A Framed Letter



Last week I told you how it was difficult for me to take all of my photos down upon advice I've read from Realtors and home stagers. You can read about it here if you missed it.  I never put a photo in one of the frames on my night table and didn't want to put it away because it is so pretty.


 It's a big heavy frame and holds a 4 x 6 photo. I felt a little silly leaving an empty picture frame out even if it was pretty, and I started thinking... that a letter would look good in it.

Up to the office I went to print a black capital letter R in 250 pt in the Times New Roman font on cardstock ...

... cut it to size and put it inside the frame.

What do you think?
I think I like it! The best part about it is that it didn't cost me anything :)

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  3. I think it looks great! I just LOVE that frame. I'm always looking for that kind but can never seem to find one that isn't ridiculously priced.

  5. I actually did the same thing but not for staging- I liked the idea of having it with our family picture wall! So I say keep it even after you move! It looks great! :)
