I recently gave our guest room a very over due make-over. You can go on over to my other blog Olde Tyme Marketplace to see the results.
The tweeking however still contines, which to me is the funnest part!
This morning I was bloggin and I looked over to my stack of feedsacks (yes they share a room) and I saw this HUGE Quaker Oats one that made me think hmmmmmmm....
that bed really does need some more pillows ......soooooo before I went to work today I put this baby together and love how it turned out!
It took like 10 minutes. You gotta love easy schmeasy projects like this!So this is how I ended up with oatmeal in the bedroom!

I really like the texture element it gives the room as well as a bold graphic that still has a subtle way about it if you know what I mean. Am I making any sense here? At all? Hello?

I am happy! Plus there is one less thing in my craft/computer/spare/storage room.
Which happens to be next on the list for a make-over of it's own.

Aren't these the neatest? I wish I would have come up with this idea because that would have meant one very important thing.......I would have the COOLEST flash cards I have ever seen! Seriously, I have never run across these type ~ EVER! I love them, How bout you? Ever see these at flea markets ? Garage Sales? Auctions? Zip~ Zero~ Nada for me.
Anyway, I love how great these look in a grouping and how easy it is to pull off.
You could take any flash card really and frame it out like this in a shadowbox style and have a great look. Group like words together, colors, even numbers.
They would look great in any roon of the house and depending on how much you paid for the cards~ this could be a cheap-o decorating success!
Let me know if you try it!
