To surprise my client who has a 4 month old boy, I asked her to put his jeans on him, roll them up a time or two and stand him up so I could snap this picture.
I then loaded it onto Picnik.com and neutralized some of the color. I added a border and the text in a font that I liked. You could do this with any photo editing program.
Here's the real sweet deal. CanvasPeople.com has a special where you can get an 8 x 10 of any picture turned into a canvas on a wood frame for FREE with a $14.95 postage and handling fee. So I sent this to them online and in a week I had it.
Now it reminds the people that enter, to remove their shoes, in a humorous way.
I just added a wood easel and it was ready to go into the corner shelving by the front door.
Let's talk about the framed words WELCOME next to the corner cabinet. I had this space to fill and luckily, I found these alpha letters on Etsy.
I framed them individually so they would take up more space and hung them vertically in this two story room.
After that I found a name monogram that I liked on Ebay and purchased that in two colors of vinyl to go above the doorway to the formal living room.
|This is how the room looked before I started decorating.|
