Have you ever started on a project that you thought would be super quick and easy and it ends up taking WAY longer than you expected? That’s been me with my Pinterest Challenge project. Remember this window that I got for free at my sister-in-law’s wedding? Well, I finally got to work on it on Sunday to create something like these amazing projects on Pinterest:
But it took way longer to clean this thing than I thought! I’m not sure how long the lady who gave it to me had it in her shed, but it was COATED in dirt, dust and cobwebs. After over an hour of scrubbing Sunday night I decided it would be easier to just wait until Monday and spray it with the hose, but it rained and I had a Bachlorette viewing party to get to ;), therefore this project was not completed in time for the Pinterest Challenge. Bummer!
So I sprayed it down on Tuesday and let it dry outside for awhile, then brought it back in to be cleaned, which still took awhile. Then I printed my pictures that I wanted to use and arranged them how I wanted and attached them with clear photo corners. The pictures I chose are of details from the wedding or distant shots. Since we already have a gallery wall in the master bedroom I didn’t want to overwhelm the room with pictures of people’s faces. Here it is all done, just not hung up. I bought a giant bracket to mount it on the wall but I want to make sure the placement is right where I want it before I drill that many holes in the wall haha.
I’ll post more pictures of it hanging up when I get the placement right. 🙂 How do you like it? And in the midst of all this I got coat 1 on the bathroom walls, it’s definitely going to need at least 2 more though…Linking up at Bower Power, Ten June, Young House Love, Serenity Now, The Shabby Nest, Home Stories A to Z, New Nostalgia, My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, Coastal Charm, Cedar Hill Ranch, The CSI Project and House of Hepworths
