This weekend the "picture hanging" bug got me, or as my husband likes to call it - the "putting a lot of holes in the wall" bug.
As you know I have been working on my craft room for the past month and it was time to hang some pictures around to complete the space. I love doing this on the cheap and using things that I already have. So that is exactly what I did this weekend.
My favorite project was taking my Compassion 2011 calender and recycling it into art.
So I made this:
The total cost was $5 for the canvas at Micheal's. I used thumb tacks for the burlap photo, acrylic paint I had for the canvas, and adhesive spray for the photos.
I was able to create these little embroidery hoops of fabric for the wall space in-between the desk and craft table. I have seen this all over on pinterest, and knew it would be perfect for this space. Both hoops ended up being about $4. And the fabric was just some scrap I had from my kitchen benches project.

And after being out of college for two years, I finally got both our diplomas hung ! YAY! I mean they only cost us like $217,000!
|I guess the better the school, the bigger the diploma|
And that's it! The room is coming together! Don't you love productive and relaxing weekends?
Made by You Monday!
