Who would have thought that having a list to work off of would make me so productive?! I should have made a list a year ago.
So, if you haven’t figured out by now, the Subway Art is hung, so I can finally show it to you!! And it’s ca-ute. You are forewarned.
Jessica from Craftily Ever After use to make these cool printables. She even had a little shop where she sold custom prints. She was so kind and made me this custom Subway Address Art using all Ben and my addresses we’ve lived since tying the knot almost 13 years ago.
I uploaded it to Costco and had a huge poster printed of it. The poster was around $9 I think. I rummaged through my stash of crap I should probably give to goodwill and found this picture frame that I took out of my friends trunk while she was on her way to drop it off at goodwill. 😉 One man’s trash…
All I did was print the art from Costco, spray paint the frame, and then put the two together. Easy peasy.
I primed the frame first, then gave it a coat of yellow. I don’t remember the name of the yellow because I painted the frame months ago. Yes, it has taken me MONTHS and months to put a nail in the wall and hang the art. Totally pathetic.
The print was a tad too big, so I just cut it down to size. Again, pretty easy.
Now, just put the two together, and voila. Custom artwork. Why this took me a good 8 months or more to hang is beyond me. I guess I just didn’t know where I wanted it.
* There isn’t really a blur through the middle of my art. I blurred out my address to keep all my stalkers at bay. It’s no fun trying to stalk someone when they just give you all their info. Gotta make ’em work for it.
I found a perfect spot in our gameroom for the art.
I almost didn’t show you because of how much of a disaster the gameroom is, but I’m all for keeping it real.
When I get around to Phase 2 of to-do projects (oh yes, I have a new list starting for yet another list of crap I need to finish around the hood), this window will be top 5. I just forgot to add it to my first list. Thank goodness, ’cause that list was too long anyway.
Here’s a wider angle of this little desk area I’ve created in the corner of the gameroom.
Total mess, right?! I know. It’s awful. I hate showing you guys this room. It’s a hot mess fo’ shizzle.
Well, if I’m going to expose myself, I may as well just do the Full Monty.
It’s a “home decor” bloggers nightmare. I lose all credibility in this blog when I show you guys this room.
Besides being a complete mess (kids!), the decor, or lack thereof, is awesome.
Unfortunately money doesn’t grow on trees, so this room will just have to wait. But anyway, doesn’t the subway art look good?!
Well, whatever. I’m pecking away at my to-do list and I’m feelin’ so productive anyway.
So, how is YOUR to-do list coming along? I know you have one. Tell us how much (or little) you’ve done lately.
