it’s a cinch {gallery wall items}

Hey, hey!  Happy Hump Day!

Right now I am on a flight to Miami…or waiting in the airport for my delayed flight.  I would say there’s equal probability of each option.  Sigh.

But there’s a cutie patootie nephew at the other end of the journey, so I’m stoked either way.  You saw a sneak peak of #5 here.

Who am I kidding, that post was in November so the only people who saw it were #5’s dad – because I sent it to him, my mom, and maybe 3 others.  😉

Aaaanyway, I thought of a few more It’s a Cinch ideas for you.
Remember those stencils I used for the signs?
Well, I actually used them as decor in the gallery wall.
I just think they’re pretty cool … copper … attachable (to each other) … the perfect little bit of metallic in a pretty organic looking gallery wall.  Dare I call it juxtaposition?  😉

The frame was actually another Goodwill ugly beauty.
 Nothing a little paint couldn’t fix.
And a little poster putty (as I learned from my dear friend Sue to be the appropriate name for the orange tacky stuff).
Or, what about gluing some sort of nature to painted cardboard in a frame?

Could it get any it’s a cinchier, really?

These are just random pieces of different types of coral (not alive…please don’t ever touch live coral!) that I’ve picked up around this little island.
The frame is an old one my mom gave me.  And the backing is just cardboard cut to size and painted.

Are you aware of how wonderfully cardboard paints?  Just wonderfully, I tell you.  (Who even talks like that?)
And I used the same adhesive I used here.  And voila!
Easy peasy and artsy fartsy!  🙂

Or … oh, check out these ideas from ReFresh ReStyle

Debbie covered up seasonal wording on a vase in a really easy upgrade here.  And, that crafty Debbie also made these little Easter treats…did you say chocolate and peanut butter?  Yes please!

And due to my little trip (please let me be in the air over the Atlantic right now) I apologize for being late to respond to comments…or anything else for that matter in the next few days.

  1. Wow, this was a cinch….and gorgeous! I’m now inspired!

  2. Karah,

    Enjoy your visit! You’re giving me ideas for additions to my Gallery Wall and that’s great, because I’ve been treating it as a “real art” only kind of wall, and it needs more flair and personality! Given how you’ve got me thinking, maybe I’ll find out that “It’s a Cinch” is possible 🙂 Don’t waste a second responding to this comment … your assignment right now is having the best family visit ever!

  3. My goodness, your gallery wall is so full of great projects! Just when I think I’ve seen it all, you reveal another fun idea! I love the copper letters AND the coral!

    I hope your having fun with number 5 by now!! No need to respond to my comment at all. Just enjoy your time with the cutie! 🙂

  4. Such a great idea! You’re getting a lot of mileage out of that gallery wall 🙂

    Hopefully your flights will run smoothly … and on time!


  5. I live in Miami too. Have a great trip. The weather here has been gorgeous the last couple days. Kathy

  13. Now THAT’S cool looking! I hope I can find some metal stencils in my garage sale ventures this year!

  14. Those stencils are so cool — how great that they hook together too! You did a great job on the entire wall.

  15. Love the stencils and the way you’ve displayed them. The whole wall is very attractive. I stopped by from Debbiedoo’s and so glad I did.

    Hope you have a wonderful trip!

  16. What is so delightful about your gallery wall is that you have so many unique goodies on the wall! The stencils are a big fun element! I am thinking of putting a gallery wall going up my stairs. You are very inspiring!
