Remember a few weeks back when I showed you all my twist on the first-dance-song-lyrics-turned-wall-art that is all the rage on Pinterest?
Remember when I showed you a couple weeks after that what happened when I finally completed a project I’d been procrastinating planning for more than 5 years and cut up my wedding dress?
Well, it finally dawned on me that I never showed you what I actually did with those projects once I had them done. Which means I haven’t shown you why I love my favorite chair even more these days.
I mean, how could I NOT be totally in love with a perch that lets me take proud little glances of this throughout my day?
I blame it on owe it all to Pinterest. Before I found my newest obsession joined the site, I had this random idea in my head about wanting to frame that back piece of my dress. But that was where it began and ended. When I first started seeing the various twists on song lyrics wall art pop up, I was intrigued. And suddenly, it hit me.
Some of my favorite photos from our wedding are of our first dance; there is just something so magical about that moment when time stops and the only thing that matters is the man whose arms you’re in, twirling around the floor to a song that seems to have been written with the two of you in mind.
And, with that, that five year old some day project was all I could think of. Now that I had a plan for exactly what I wanted to do, I couldn’t get started soon enough. I was flat out giddy over how the boards with the song lyrics and quote turned out. I gushed incessantly over how much I adored my framed dress. And when I added some photos from our first dance and hung it all on the wall, I literally jumped up and down with glee over just how much I loved the finished project.
It’s been a few weeks now since my afternoon with the hammer, and I can’t stop obsessing over it. I adore that this tiny little vision that I had lurking in the back of my mind for all of these years has come together to this wonderful display.
