Hello! It's Amber. I hope you are enjoying your Saturday. It's a gorgeous spring morning at my house. Last month my husband and I worked on adding mouldings in my hall! It’s so gorgeous. I just smile when I walk down it. We designed and built the mouldings on the left side a little taller so that I could have a collage wall and so the heads of the tall people that live in and visit my house won’t hit their heads on it.
The mouldings with a picture rail was one of my favorite things about my scrap room in our old house:
I wanted to have a mixture of items on the new picture rail, not just pictures. One day I was cleaning out Riley’s room and noticed the 2 + 2 = 4 flashcard and thought about that flashcard was like our family. Two adults + two boys = our family. I knew I wanted to add that to my gallery wall. Now that my wall was complete, I just needed to decorate so I mounted a few 11 x 14 pictures on foam core and needed one last thing to complete it: my flashcard décor!
I love the way the vibrant colors stand out against the chalk background. The embellishments (chalk art hand) are to die for and added such a fun POP to my project.
With the photo collage complete, I smile even more as I walk down the hall. And, with all the time you spend in a hall, shouldn’t it be a fun path to walk?
I have created an instruction sheet so you can make your own: Flashcard Decor
I demonstrated this project this past week on Good Things Utah. I thought you might enjoy watching it:
Remember that you can use any number combination to personalize the project and can adjust the size to fit any space. You can also use any My Mind’s Eye collection that fits with your décor. Have fun creating!
