Our DIY Memory Wall

 So KR and I have been sprucing up the house.
A lot of you commented on my memory wall in some of my recent posts.
Well....back in the winter we decided we would start our own DIY project,
a memory wall for our kitchenette.

We spend a lot of time in this room and eat many meals here.
The kitchenette gets a ton of natural light and we both enjoy time together and alone at the table.
Kev and I both spend time at the table working, I blog, he writes, we eat, he reads, I write my therapy notes, etc.
Bottom line, we wanted to put something on this HUGE, bare and empty wall to spice up this room and make it feel more homey and comfortable.

here is the before....
the room needed lots of work.

and here are pics from this whole process

Now I have to say, Kev gets 90% of the credit for this project.
I picked out frames, but that is about all I did.
He did the rest. 

I didn't think we would ever buy enough frames.
We would think we had enough to only get home and realized we still needed a few more.

Kev turned some of the cheaper darker frames into country/rustic looking ones for the memory wall
The doggies supervised him in the garage

He nailed, hung, leveled and adjusted

We found this stencil and we were sold on it.
We firmly believe in family time around our table.
It's something we enjoy now and look forward to in the future when there are new additions to our little family :-)

And the after....

So there is still lots of printing enough pictures to fill all those bad boys.
Can someone say wedding and engagement photos??/
I think so!
It's still a work in progress.
I also need to add a centerpiece to the kitchenette table, but just haven't found something that has tickled my fancy yet.

Anywho, the room is coming together and I have to give the man credit because Kev did a wonderful job.

Hope y'all likey :-)

It's almost friday! Wahhhoooo
