A Couple Home Decorating Updates

Our house doesn't really have much of a hallway. But there is a decent sized wall leading into the hallway, from the dining room, that I had a couple frames with pictures from our wedding in.

This is what it looked like before.

And here it is now!

I just used the same frames, but hung them going up and down instead of side to side. I took the wedding pictures out and added pictures of Jackson. I have a ton of great pictures of Jackson and I wanted to be able to display them somehow and thought this would be a great way to do that. My Sister-in-Law had gotten me the Family Frame for my birthday, so I added pictures of our little family of 3 to it. Then the "S" I got from Hobby Lobby for 50% off (making it around $5). So this was a very inexpensive re-do on our little hallway wall.

Here's a close-up.  

Then I also bought a clock for our living room over the weekend. I had been wanting something to fill this blank space for a while. I had gone back and forth on what I wanted to hang there, but I ultimately decided on a clock because we didn't have one for our living room and with feeding and nap-time schedules for Jackson, I thought a clock would be helpful. So I found this one at Wal-Mart and really liked it. It was the size and color I was looking for and I loved that it had several words on it like, Family and Love. It goes really well with our living room decor.

So those were a couple of things that I got done over the weekend that I had been wanting to do for a while. Have you done any fun home updates lately?
