Framed Objects Wall

Back in the last craft room I had a wall of frames with a quote in them.  I wanted to reuse the frames in the new area, so I sprayed them all yellow and gray.  I decided to go for a bolder, more interesting layout this time around and I added objects.  Here's how it turned out.

We laid out the frames on the ground first.  I'm way too impatient to do the whole make-frames-out-of-paper-to-test-the-layout-thing.  Once we thought they looked good on the floor they made their way to the wall one by one.

After all the frames were up I started hunting for random objects to put in them.  I actually found everything that's in the frames at Hobby Lobby (over a few different visits though).

If you can wait a little bit, there's nothing that doesn't hit the 50% off sale at some point there.  This pointing hand was in the spring section, but it was attached to a post and meant for outdoors.  I noticed it could be unscrewed, though, so I bought it.  I really like it.  Rather fitting that it's pointing towards the clock.  I have to try not to loose track of time while crafting :)

I tried to keep all the objects black (with exception to the red knob that I'll probably paint), so there would be a bit of continuity to the wall.  I think it's important to have some continuity when you're doing something a little out of the box.

The bird cage came from my nieces wedding.

The box was what the projector (that I turned into a lamp) came in.  The round vase was $5-6 at TJ Max. The doily was my grandma's.

The Ikea shelving was something we already had in the dining room, but now it houses my fabric.

I am really excited about the way the wall turned out.  I'm glad I decided to try something different.

I have had so much fun designing this space and trying to do it inexpensively.  The room is almost complete now.  Just a couple little things to do and then I'll post the whole room.

Thanks for dropping in.
