Try This: Update Simple Frames With Gold Hardware

I am so freaking excited to share today's project with you! Not only is it the first wall art I've put up in my new home, but I think it's my favorite wall art project EVER.

Start by watching my video–

We teamed up with our longest supporters and friends over at Canon USA for this post. Specifically, we used the Canon PIXMA iP8720 Crafting Printer on their Pro Luster Paper for this one because it handles B&W so well. Plus, it can print up to 13x19, which was necessary for the size of frames I chose.

Watch the video above for all the basics on how I created this project. I found my simple white frames at Michael's and here's my campaign hardware
. If you don't want to use any tools, you can super glue these to the edges and just omit the screws. I used the super glue to secure them before adding screws (just makes it a bit easier). Just remember to let it dry 100% before continuing. Oh–and here's the ceramic planter set
I used to hang my plants.

I printed a combination of personal photos, one Dolly Parton pic and a couple prints from Arrow & Apple.

The finished wall is light and simple but still detailed and interesting. I love how it really fills up the space without being too busy. Our breakfast nook is starting to take shape!

It feels SO GOOD to start the decorating process. I can't wait to share more with you! If you have any questions about this project, leave them for me in the comments. And even if you don't have a question, I'm in the mood to chat, so leave me a comment.

Off to plan more GOLD projects because it's addictive! xx- Elsie

P.S. You can get $50 off the Canon PIXMA MG7720 Photo Printer by using the code 'ABM50', but you gotta hurry because the offer expires on Saturday.
