Master Bedroom Wall

First of all, thanks for all your kind and funny comments yesterday.  It's good to know I'm not alone in my odd idiosyncrasies.  Your comments all made me smile.  And I hope we can still be friends even if I don't like Pride and Prejudice.  (And maybe I'll try the Keira Knightly one some of you mentioned :)
Today I'm going to show you how I redecorated my master bedroom wall without spending a dime.  We are one a really tight budget right now, which makes it hard when you want to change things up.  Well, I had a couple of shelves on the wall before, but Rex accidentally pulled one down and the wall needed a change.
Here is what it looks like now.  (By the time I finished it it wasn't as bright in the room, so the photos are as clear as I wanted.)
Okay, let's break it down from left to right.  The first frame I already had from my college years.  The cage looking thing I bought several months ago.  I wanted to put it in the kitchen with fruit in it, but I didn't have any space for it.  So, it sat on my floor for a really long time.  Now it holds an vintage dictionary and some decorative balls.  (The cage was from TaiPan if you're in Utah.)

The giant leaf was a table decoration from a long time ago.  I didn't have a place for it anymore, but I still loved it.

So, I tied a string between the feet on it so I could hang it on the wall.

The vase was from HERE.  I had a frame that happened to fit around it perfectly.  I just removed the glass and hung it.
The tiny crate thing was from a thrift shop and I bought it several months ago for a buck.

I just added a little vinyl and left space to throw in a picture or a small object.

The patterned frames were from an old post I did HERE.  The door knob picture is one I took a while back, but recently just added HERE to my etsy shop along with another one that makes a great set with it.  I might still add a couple tiny things.  We'll see.
And there you have it.  A new look for free.  I like free.  My husband really likes free.
Thanks for dropping in.


  1. that looks so great! I never would have thought to hand that cage or the leaf, this gives me some ideas since I am trying to do something with a huge wall in my living roon. Thanks Cheri

  2. How did you hang the vase onto the wall?

  3. I like the Keira Knightley one, but if you're not sure about it, try "Bride and Prejudice". It's the Bollywood version, and it's hillarious! (And I love the wall, now I have one more excuse to try Tai Pan!)

  4. That looks awesome! I LOVE the crate frame. I couldn't figure out what it was until you broke it down. So cool. I love the cage too, I miss Tai Pan. There is nothing like that out here in Maryland. Maybe I can sneak over there when I come to Utah in August!

  5. This is absolutely GORGEOUS and so creative! Great job!

  6. The vase with the flowers looks so cool! What a unique idea!

  11. Love it!! I am wondering too what you used to hang the vase on the wall?

  12. I love the "I LOVE US" what a cute idea...I have a couple little crates and baskets I could try that on!!!

    Such a great idea! Thanks!

  13. You are so creative, I never never never would think to hang that kind of stuff on the wall. I love it! Now if I can just convince my husband that it would be cool :)

  14. That's a very cute and romantic wall.

  15. Kelsey adn Alison - If you follow the link to the vases you'll see they have a little loop on them for hanging. That's why I ordered them. I've never seen any like them before and I didn't want to have to devise a way to hang a regular one.


  16. great wall of beauties! esp love the framed hanging vase. it is fun to redecorate with the stuff you already have!

  17. Love it!!! I have a small crate like yours that was in my mom's kitchen as I was growing up. It is mine now and I have never been able to really display it. Thanks for inspiring!!!
    My mom would be proud if I did something like this to it and hung it proudly.

  18. Perfection : ) love it
