We refer to the focal point wall I mentioned as the "wall of frames."I found this picture on Scissors the Rock Paper Scissors Events blog a while ago and was instantly wowed and inspired by the whimsically pretty white frames.

I started working on our wall not long after we got married and I moved into our apartment. My husband is very sweet about letting me add what I want to his former "manly"apartment. He admits that it feels much more homely now. To get started on my inspired wall, I got lots and lots of frames from Goodwill and a local antique store. The more different they were, the better. I then bought a small sample can of white paint from the home improvement store and got to work painting all our new frames. I'm sure our neighbors still curse my name because the only time I ever seemed to have time to hang the frames was after 10:00 at night. I tried to hammer quietly, I really did try. After all the frames were hung I was satisfied, for a while. The wall just needed something else though. My newest addition, the plates I decoupaged are just right I think. Now, for the finished result.
