My house is a daycare. Ok, it’s not really but that is what it feels like. I only (I use this term loosely) have 2 kids but the insane amount of toys we have would indicate otherwise. When one walks in one sees toys, crayons, books, a play kitchen, princess castle…you get the idea.
Eventually I would like to finish my basement, but that is an expensive endeavor and not doable for the short term. I could get rid of all toys but that would make the girls unhappy. The only space left to my control are the walls. I have had the same artwork hanging on them for 5 years, so I thought at the very least I can change up the artwork. That way, friends who enter can be temporarily distracted from the pain of having stepped on a Cinderella figurine 🙂
I thought about visiting a gallery or picking up some random framed images from HomeSense but then decided that it should mean something to me instead. Enter my pal Lisa, from Lisa POMROY Designs. I wanted some artwork for the girls’ rooms that documented the details of their birth (that way I can never forget them….mommy brain). I told her what colour scheme I wanted and here’s what she came up with… I simply have to find a couple of funky 8×10 frames and then I can put them up in their rooms.
I loved these so much that I decided I wanted something personal for myself and my hubby too. I once saw a poster in someone’s home depicting all the places that they had been together and fell in love. I asked my talented bud Lisa if she could make me something like it, and ya-ha, of course she could. I can’t wait to get this framed! Click on the image to see the full effect.
So while my home still looks like a daycare, I can at least block out the toys for a few brief moments in the day and look at my new artwork and smile. If you are interested in personalized art work for your own home, please let us know!!
Happy Monday everyone!
