I found this quote board at Pier 1 Imports this past fall and immediately upon seeing it, I had to have it. Everything it mentions is like fresh air to me! Who doesn’t want to dance in the rain or eat a cupcake? And then wisdom dispersed throughout was simply icing on the cake. It was a must-have for me. After putting it up, it needed something else to frame it and make it stand out; it was getting lost on a wide wall. My husband had unused wood planks sitting in the garage so we decided to use them to add interest. I wrapped each piece in burlap (as if I was wrapping a gift), using a glue gun along the way to ensure a tight fit. My husband then took large nails and pounded them into the wall. The outcome was exactly what we wanted: Rustic to match the overall feel of the plaque and complimentary to the rest of the room. Now, a few large framed pictures on either side of it– pictures of the girls (or maybe my husband and I) doing some of the things this quote board suggests. So fun!
** I should add: The colors of the plaque against the wall color seems a bit off, however, the quilt that I have on the bed in this room pulls it all together.
