As I continue to putz around the house finding random projects to do, I can safely say I accomplished one today. About 14 months ago (that's over a year), I asked my father-in-law to make me a long shelf above my son's bed. I've harassed him enough, and I still have no shelf. So, I had to look into something else. This is what I came up with.
I found the "J" at Jo-Ann's fabric several months ago for 1/2 off. My son's name doesn't start with "J", but it was cheap, so I bought it. I painted it red and found some inexpensive oak frames to put around it. I then painted those and painted the mats inside them.
I covered two of the mats with some leftover fabric I had from the throw pillows. I simply hot glued them, so I could take them off if I want them back to khaki. I took some pictures in black and white, and I printed them off on my computer. Insert pictures, hang on wall, and VOILA! I've got some more tweaking to do to the rest of his room, and then I'll have some more pictures for you. Okay, fine. My son's name does start with "J". Had you goin', huh?
