One more project completed!

So for starters, I realized that I didn't give Tyler credit for all his hard work.. He made these gorgeous pieces of furniture for me- from scratch!
This red end table
This TV stand (yes I know our TV doesn't do it justice at all). I mod podged with scrapbook paper to spice it up some.
He added beadboard to the cupboards and drawers of our office unit he built. And distressed it for me! You can never distress something too much!
The whole pic of the office unit desk. Isn't it amazing?!
Now onto the latest project- My family room collage wall was just missing something. I had this idea in my head for awhile that I found on UCreate and adapted it a little bit. I am so proud of myself for finishing a project and I can honestly say I made it without my hubby!
Hanging picture frames
I found plain 5x7 frames at Hobby Lobby, picked up some black lace, black beaded strand and headed home. I already had my paper and mod podge. I traced the frame onto the paper and cut it out a little smaller than my lines. I then used mod podge to glue it on. While it was drying I cut all my beaded strands the same length and made my bows out of the lace.
Then I sanded the edges of the frame and paper because my lines weren't perfect and I had to hide my mistakes!
I just used a hot glue gun to attach the beaded strand
Then I hung my nails and voila! It was so easy and it adds alot to the wall!
I also got my glass for the frames at Lowes- they have pretty decent prices! I know it is kinda lame to have that many pictures of just me and Tyler but I added some of our nieces and nephews and one day we will have a baby to put pictures of up!
