Monogram

I had seen these at Michael's for more than $30.00 each, so when I found them on clearance at Wal-mart last fall for $9.00 each I bought the three that they had. I was so proud that I hung them evenly all by myself above my bed but then didn't know what to put in them. While I love oval frames, I don't think just any picture looks right in them. I considered bird prints but couldn't find any. So there they stayed, perfectly hung but empty.


Then I thought about doing a monogram. Three frames are perfect for that and I just needed to find some scrap book paper I liked and make the vinyl lettering to fit.


I just love the font I used. I'm redoing my bedroom and if I want I can always change out the paper to match and make new vinyl letters. Instant artwork for little $$.

That is so cute! I love how you did a different letter in each frame. Love it.

Thanks for the headboard tip! I will have to prime it so I will see if white looks good. If not, I'll paint it black. :) Thanks!
