There was one last thing left that would complete the new vanity desk in my daughter’s room, and that was adding some wall art. I already had a frame that could work for this space; it’s a rectangular, modern, white frame with a mat for two inserts, that I often use for seasonal decor.
I intentionally had placed the new wall clock on the left of the vanity and had left just enough room for the frame on the right side. But I could not find something interesting to frame. I certainly did not want any quotes or wording of any sort since I already had the Pottery Barn inspired sentiment words on that same wall.
The idea came yesterday when I was talking with my daughter and she mentioned her favorite place to visit. I instantly thought of the frame. That would be something nice to frame, especially knowing that it would have sentimental value to her. But the frame had two inserts, so I asked her if she had a second favorite place, and thankfully she did!
I went on Google maps, and located her two favorite places on earth and their surrounding areas. I printed each one separately and cut them to fit the mat.
However the colors of the print-outs were a little too bright for this room, especially the blue of the sea and the quality wasn’t the best.
I placed it on top of the map, and drew a heart with a gold leaf pen, directly on the translucent paper and exactly where my daughter’s favorite place on earth is.
How easy was that? I could’ve framed anything, but I chose something that will definitely bring back a smile.
This little corner of the house is perfectly well taken care of!
Time to move on to some more diy in another part of the house!
