It's been three months I've been working to transform our living room . . . . transform it to reflect our family. Our family has changed so much in the last nine years and the prints I had from college or hand-me-down furniture just wouldn't do anymore.
So, for the last three months, I've been spying this wall and creating various items, hoping I could group them all together into something cohesive. And you know what? I'm actually happy with the way it came together.

As for the photos, I got the idea from Natalie's Sentiments. She helped me to discovered PicMonkey. It's a free site where you can have all kinds of fun editing your photos. LOVE IT! I will put together a tutorial for this one too.
This photo is so special to me and my husband. We had to put our Nala girl down over two years ago, and now we can see her again every day. Thanks for PicMonkey, she looks like the angel she was.
We had some very weathered fence posts sitting in our shed and so of course I thought, "Let's make a letter!" Well, I did and I'll share with you how I did just that . . . . in a later post. Ha!

Awhile back, on the front cover of a magazine , I saw that someone had taken old suitcases, cut them down, and made them into floating shelves. Ingenious. Well, I found six beautiful old drawers sitting at our local landfill (yes, I am one of those people that jumps out of the truck, wearing flip flops, to scrounge through the trash). I finally got around to making one of them into a floating shelf, and I'm kind of loving the interest it adds to the wall.
