So with the exception of the Wooden Wall Art, there is absolutely NO wall decorations in our bedroom. None. It is so plain in there! Plus, the theme is grey and white with yellow accents. And I've been itching to add a new color for a while now.
Anyways, I've had an idea for a while now for some art work to go over our bed. The song that Skyler and I danced to at our wedding was "You and Me" by Lifehouse. I wanted to incorporate that into our home. It was the perfect opportunity to bring in a new color... AQUA! It was really easy to do too. I took 3 12x12 blank canvases. I painted them first with aqua paint (took 2 coats). Then I found the font I wanted to use. I used Pea Ellie Bellie that you can find over at kevinandamanda.com (LOVE their site!). I printed it in a 300 something pt font. Then I flipped the papers over and colored over the back of the letters in a white colored pencil. When I flipped back over, I simply traced the letters on the canvases, which left a white outline that I needed to paint. Then came the fun part.... carefully painting the letters. It took about 30 minutes to paint all the letters, but it was totally worth it because I fell in LOVE!! It was even more amazing once I put it on the wall!
I absolutely ADORE the aqua in the room. It really brightens up the space! And I jazzed up some $16 lamps from Target with yellow ribbon and aqua flowers I got from Michaels.
Had to update my Wooden Wall Art with the new color too!
All the changes only took a few hours and I was beyond happy with the results. Skyler's response? "It looks nice." I told him I was going to need a little more enthusiasm than that. To which he replys, "It looks AMAZING Courtney! I'm so proud of you!" He's learning so well ;)
So.... What do you think?
