i found a big picture inside a frame in my mom's basement. the picture was of lilacs. i have no purple. however, i got the idea to take everything out of the frame and use it for something else. the frame is really cool. it's a big chunky black frame with some cool detail. my mom obviously wasn't using it so after
the new plan was to spray the paint directly on the wall, then just hang the frame over that. we taped up papers around the area but neglected to protect the floor. after the last coat i looked down to see chalkboard paint covering the rented floor and tracking its way through the apartment all over the carpet. nice. UGH! so thank the LORD that cleaned up easily with some stain remover and warm water. we then had to add picture hanger thingies to the back of the frame since it wasn't meant to hang horizontally. all that was left was to drill some holes in the wall, put anchors and screws in and hang the frame. then we couldn't get the bit out of my stepdad's drill. so we waited until he could get it out for us (turned out we weren't just ignorant, he had to yank it out with pliers) then FINALLY phil hung the frame. this took us about 3 weeks to complete this seemingly easy project. sheesh. but here she is looking all cute and silly in our entryway:
yes, that is a message God wrote to phil telling him it's time for us to have a baby... even though it looks suspiciously like my hand writing...
see? it just welcomes you right in : )
isn't it annoying when a seemingly simple project goes all wrong and ends up being one of the most frustrating? at least it's all done and cute now and will probably make us smile and laugh for a long time to come : )
