My Little Nook Makeover
Do you have one of these? Since moving into this house 4 years ago I’ve struggled with decorating this little wall nook. I’ve changed it several times. From flowers to candles to photo frames, this space has been changed so many times but each time there has been one thing in common. I never really loved it. It’s just an awkward space in an awkward place. But, I’m happy to announce that I re-decorated (AGAIN) and this time I like it! I really, really like it!
First I cleared the area for a fresh start. This makes it easier to see the space and envision what I want to do.
Then I chose frames to fit and fill the space. I love these black square frames. Very inexpensive at Garden Ridge.
These are nice frames, but kind of plain so I added some ribbon
to jazz them up a bit.
for the tutorial on making these frames.
Next, I used my Cricut to cut vinyl letters to stick above the frames. For a tutorial on how to cut and stick the vinyl, click here.
I started with “family” but after placing the word I felt like there was too much wall space leftover. So I cut more letters using a different font to create “Our family est. 2004.”
So the wall was finished, now I needed to work on the shelf.
I started with my monogrammed apothecary jar (which I made in my fabulous MOPS group) and a framed 5×7 photo of hubby and I with Little Man #2 in the belly.
Liked it, but didn’t love it. So. . . .
I added our wedding photo (circa 2004) and changed the preggy photo frame to match the other (a little wider than the first so it fills in a little more space). Finished!
I have to say that, for the first time in four years, I really love this awkward little space!
