Projects (Liz, this post is mostly for you!)

I've been itching to do some DIY projects around the house. I worked on some this weekend, which I will post about when they are complete. Tonight I did a quick project to make a new wall hanging.

I've had this wrapping paper since my birthday in December (thanks, Strem!) and knew I wanted to make a wall hanging out of it. So, tonight I gathered the wrapping paper, a sage/olive green mat that I've had for over a year, and a black frame that Chris had in the basement.

First, I cleaned up the frame a little. Then I cut the wrapping paper to fit the size of the mat. I taped the wrapping paper onto the mat and put it all together.


I love how it turned out! We hung it in our dining room, where it ties in well with our black dining room chairs and the green in our living room.

*Liz, notice what's on the table!?!? Yes, some apothecary jars! Chris bought these for me this weekend on his trip. Isn't he great!?!

I like. I especially like the jars. Too neat. I don't know that I've ever seen any of those.
