And then for a long long time the wall was just blank.
We didn't have the money to do buy a huge art print and get it framed, I didn't want to do a lot of black frames because the rest of the room is so light and netural, none of my paintings worked in that room, yada yada....so I just left it blank until we could afford to do something fabulous.
Then lo and behold, I found the fabulous something that wouldn't break the bank, when I saw this post on Young House Love!
It's fairly affordable, it looks good and I LOVE horse art. And since I have a ton of photos of my horse (but none hanging in our house) it was the perfect solution!
I found a few photos that I had made sepia and jazzed up a bit earlier in the year, because they were so boring in color. And I thought that they would look nice on the wall since our room is all warm earth tones.

I'm really thrilled with how quick and easy this turned out. It was a great way to bring something personal and artsy into our house. Slowly but surely we're making our house a "home."
