Happy Saturday! I hope you guys got to sleep in today because I sure didn't! We took Emily to see Disney On Ice last night and she didn't even go to bed until almost 11:00 pm but STILL was awake at 6:00 am this morning, ugh! Send help!
Anyway, I really want to share one of my favorite small shop brands with you guys today, Highland Hardware! If you haven't heard of these guys you're SO missing out. Highland Hardware was started by Jenilyn Petersen. Her love for interior design led her to start designing these beautiful frames, all while being a mother of FIVE! How in the world, right? Total #momgoals!
We received our 30x30" acrylic frame two days ago and I literally couldn't wait to put it on our wall. I had planned out exactly where to out it, it fits perfectly, was so simple to put up (I did it by myself), and looks friggin' amazing! It's so unique and such a stand out piece in our home now, I just love it.
The process to hang this frame has been made so easy. I was at home with the kiddos so I didn't have an extra hand to help hold anything and I didn't have a tape measure to help either, haha, so I winged it. While the acrylic sheets were on my counter I just used a piece of scotch tape the length of the bolt holes, stuck the tape to the wall and used my kids' books as reference guides to make sure the tape was centered. Once I knew the tape was centered I used a level app on my phone to make sure it was level then held up an acrylic piece with one hand under the tape while i marked points with a pen to screw the bolts in. I know, talk about winging it, right! Once you have your bolt screws screwed into your wall you simply screw the other part of the bolt into place with the acrylic pieces between them and BOOM, about 15 minutes later you're finished and you have an amazing statement piece.
We've had a few friends over and family to hang out with the kiddos and every single person is amazed at how gorgeous this frame is. Of course I chose and adorable photo of a two second time in history when my babies are loving each other (haha) to put in the frame but you can put anything between the acrylic sheets! I've seen lots of Christening clothing, gorgeous scarves, pieces of nature, all kinds of things framed in these awesome frames and they're all so beautiful!
