New Bedroom Decor

There are a lot of changes going on at Our Fine House. Outside, we're creating a new patio in our garden, replacing the changing room by our pool and trying to keep our plants alive in this heat. Inside, we're in the middle of a major bathroom remodel, and we're redecorating our master bedroom.

I finally got around to hanging artwork in our bedroom. Since I had four shadowbox frames that I wanted to hang, I knew I needed to get my measurements just right. First, I traced a template of each shadowbox onto newspaper. On each template, I marked where the hanging brackets were placed.

Then, I taped them to the wall to decide how I wanted them spaced.

Once I was happy with their placement, I took measurements to make sure that they were all spaced evenly. I also made sure that they were level.

Then, I took my trusty hammer and nailed right through the newspaper template where I had previously marked the bracket points.

I then tore the newspaper off the wall.

Finally, my art was ready for it's new home. To create my artwork, I just placed black scrapbooking paper in each shadowbox frame. Then, I hot glued the sea stars and sand dollars to the paper.

We're working hard to complete our bedroom remodel and looking forward to
sharing all of the photos with you.


  1. WOW, you have all sorts of stuff going on at once at your house! I can't wait to see the finished results!

  2. I'm anxious to see the outcome of the bathroom remodel and the new bedroom decor. I remember your post awhile back that displayed the before and afters of the master bedroom when you first got the house. Talk about a complete transformation. Very great work. I can't imagine how you can get that beautiful, serene bedroom any better. But, if it's coming from you I'm sure it will be just as phenomenal.
