~Frame That Wall~

This is such an easy decorating trick!
All you really need is one stick of trim board.
First, measure out how big you would like the frame on the wall. Then, paint your stick of trim! Cut the trim board (miter edges) and nail it up!
Another easy peasy project!
On this wall, which is in my foyer, I did take a polka dot stencil to the wall before my husband added the trim.
Just think..... This would look so beautiful in a dark color, with all mirrors!
I might have to do that sometime!

Oh, I have already been collecting items for the holidays!
Some for vintage bottle brush trees and some for the collage boxes!
Take a look.....

Don't forget to signup for my "BIG 100" GIVEAWAY going on right now!!!

Bon Soir Ms. Bingle,
Thank you so much for your sweet comments, and for following. You made my day, and I am following you now, too! Your framed wall looks awesome! I just love the polka dots, so cheerful! And the concrete bust is wonderful, too! I found one at a yard sale a few weeks ago for just 50 cents (I blogged about it, of course :) ), and was thrilled! I also checked out some of your previous posts, and I absolutely adore your Marie Antoinette cabinet! That is so cool! You should enter it in Frenchy's linky party on the 1st!

Good grief 105* and I thought it was hot here at 101*... I had a nice visit in Whichita Falls a few years ago but glad I'm not there in this heat.
