*please excuse our mess, still cleaning up*
so i was correct! the living area is much much brighter with the lighter paint ( of course it could have been the sun bouncing off the snow outside ) and the chalkboard wall did not diminish any of the light! i even moved around my furniture and it looks so much bigger - i don't know why i did not move it that way before?
i also added a new way to display photos in the living room - i got the idea from here
and for right now i just have plain little wood clothespins and some old random pics from my photo box. i would love to do the Polaroids but i don't have a Polaroid camera but i will be updating those pics soon hopefully with pics of family and friends that have come to visit ( so if you come to visit be prepared to have your photo taken! ) i also plan on adding a second wire below.
DIY: super easy to do!
What you need:
- picture hanging wire * i bought some with a coating around it and i would not suggest using this kind, it was very hard to bend! * ( 2.00 at walmart )
- two screw eyes ( .98 at walmart )
- clips to use for hanging ( wood clips at walmart for 1.50 )
see how super easy that is? i am sure i do not need to explain how to hang right?
