I racked my brain for what pin to make my own. I dug through all my boards, rediscovered a lot of great ideas, and then found a few that had me all, "what the Hagrid was I thinking when I pinned this?" After a bit of hemming and hawing, I stumbled on a picture one of the most inspiring projects I've found in blogland. Is anyone surprised that I found it on YHL? Yeah, me neither.
Here it is:

All that remained was to fill a few more frames and actually hang everything! It made sense to me to hang the frames before filling them; that way I could see how everything was getting along. Part of the beauty of using newspaper to map out the wall was that the newspaper dummies doubled up as templates! I just laid each sheet on its corresponding frame, then felt for and marked where the nail(s) should go with a highlighter. I did this one piece at a time, replacing the newspapers on the wall as I went.
I also labeled each sheet with a description of the frame that it was standing in for. This one, obviously enough, was for my plain frame. After marking and replacing all the pieces of newspaper, I started hammering.
Here is the (not so) complete frame wall. Out of the fourteen frames/objects on the wall, only four are definitely staying as is. Most of the frames just have temporary filler, and some, as you can see, are completely empty. As unfinished and imperfect as it may be, I LOVE it! I smile every time I walk through the hallway.
|Well, done except for making it level.|
|I'll be posting about this tomorrow. This is my new favorite frame!|
Are you participating in the Pinterest Challenge? Do you ever go through your Pinterest boards and wonder what you hit your head on the day you pinned something? Have you ever used "Hagrid" to fill in for a curse word? Most importantly, do you know any good Mitt Romney jokes?
Happy Hump Day!
