another little project!

back when i was planning our wedding, i bought these frames to make framed monograms for our gift table and the corner of our bar. while i still love the framed monograms, we don't really have a place where pink and green makes sense in our house. i love the thick white frames so i decided to re-use them to add some color in our kitchen. here are some pictures:






i just bought some modern-looking scrapbook paper that matched our kitchen and put it in the frames, then made a little design in photoshop and framed that between the two. i really love the interest and pop of color that it brings to the kitchen. what do you think?

I think that's a great idea! I was perusing the papers at Michael's for the same purpose! Great work!

Cute. I've working on different decorating ideas with scrapbook paper. I would like to get a bookcase and line the back of it with some bright colors. Also, on a different note, have you seen the previews for the Liberty of London line coming out at Target?
