Hello there! I'm sure by now you've all heard about the neat Waterlogue app. It turns any pic into a watercolor. Did y'all know you can even print them out? Well, lately I've been thinking of switching up the pictures that are on either side of the window in my dining room.
Here's a quick "before" pic...
See those little pictures on either side of the window? The frames didn't match and it just seemed like I needed something a little more substantial on that wall because the ceilings are so tall.
So, I stepped outside and took a few pics of my backyard. Then I uploaded them to the waterlogue app and changed them into a watercolor. I followed Richella's tutorial HERE for printing out waterlogue pics. It worked like a charm!
I just uploaded the pics to Walgreens.com and picked up my prints an hour later. It was only $2.50 for an 8x10. Then I went to Hobby Lobby and picked out some matching frames (on sale, of course) :)
Here's what it looks like now...
So much better, don't you think?
I like it a lot better with the bigger (matching) frames. Looking at this pic above, I think I need to spray paint the scrolly thing above the window oil rubbed bronze. It was originally ORB, but I spray painted it heirloom white back when our walls were dark brown so it would show up. Now that we've painted the walls a lot lighter, I think it needs to go back to the original ORB. What do you think?
Here are some close ups of the waterlogue pics I printed out.
I think the one below is my favorite.
And I love that for $2.50, I can print more out and switch them up any time I want.
Do y'all have the waterlogue app? Have you ever printed out any of them? Most of the time I love technology, but sometimes, I just want to scream "STOP INVENTING STUFF!!" Lol! It's really frustrating when you JUST get a new cell phone, tv, etc. and then, what seems like only weeks later, they invent a "newer" "better" version. Ugh. Does that bother anyone else as much as it bothers me? :)
I have lots of good stuff coming up for y'all. I've been busy making little changes here and there around the house. I added a little bling to my bathroom, finally got the plate wall up in the dining room, we just got new living room furniture (bye-bye leather!) and the new hardware for the kitchen cabinets is supposed to come Wednesday.
I know it's been forever since I teased y'all with the kitchen cabinet sneak peek. We ran into a problem with the cabinet knobs we ordered. They were on back order, then they were on back order AGAIN, then they told me it would be ANOTHER 6-8 weeks before they MIGHT come in. Ugh. Well, I couldn't wait that much longer, so I picked out new ones and ordered them, and they're supposed to get here Wednesday, so hopefully I can get the big kitchen reveal post up soon. The hardware is a pretty big part of the reveal and makes such a difference in how they look, that I didn't want to do the reveal before we install it. :)
While we've been waiting on the cabinet knobs, I've been keeping busy with other projects and even decided (last minute) to add some furniture legs to the kitchen cabinets. So, you'll have lots of good things to see in the final reveal. :)
So, stay tuned...I have lots to share in the coming weeks!
