New Year = Hallway Makeover = SIMPLIFY

We have taken a few weeks off from homeschooling, which means I have a few more minutes in the day to do something I want to do....decorate, redecorate and recreate our home. Isn't a home always evolving to what you want (at that time?)....I finally finished painting the hallway to match the playroom/schoolroom which leads into each other.  I took off all the old pictures and decorations and went SIMPLE...that is my new word for the new year SIMPLE!  I think it turned out nicely. I am thinking a large mirror for the opposite side...


UPDATE:  Just wanted to tell you all how I did this....I took close profile pictures of the kids, printed them, put a piece of black paper behind the picture and cut it out...mounted them and framed them!  EASY BREEZY...the vinyl I bought on ebay, but it was hard to put on and some of it is still not sticking the best, I might have to "operate" and glue some of it down...

Ca UU te! Love the names!
Your silhouettes look great! My husband made some for me a couple years ago. He used a similar method to what you used, but he used a laser cutter to cut them out of vinyl. You can check 'em out if you like. http://mynotsosimpledomesticlife.blogspot.com/2010/12/merry-christmas.html
I'm dying to do silhouettes of my kids. I've been putting it off, but you make it look so easy! Thanks for following me, I'm returning the love :)
