Wall Art Bonanza


I've been in a bit of a crafting frenzy lately.  Most of it has been stuff to put on walls, which is fortunate since I happen to have some.  Walls, that is.  And so, it seems, do my friends!  So, a couple weeks ago my girlfriend and I worked together to make this fabulousness:


We followed Cheri's awesome tutorial on how to make it (for less than $10!) which I found via Lemonade Makin' Mama.  Follow these girls' advice and you will not be disappointed.  In fact, we loved 'em so much we made three!


What else have I been doing?  Oh yeah, I took this deeply discounted corkboard from HomeGoods:


...and turned it into my favorite thing ever:

This guy is huge, and lovely, and made me renew my vows with chalk paint.
Just yesterday I tried my hand at those awesome faux-zinc letters you've seen all over Pinterest:



I'm doing these in all our initials to adorn yet another Pinterest-inspired project.  More on that later.
And, in the meantime, I have been doing some of my monogram artwork to give to the new babies in my life:




You may also remember this one from ages ago that was for a little girl:



These monograms might be my favorite project of all.  I'd love to hear what you think about them...a friend told me I should sell them on etsy...what do you think?  What would you expect to pay for one?  Because I clearly need more projects, right!?!
