Happy Mother’s Day to Me
Yes, I know its November and no this isn’t an old post I’m just now publishing.
Ricardo finally finished my Mother’s day present, and I’m so thrilled. I asked for picture frame molding going up the stairs and under the chair rail in the upstairs hallway.
Here’s a post with pictures of what the stairway used to look like.
Under the chair rail I had stenciled some flowers that were cute, but I was sick of them. Also, the collage was kind of bugging me too.
You can vaguely see the lines I drew to mark out where I wanted the frames.
Using some decorative molding he made frames using my not-so accurate drawings. There was a lot of measuring and remeasuring.
It looked like this for a long time. Those little triangles were really difficult to cut! I was so afraid that he was going to cut off a finger. After all the molding was up, I painted everything white.
Here are the after pictures…
The oak banister needed to go.
I also decided to do a black and white photo collage. I love the way it turned out!
