Turning a House Into a Home, One DIY Project at a Time

I mentioned in an earlier post how badly I wanted to decorate to make my place feel lived in.  Well, I am finally getting around to putting something up on the walls!

I had my husband cut the wood blocks and I started painting.  These colors are a lot brighter, but I painted them the in the color palette that I want my livingroom: chestnut stallion, deep aubergine , leapfrog (green), hallowed hush (blue).   I saw this Eastern inspired palette in a Behr paint pamphlet and thought it looked quite modern, but the bright colors make it look fun.

To start, I selected various photos from our engagement and wedding and attached them using removable glue dots so I can change them as often as I want .  So sad that I’m just getting around to printing these out years later.

I used the velcro command strips to adhere the blocks to the walls for easy removal and positioning.

Et Viola!

It feels so good to personalize!

    1. Thanks and by all means! I cannot completely claim the idea as my own. I saw something similar in a DIY magazine. And even if it was my idea, I think decorating the walls with photos of good times/art is a must! -Nizzy

    Just this morning, I was thinking that our walls could use a refresher; now I have an idea thanks to you.
