Whew, sometimes the simplest projects can get complicated and time consuming in a blink of an eye. I had the hardest time finding gold 16x20 frames with a simple border and white matte. Bought and returned two different kinds from Amazon, tried Michaels custom framing and even with 70% off it would cost me $500 😳 The sweet lady at @michaelsstores understood my tight budget and helped me find these frames, gave me a discount and shocked me with the news that they can put the prints in at the store for only $5 a frame.✨SOLD!✨ Make sure and scroll through the pics to check out how the ladies at Michaels made normal store frames look custom ordered with stellar attention to detail and the addition of hanging hardware. Unfortunately I removed them so I can go the easy route of using @3m command Velcro strips. I tried to get them all perfectly in a row but ended up with lots of nails holes, tears and cursing before giving up and using my go to #commandstrips
So after 3 trips to the store and a revision from the Etsy shop they are finally UP on the wall to help complete the dining room makeover.
Those were the boring details and now for the fun explanation of each city!
Virginia Beach - I grew up there (which might explain my laid back beach bum no drama attitude)
Farmville - my husband was born and raised there, I went to @longwooduniversity there, spent the first 7 years of marriage here as well as became a family of 4 here and most importantly my husbands business is located there.
Richmond - we both lived here (at separate times), we had our first jobs out of college here, we spent pretty much our entire dating life there including our first date (a wedding at University of Richmond) and our older two kids were born here at St. Francis hospital - BEST hospital and nurses ever!
Raleigh - our current home for the last 7.5 years, where our youngest was born and our favorite city so far 😍
