TGIF everybody! I *finally* finished decorating the window wall in my craft room. Well, it's not totally finished, but I'm calling it good for now, until I decide what I'd like to do with the curtains, whether it's add trim, or stencil them. I don't know yet, but until I decide, I'm perfectly happy with it!
Bare with me... it's really hard to take photos of this room, much less of a window!
On the left, my lavish lime table now holds my Cricut Imagine (Anyone want to buy it? It retailed for $400 when I got it, but I think they're running less than $200 now #whataripoff. I want a Silhouette!) I bought the table at a garage sale with the intent to use it as a TV table on the other side of the room, but I think it fits so much better here! It's more narrow than the desk I had there before and just looks like it was meant for the space. I love it. Above the Cricut table is a large framed print of Steven and me with Mickey. I worked some Photoshop magic (a la this tutorial) using the colors of the room and had it printed at Sam's Club (less than $8!). I found the 18" x 22" frame at HobLob on mega-clearance (I think it was like $8) many months ago (seriously, how could I pass up a huge frame for that cheap?). The letters that spell out my name above the print are actually those plastic letters that businesses use on their signs (Big Mac $1.99, Kids Eat Free on Tuesdays... you get the idea). Those came from a local shop that carries all sorts of weird, repurposed things (for you locals: Warehouse 2120). I wasn't quite sure about putting my name up on the wall (could it be considered narcissistic? juvenile?), but I wanted those letters, dangit, and that was the first word I could think of that I could find all the letters for. Whatevs, I like it. They're just stuck up there with poster putty.
Last weekend, I came across some 1" strips of scrapbook paper that I had cut for another project (which didn't pan out) and thought "hey, I can make a paper chain out of those!" so that's what I did. Stapled them together, slipped them over the rod, and called it done. It took less than 10 minutes and I like it... until I decide to make some finger knitted garland.
Now this side is probably my favorite part of the whole room right now...
I got this clock for $20 at IKEA. It's like an old schoolhouse clock... except it's red. Douse anything in red and I'm guaranteed to love it.
These shelves are actually IKEA picture ledges, but I thought they would be perfect to hold my collection of glitter, as well as a red frame (with a photo of us in front of Cinderella's Castle), some Disney stickers I got at the World in '09, and another photo of us with Mickey at Animal Kingdom.
I didn't set out for this wall to have a Disney theme, but really nothing makes me happier than the old Mick-ster.
Are you guys as crazy about Disney as I am?
