I’m tired of looking at myself….

We have so many framed pictures of us around this house, it’s a little ridic.  Seriously.  I think I went a little crazy right after we got engaged and framed every engagement picture and then every wedding picture.  I stuck a picture frame in every empty nook and cranny of our house. 

Well, now I’m a little tired of looking at myself.  But I don’t want to get rid of all my picture frames.  So I thought I would start by taking one of them and giving it a little update.

I started with this picture frame:


That’s the hubs and I in one of our engagement pictures.  Sweet.  But it’s feeling a little outdated.  Our engagement was so 2008!

I contemplated painting the frame white or gray, but I like the drama of the black {for what I was using it for, anyway}.

As you guys heard, we finally got a Hobby Lobby.  So of course I went as soon as the doors opened!  While I was there, I found some cute scrapbook paper and a “bling” W {our last initial} sticker.


I cut out a piece of the scrapbook paper to fit my frame, stuck the bling W in the middle and put it back in the frame.


Simple & elegant.  Just the way I like it! {And I don’t have to stare at myself anymore!}

And it looks good on our entertainment center shelves in the family room!



That’s about all I have time for these days.  Super simple.  Super quick.
