Hi City Farmhouse friends, it’s Emily from The Wicker House. I took a little break from blogging during the Summer, but now that my boys are back in school again I have a bit more time to work on new projects around our home, like this one that I am really excited to share with you today. I have used fabric to create a stylish look to an otherwise boring picture frame that sits on my picture ledges, it is an easy gallery wall update that is very affordable.
Family photos can bring life and meaning into a home, they can tell a story & make an ordinary space feel loved and appreciated. A few summers ago I had an amazing photographer friend of mine Michele Kats take photos of my family & I at the beach. It was a place I spent a lot of time as a child, as did my father and then my own when we moved back from Colorado. I felt so blessed leaving the session, before even knowing what they would look like. These memories continue to be a gift for us as we cherish looking at them each and every time. I have printed a few here & there but to be honest I have always wanted to do something bigger with them. I am excited to be partnering with Minwax on this post as a part of their Made With Love campaign. Today I am going to show you how your family photos can become art & a beautiful focal point in any space, along with a really easy way to create a DIY frame. The fun thing about this project, I brought a beautiful memory that spans 3 generations into my home and did it all for under $50.
Hello City Farmhouse friends! It’s Emily here again from The Wicker House! I have a really cool project that I am excited to share with you today, string art on the wall.
Sometimes ideas come to me in the middle of the night and I lay in bed thinking, “Wow! That’s an awesome idea, did I just come up with that?” But truthfully I feel like the inspiration comes from another place and that it is up to me to create it and share it, therefore the credit does not belong to me, but to the universe :). This string art wall project was one of those middle of the night ideas.
The beach is our happy place so when designing Jack’s room I knew I wanted a modern coastal feel and since he LOVES ocean life it was a win, win for both of us. I am not much of a theme person when it comes to design but I did want to bring in coastal elements in a modern way, yet still have it be fun & playful for Jack, who just turned 6. I also wanted it to be meaningful and a great way to do this is by adding DIY art. I saw THIS print and knew I could create something myself that had significance for our family. I started scrolling down my iPhone pictures from last summer, looking for the right seascape and colors & bingo, I found it-the one. I knew it would be perfect for my DIY Modern Coastal Print.
Are you ready to make some DIY art? This entire process is SO easy! I kid you not, if I can do it, then so can you! Here is how to create your own modern coastal print….
