I had been looking for a mirrored window for a LONG time. Time and time again I would browse the "large frame" section of my local Goodwill and then I FINALLY found it! It was once a peachy, beige color, I guess you could call it neutral? Didn't matter what color it was...in my mind it was going to be white. I painted it kinda rough/shabby because it was just that in texture. After it was complete, sans letters, I put it up in 4 different places.....yea...FOUR. It just wasn't right in any of the spots or rooms that I had envisioned. Sitting at my kitchen table pondering over my dilemma, I looked up and it hit me like a pie in the face. My breakfast nook! That's where it belonged! So up it went with some shifting of other things to make room. I stared at it for days thinking it still needed something. The finished product shows you just what it desired...our family of four. :) I love this wall so much and now I feel like it loves me.
Don't be afraid of the cliche that has been attached to letters or words or phrases scripted on your walls. I feel like it's the best way for me to express what is in my heart, especially on days when I shouldn't but do forget to say it.
Today is the perfect day to create something with someone you love....or like a whole lot. :)
Have a good one!
