Inspirational Wall Art


I love Frangipani flowers -  love them...

Growing up, we had a couple of Frangipani trees by the swimming pool and when they flowered the scent was pure Summer...

So... now.... Im going to let you in on a little secret.....I have A LOT of pictures of them all over my house!!!!  (Don't judge me - I love them.....)

This little project started when I decided I had enough of my blah main wall in the living room. I wanted to keep my inspiring signs for a gallery wall on this side of the room


 So I painted them white, distressed them a little and put them aside for later when arranging the layout of the new gallery wall....


  Then one rainy day I looked up at my flowers and thought they looked a bit sad.....


Of course I cant leave anything alone, I pulled the pictures off the wall and laid the signs against them... It worked!!!! 

Out came the hot glue gun and my inspirational wall art was born...



Looks better right?


 Above the dining table I propped my "Believe" sign...


Now for a couple of my other Frangipani Pictures...


 I made these last year using a calendar, canvases and modge... they look fab in the corridor


 And this one propped on the top of my cube shelves....


Okay, so Im not going to admit to any other Frangipani pictures lurking in storage, but I hope you enjoyed my little obsession collection.....

Take care,

It's Overflowing

  7. The frangipanis remind me of my childhood too and I remember your flowers by the pool!
    I love how the white words not only compliment the pictures but also make the richness of their colour stand out too.
