A Quick and Easy Bathroom Shelf

So it’s obvious by our new summer pillows that we made a recent trip to Ikea.  And though we still haven’t finally bought ourselves a new purdy Hemnes tv stand, we did also pick up a new shelf for our bathroom.

Monday we unveiled our updated bedroom with a new pop color, Kermit Green. And you may have noticed the new artwork above the bed.  Let’s take a closer look.

Jack Frost Swap ~ Inexpensive Art

So the trend seems to be to take your favorite Christmas carol and use your favorite lyrics in some mantle artwork.  Most of these have been in the form of chalkboard art.  I decided to take a different direction to create an inexpensive piece of artwork to replace the somewhat creepy artwork that I had… Continue reading Jack Frost Swap ~ Inexpensive Art
