wall!

You have the best ideas! And even if you didn't come up with the original, you have the talent to pick the best ideas. I love this, and so need to steal this! I was just thinking how blah our random collage frames look, and this is exactly what we need to spice it up!
