Photo Clothes Line

Here is my final project that I created for my daughter’s dorm room, a Photo Clothes Line using  Dyed Clothes Pins – I wanted to have a way for her to hang pictures of friends and family easily. Especially since nothing seems to be sticking to her dorm walls I was able to hang this project up easily with push pins.

Photo Clothes Line (1)

First I created three different photo clothes lines for her to hang photos and such from using these cute little Floral Frames Framelits. (Framelits aren’t really designed to cut anything other than paper, but I decided to take the risk and give it a try and it worked).

Then for a touch of the whimsical I added butterflies using the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die. I simply used my Crop-a-Dile to punch some holes and added some silver wire that I could bend and shape the way I wanted across her wall. It wasn’t the floral wire that I have used in the past, but since I couldn’t find any last minute on the way to Milledgeville, I figured this would have to do in a pinch. I’m not really happy with the wire so I’ll replace it the next time I visit with the floral wire I found afterwards.

Here is a closer photo of part of the photo clothes line hopefully you can see the butterflies better. The room is really narrow so it was tough to get a shot straight on of the entire thing.

Finally I used the Dyed Clothes Pins I made to hang the photos that I attached to my coordinating photo mats. Kaitlin seems to be happy with the look and final splash of color to her room.

And of course Dad wanted to make sure his baby girl had a picture or two of him – lol. So here is one of them he chose from this spring in her graduation dress on with Larry’s other baby, his 1969 Cutlass. (Poor guy, he’s not missing her at all, ya right – he keeps asking me if she has called. I know he is counting down till fall break!)

Does this dress look familiar? It should, it is just like the one on the cover of our catalog – just in Calypso Coral. Something Kaitlin rolled her eyes at when I pointed it out to her.

This last photo is of her seating area and the finished French memo boards I showed you in an earlier post. She now has lots of different places to tuck her mementos and items she wants to save.

Kaitlin seemed very pleased when she got back to her dorm room and found I had spent some time cleaning, organizing and hanging up things while she was at class. I know she is really spoiled, right? But between her finishing up the season with Drum Corp, her heavy class load, and chest pain I felt I could spoil her a little. Even her suite mate thought that it was pretty cool of her mom to do that for her (Whew right, didn’t want to embarrass the kid!)
