Upcycle Home Décor with #DCWV

I started redecorating a couple of weeks ago and I started with the foyer since it was in desperate need of a makeover.  I originally had a tall ceramic pot in the foyer, but I moved it to the dinning room.  The table was in the media room and the lamp was in a closet and together they make a great combo, but the wall space was so bare.  I upcycled a trio frame with the help of  DCWV Premium Collection 12"x12" White kit and the 8.5"x11" Bronze & Natural kit.

The trio picture frame was also thrift store find for $3 and it's perfectly imperfect.

The frames fit 4"x6" photos; I trimmed the paper and burlap slightly larger and secured them with Scor-Tape to ensure they stay in place. 

It took me approximately 20 minutes to complete, 10 of those minutes deciding which paper to use.  Both collections have gorgeous laser cuts and patterns making it difficult decide, but love how it turned out.

Here is a close up of the upcycle frame:

I just love how my foyer is coming together.  There is plenty of wall space for some vinyl lettering, but I cannot decide on a saying.

Here's a different view.  Any suggestions as to vinyl lettering would be greatly appreciated.  Please share your suggestions below.

Very nice! The papers you ended up choosing match your foyer perfectly! I added a vinyl saying to the wall in my laundry room, which is the entry way from our garage. It says “Every Family Has A Story, Welcome To Ours” I think that would be a great saying in your newly redecorated foyer!

So elegant, Yolie!

How about "Welcome"?
