The bare wall next to the stairs leading upstairs was begging for some color and a little bit of love - and after I was finished with it - it got both! I added favorite photos and mementos, using thrift store frames, some colorblocked in pastels others in solid gold, blue and pink. I also included some vintage finds from Scott's childhood that I fell in love with after a search of his parent's basement earlier this summer, as well as some of the girls artwork - of course!.
I used the same layout plan that my Mom used here to ensure the spacing was right and to make hanging easier - just a nail through the top of each piece of paper!
Once I was confident with the layout I whipped out the hammer got to work!
|Lots to hang - not all made it! A little blurry - sorry: )|

|My cute feather princess Hadley, and mini cars from Scott's stuff - I flipped a small painter's canvas over and hot glued them into it!|
|Layla's paint pressed handprint, a vintage embroidery hoop and this portrait print, neon pink half moon "art" by yours truly - I will post the simple instructions for that next week!|

Have a lovely weekend!
