You guys. I am so, so excited about the art I just hung up in our master bedroom. I’ve thought a lot about what I wanted to go in there, and I wanted more than something that “looks nice” to hang over our bed. I wanted something that had some meaning behind it, but was also really unique and fun. I was on Pinterest the other day (shocking, I know) and saw this from View Along the Way.
The letters are from 163 Design Company- aren’t they awesome?! They’re wooden with canvas over top. I absolutely love the wording because that is my very favorite hymn, but I already have something with “It is Well” on it in our entryway. Plus, that wasn’t really in keeping with what I wanted in our bedroom. I’ve been wanting to incorporate our wedding song, “Stand by Me,” into our room somewhere, but I figured I would just frame the sheet music and frame it. Then, it hit me. I contacted 163 Design Company (they were AMAZING to work with and crazy fast), and they created me a little something custom for our bedroom.
I am obsessed. I may have stood there for a really long time staring at it and smiling.
Not only was this project budget-friendly at under $100, it was also a surprisingly simple process to hang them up. I laid the design out on the floor, first. Then, I measured the width of the design and figured out where the center was. Then, I put up a painter’s tape guide and made sure that was level. Then, starting at the center, I worked my way out and up. It was really nice to have my sister here to help, that made it go much faster and helped to get things level. I discovered that my secret super power is being a human level- I was shockingly accurate!
I hung every letter with a command strip (the letters aren’t heavy, so it is pretty secure). I was going to paint them to match our wall, but the canvas color was really close, so I saved myself that step. Plus, I liked the detail of the actual canvas a lot.
I absolutely LOVE the way this turned out, and I love having a little piece of our wedding day in our bedroom.
Do you have your wedding song displayed somewhere in your home, too? Did you frame lyrics or do something different?
