I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

As I have mentioned before, I am slowly transforming our guest bedroom in to Elly's room (right now she is in a little nursery near our bedroom). This is one more wall hanging that will go in her room. I used basically the same technique as this name wall hanging.

first: print off the picture you want to use. I printed it on white card stock paper, so that it would have extra thickness and not wrinkle when I put glue on it.

second: spray paint a piece of wood. I used a scrap piece of wood and trimmed up the picture to match the size.

third: get out your mod podge and coat the piece of wood with the glue. If you use anything other than mod podge, you should do a test sample first to make sure it won't wrinkle the paper. Mod podge did not wrinkle the card stock.

fourth: after you have placed the photo on top of the glue and have let it dry thoroughly, use sandpaper to rough up the edges.

fifth: go over the photo with a thin layer of mod podge to seal it.

sixth: I spray painted some eye hooks and just screwed them in to the top of the wood.

seventh: tie on a ribbon so that it can hang on a nail. Or you can just lean it against the wall on a dresser or attach a piece of wood on the back so that it stands up.
