Create Your Own Story Wall

Every little thing on this wall means so much to me.

Special days, lyrics, favorite pictures…

It’s our story…literally from the day we met, to our most recent family photo.

It’s all there, with plenty of room to grow.

Plenty of room to fill it with even more of our story.

Ready to tell your own story?

Here are a few quick tips to get you started.

Enjoy,

Nikki, In Stitches

The “M” in the center is just a pre-made brown paper mache letter from the craft store. Give it a coat of black craft paint, let it dry, and then put on a layer of Martha Stewart’s Sterling Metallic craft paint…it will look exactly like punched metal.

You guessed it…the wood is all stained with my favorite tea, vinegar, and steel wool technique!


Those square frames…they aren’t really frames. Use your imagination when roaming the aisles of your craft store. Unfinished blanks from the craft store, with a piece of canvas textured poster board inserted in the center…instant (and simple!) frame.

The dates in the frames are metallic silver vinyl. I know what you’re thinking…but vinyl doesn’t stick to canvas! Nope. It doesn’t! But give the canvas a quick coat of paint, and it will stick on there forever! I use Martha Stewart’s Wedding Cake White…it’s a perfect match for the color of the blank canvas!

Because I know you’re going to ask…the dates in one “frame” are the day we met, the day we were engaged, and the day we married. The other set are our children’s birthdays. (And I Believe by The Four Tops was our wedding song!)
