Only took me about 15 months, but I finally managed to put something together on this wall. First we painted it green. Then, 9 months later, I picked up a free shelf at our church swap meet. I nailed it to the wall, half-painted, and set some stuff on top. Then Sara from A Vintage Poster sent me that sweet little orange elephant print. I knew I wanted to put some pictures on that wall, so I picked up some cheap frames at Michael’s, but I felt overwhlmed trying to figure out what colors to choose in order to coordinate with the already existing green wall and orange elephant print. Is there a website for this? I decided that my best bet was color explosion, so I grabbed some bright blue and yellow paint.
Here you can see T1 at birth, 6 months, 12 months, and 18 months.
I’m not sure I’m in love with it. In part, because I just kind of threw the frames on the wall without measuring, and I think the shelf is too far over to the left, and the frames too far over to the right. It also feels a bit cluttered. Maybe the frame the elephant is in needs to be painted white? Oh well, it’s good enough for the 6 months we have left.
This is my sidekick. He desperately wanted to nail holes into the wall, but I wouldn’t let him.
