Recently I have found myself to be somewhat "crafty." This usually a clear sign that I have waaaaaay too much time on my hands, but here's what my idle time has brought for your viewing pleasure. 

Project #1: I decided to make some homemade wall art to hang above our bed. We are going with a yellow and gray color scheme, and you can see the art hanging on our newly painted porpoise gray walls! I love the color....but the room is still a work in progress. (I'll post completed pictures once we get everything done) This was so simple.. a little spray paint to transform the once $2 tacky gold frames and Microsoft Word... Ta Dah Art, i guess?!?  I got the idea from one of my favorite blogs, young house love. You can read about their monograms here.

Please excuse the crooked frames courtesy of the hubby!

Project #2: I've been trying to figure out what to do with all the leftover wedding paraphernalia, i.e. a FULL box full of Kizziah napkins, about 50 leftover welcome bags (how was I counting anyway?), and all of our various invitations. It seemed like a waste to keep it all neatly tucked away in a drawer, so this is what I came up with. All it took was a coat of spray paint on an old shadow box I already had, and a hot glue gun. I love how it turned out...

Here it is hanging with one of our favorite wedding gifts from a great friend. You can make your own here. This will definitely be our go-to wedding gift for all future nuptials. Whose next ladies??

So tell me what you think? Do you like my homemade works of art or is it a little too crafty for your liking?
