One of my goals for the new year is to freshen up some areas of our home.
There’s a narrow wall on each side of the bay window in our breakfast room and these prints have been hanging there forever. There are two of them – one on each side of the bay window and they fit perfectly. But is was time to freshen up the look.
I painted the frames white and used pressed ferns for an overall cleaner and brighter look.
Instead of cutting a new matte board, I placed the new paper on top of the old matte leaving just the edge of the original border showing. Much easier than cutting new matte board.
The difference is amazing. The new prints brighten up the entire wall. I tried to get a photo of the entire bay window and both prints but there was too much sunlight coming in through the window – which I guess is the point of a pretty bay window.
Now that my first “fresh look” project for 2012 is done, I can’t wait to freshen up more areas.
Thanks for visiting.
