My Martha Project

This week's theme at the CSI project is Martha Stewart!

I love me some Martha Stewart crafts.

So I saw this picture and I knew just what to do!


Well it is pretty self explanatory... and that is what I like.


I got my frames.



I got my primer



Then I got my green spray paint.



Then I got my glaze out.


I forgot to take a picture of this process.

But I channeled my inner karate kid and wiped on and wiped off.

I am sure you get the idea.

The frame details really popped with the glaze




I heart that frame.

Now where to put them?...

I thought about the foyer going up the stairs, but decided I didn't have enough frames for it to look good.

So I decided to put them in the guest bedroom.

I always put that room to last. I don't know why.

So here is what the guest room looks like before.





and here it is with my new frames!



I can't wait to see all the Martha inspired projects this week!

Visit thecsiproject.com


I will also posting to these parties.

What a gorgeous wall! I am taking this idea from you and Martha and doing this on my bedroom wall over my dresser. I need something but didn't want just some more art. Thanks for sharing!

That makes the wall so eye-catching!! Great job!

Kristi said...

Wow! That looks awesome! I've been grabbing framed mirrors at GW whenever I see them. We're redoing my daughter's room sometime this summer and I was planning to hang them over her bed. Now I'm thinking I should just use the frames.

liz said...

love it, love it, LOVE it! i want to come sleep there! i may use this idea for the "headboard" in our guest room. we just can't decide what to do with it.

Nikki@KreativeKnack said...

Teresa @ ♥ TOO MANY HEARTBEATS ♥ said...

But I channeled my inner karate kid and wiped on and wiped off.

TOO FUNNY!

Those look amazing! You really did an outstanding job. You are really talented. I {{heart}} anything design/decor related. It has truly become a passion of mine over the last few years, especially since I became sick and began spending most of my time confined to my bed/recliner. It helps brighten up my day.

I'm stopping by from SITS. You were above me in roll call and I'm really glad! I wanted to say hello and share some comment lo♥e.

I really love your blog, especially the name! It sounds, oh, so familiar. *sigh* I just became your newest 'Follower' and can't wait to read more of your posts. I enjoy to meeting new bloggers, especially fellow sisters in Christ. I would be really honored if you would take a few minutes to check out my blog and follow me, too, if you like what you see.

Have a really wonderful week!

Blessings,

Teresa <><

Ann Marie @ Twice Lovely said...

That turned out so cute!! I love that bright green! I would love to see another arrangement with the same frames in a less symmetrical arrangement as well. Maybe someday, when you get tired of it this way you could change it up. :) Make sure to post pics if you do!

Kim said...

Love it! The color the arrangement, wonderful.

Painting those frames green was an excellent Idea!! They look so pretty grouped together like you did.

How pretty! I love the green punch of color to match the throw pillows! And it's really nice how your design is almost symmetrical, but not exact. Perfect!

Absolutely stunning! I love that color of green. If you look at my post for the mirror art in my bed room, you'll notice it's surprisingly similar! (although your pictures are way better!)

ellie g said...

I have been vowing to do the empty frame thing for months. The guest room! Tah Dah! Genius. That's where they need to go. And I might even need to do a little green. It looks amazing.

Everytime I channel my inner Karate Kid, I end up sweeping someone's leg....and I get disqualified. Boo!

Hattie said...

I love the color green you choose! I think the frames add just the right pop of color and focal point above the headboard. Great job@

Van said...

The results are so sophisticated, you did an amazing job warming up the space and adding some structural elegance with the painted frames. Nice lime green color, too!
