That’s right, mamas. This post is a two-for-one.
And I’m sooo excited.
Because I love the way it turned out.
You know that feeling when you finally complete something that’s been hanging around in your head for months, and it turned out the way you pictured it? You’re all, Yaaaaay! Kids, come look! Or at least, I am. 😉
I’m also excited because I’m getting to offer you two things:
a set of FREE PRINTABLES
a little DIY tip for a very inexpensive way to jazz up your walls. (As in… less than $5. )
Months ago, I bought some frames on super clearance from Michael’s, because that’s how I roll. I loved the look and scale of them, and I knew I wanted them to fill the void on the wall behind the TV.
So I finally got around to creating the artwork for them. (Because that’s also how I roll.) I love old type, and I knew that’s the look I wanted. Putting words in them was also an opportunity to use scripture in my decorating.
Words are powerful, people. I chose these words as a reminder to myself, my family, and all who enter that no matter the size, style, or beauty of a house, it’s the family’s reliance on The Builder that matters.
We all need reminders, right?
I love how Matthew Henry’s commentary calls Psalm 127 “a family-psalm.”
This scripture sums up so much of what we are trying to do with our lives, and what are trying to teach our children.
If you’d like it on your walls, too, click the free downloads at the bottom of the post.
You can use them as they are, OR YOU CAN MAKE LARGE WALL ART!
You will receive them rolled and ready to frame! (Choosing the lighter weight paper means you will need to be careful not to wrinkle or tear them, and you will need frames with glass and backing.) You may have to cut the excess paper off around the border, which is marked, to achieve the true size for your frame. They give you some grace when they print them. 😉
The exact frame that I used from Michael’s is currently out of stock, but I will be adding a direct link to it once I see that they’ve restocked them. In the meantime, HERE is a very similar one from Amazon that I love.
To download or print both pages of the verse, use these two links:
EXCEPT THE LORD (free printable)
THEY LABOUR IN VAIN (free printable)
[Be sure to select portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal) in your print options, depending on the orientation you want.]
If you need a *reminder* to do this later…
here’s something for your Pinterest board:
Because, we all need reminders, right? 😉
