Wow!! That teacup clock is totally amazing!

Thanks for sharing the ideas!

Bek said...

gee whiz, most of those look like things I'd love to do... I've been trying to figure out what to do in our bedroom for the longest time. It may be time to experiment.

As always, thanks!

Well, do I have plenty of empty spots on my walls..... Maybe you should make some of those for me?

My toddler loves her teaset - that clock would be great for her. Except she'll try to "drink" out of each cup, and that could be an issue.

But I love the silhouettes from Time Out New York. So dynamic, so full of life!

Gloria said...

Sarah said...

This is fabulous! I am always looking for good DIY wall decor since the stuff you buy from the store is beyond crazy expensive. Thanks so much!

I appreciate the list-- I actually saw that Guardian article about the painted frames, and I bought a bunch of cheapo frames and did that project myself one rainy weekend. It turned out wonderfully if I do say so myself!
