Personalizing your room — more!

You asked for it, so here it is—visual examples of what I meant by personalizing your room in the video blog I posted last week. These are examples of what you can add to your space to make it "yours." See, I always listen!

Here are a few of my favorite pieces that make my space mine.

(This art was made by kids at Living Classrooms and I have three hanging in my kitchen.
They are in the cheapo frames we bought them in and cost $1 each. I love them for their simplicity)

framed A
(I found this "A" in our attic and painted it pink and "framed" it with an oval frame
I bought at a yard sale for a few bucks. I also painted that.)

wall grates
(These are old window grates I picked up at a flea market many years ago for $8.
I love the texture they bring to the room.)

mantle decor after
(A stained glass window we bought on an anniversary trip and old architectural pieces from
a Baltimore row house. I painted those, they were an awful blue.)

pet ar
(Black and white pictures of our dear, sweet & crazy dog. She was a great model, letting me fidget
and play with the manual camera for a long time, trying to get the "right" shots.)

plates on the wall
(Plates on the wall aren't a new thing, but
adding them to your room will be unique to your decor)

(Framed scrapbook paper, what could be easier and more affordable?)
