December 28th, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

Music Wall Art, Part 2

September 27th, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

Remember my first Music Wall Art idea? Well, here's part 2! My roommates and I had a large blank space over our couch that was driving me insane! I didn't want to buy any artwork from a big box store, so I decided to create my own.

Here's how to do it!

August 10th, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

One of the awesome ideas from Becky's 10 Ways to Upcycle an Old Calendar post was to frame a picture from a calendar. A few weeks ago, I was in a thrift store with my mom and she came across a Van Gogh Calendar from 2000. She encouraged me to buy the calendar and I'm so glad I listened! Now, I have a beautiful piece of art framed in my room for a lot less!
