As in most living rooms, you display pictures of your family and friends. When I found this wood cluster of frames at my local Michael’s Craft Store I knew I wanted to make it into a cool 3-D piece of art for the dollhouse.
I started by lightly sanding the edges. I then spray painted the frame. To add a little shabby chic flair I cut out a background from a patterned cardstock paper. I used Aleene’s Tacky Spray to attach to the wood surface. I love using this spray when working with paper because it does not give the bubbled up appearance under the paper like the thicker squeeze glues. I then hot glued a bead into the middle of each frame.
I placed a small amount of kneaded poster putty on top of each bead. Next I printed out 6 pictures of dolls of my daughter’s choosing. Each picture was 2 inches square. Those pictures were each cut out and laminated. I used self laminating sheets. Leaving a small margin, each laminated picture was cute out and attached to the putty. I love the 3-D look of the pictures. Plus, the photos can easily be removed and changed out.
I attached the frame cluster with Command Velcro Strips and hung on the living room wall.
Here are more living room ideas:
Google a landscape picture of your choosing, print and cut, and place in a photo frame to make a window. Accent the space with cute pillows; using iron-on decals for extra detail. The lamps photographed are locker lights from Pottery Barn Teen. The rug is a locker rug found at Toys R Us.
