Framed Home Blueprint Art
This just in. One wall in our home is no longer bare!
Okay, wait, scratch that. I suppose I do have the city art hung in our master bedroom over our new dresser.
So now I officially have 2 items hung on our walls! #babysteps
So what exactly did we hang? Well, to explain I need to back track all the way back to our closing day in August.
We signed a big ol’ check (gulp), were given keys to our new home, and headed straight to our new place to officially walk inside as homeowners. The old homeowners left us a nice neat stack of information regarding the unit right on our new kitchen island, and as we rifled through we found (to our delight!) that they left us with the blueprints for the entire building.
These worn pages were back from 2004 when our entire building was planned and built.
Each page featured 1 floor of our 3 level building.
I immediately knew that I wanted to frame our unit for inclusion in our new home. What a cool piece of “art” to put on our walls?!
I found the large white frame from Michaels, and used a coupon to get the price down a bit. I like it because it has a nice thick border, which makes the worn pages pop against the white.
I love hanging this in our home, but it will be even more special when we someday move onto another home (in the distant, distant future!) and can look back at this place with fond memories. What a cool keepsake we will have forever.
2 pieces of art on the wall…many more to go.
And if you spy with your little eye a certain dresser on that short wall, I will be dishing about it tomorrow on the blog. So stay tuned…
