Every year when I take down the Christmas decorations I have this crazy urge to redecorate everything in my house.
I'm not sure what it is about taking down my decorations that causes this but it happens every single year without fail.
I wish we could rearrange the furniture in our living room but we have one of those living rooms that can only go one way. Believe me I learned this the hard way when I was in my 3rd trimester and LARGE and decided our furniture needed to be moved RIGHT THAT MINUTE and tried to rearrange it by myself. Luke walked in and flipped out on me. Apparently its not advised that pregnant women push heavy furniture. I didn't care I NEEDED A NEW LAYOUT.
After about an hour or two of pushing and standing back to look we decided that the furniture only looks good one way. Bummer.
So this year instead of moving our furniture only to move it back to its original place, I took to our walls. I decorated when we moved into our house in March of 2010 and everything has stayed the same since then. It was definitely time for an update.
I mentioned in December that I had become CANVAS CRAZY and ordered several through good deals I found on the internet. I've had several people ask me where I got them. I got them from Easy Canvas Prints they have the best deals and the quality is amazing.
I had originally planned to group all my canvases together on a wall in our living room, but ultimately I didn't like how it looked so I decided to use them throughout the house to change it up a bit.
I'm sure you will be tempted to pin every picture but you must know that every pic was taken with my iPhone so they are SUPER AWESOME quality. Proceed if you must. (I sure hope you sense my sarcasm?)
First I added this table (that I got at Hobby Lobby) in our entry way. I've always wanted an entry way table and the start of a new year seemed like the perfect time to add one! And then of course the sweet canvas from Eli's 3 month photo shoot. I mean HOW SWEET IS THAT BABY?
That canvas is a 16x20
Next is our dining room. I've wanted to change it up in there for awhile but I didn't know what to do. So I decided to do a smorgasbord of "stuff" if you will. Lots of various things are now on this wall including the canvas of Eli on the bottom left corner:
That canvas is an 11x14
And last but not least one of our family pics from Eli's 6 month pics and also the picture I used on our Christmas cards. I hung this in the hallway and replaced our engagement picture. I moved that to our bedroom. It just seemed more appropriate that way.
That canvas is an 18x24
I've taken a bit of a "time out" 'from ordering canvases. I know I will want to order some from Eli's 1st birthday pics so I'm just holding out (and saving money) for those.
I love changing things up around the house, it feels so refreshing!
