Master Bedroom Wall Decor

I have been struggling as to what to do with the large walls in our master bedroom. I found this inspiration on Remodelholic and saved it as a favorite. I have been collecting picture frames for MONTHS....not sure what I was going to do with all of them. I knew at some point I would find a use. I am proud to say I have used every single picture frame I have bought.

I spray painted all the picture frames black. I used Lowe's .99 black gloss spray paint. They keep the cheap stuff hidden, but it works awesome!

Black Master Bedroom Wall

I decided I needed to lay out all my picture frames on the floor to figure out where I wanted everything. I then took an old Rachael Ray Magazine and cut out the picture frame size in paper.
Traced around each picture frame, cut it out, and taped it to the wall.
Here are the picture frames laid out with the papers over the top
All the papers taped on the wall

I'm very pleased with the end results. I have a "P" I might but on the green plate or inside the picture frame above the green plate. The two little pictures in the large frame are of DH and I as 1 year olds.


Samster is worn out from today. Our little boy does NOT like to get up early. He slept until 9:30am today. We took him on an hour walk, played hard with him, and then I took him on a walk to Sonic. He will sleep good tonight. :)

We had a wild night with our little man. He came home from Nana's daycare SUPER hyper. I called MIL to see if she had fed him candy all day. lol He then ran around the house like a crazy man for over an hour and a half. Then he got TOO hyper and started snapping. Art picked him up and put him in the bathroom for about 2 minutes. You would have thought Art screamed at him or hit him. He pouted for over an hour. He would only lay on me and wouldn't look at Art. Art sat next to him and he wouldn't look at him or touch him. Art picked him up and he came running to me. lol A piece of a hotdog fixed his pouting and he was Art's buddy again. Art said that Sam pouts like me. lol

He is trying to rest up a few minutes to go crazy.
Ready to go chase after the ball some more! He runs in the house, out the door, around the yard, back in the house etc.
Sam likes to run around the house chasing flies and eating them. Today at Nana's he chased a fly around the kitchen for about 10 minutes. He went whining into his crate because he didn't catch the fly. lol
This dog is like having a little toddler. He is keeping us on our toes and making us smile all the time.

Art has been sick all weekend with a cold. I have been taking lots of airborne to hopefully keep it away from me.

What's that smell????

We slept with the windows open on Tuesday night. Around 4am a skunk sprayed outside our house. It was AWFUL!!! The smell came into our room and woke us up. Here is the conversation that followed....

Art is out of bed walking around. I am still in bed "trying" to sleep.

Art: Did you poop the bed? - he starts lifting up the blankets checking out the bed.

Me: WHAT?!?!?! Are you sleeping still?

Art: I went outside and didn't see a had to poop or fart. - then he turned on the lights and starts looking in the bed & at my butt.

Me: Are you serious?.....get your butt in bed and stop asking such stupid question and NO I wouldn't poop the bed. geez!

Seriously does he think I poop the bed in my sleep? I am not a toddler or 90 yrs old. I was sooo mad at him at 4am for asking such STUPID questions. I did not find the humor in this until about 4pm the next day and then I couldn't stop laughing.
