easiest diy project ever

I have been in complete home decor mode the last few weeks. I just want it DONE (yes, I know it will never truly be "done", but I would just like some serious progress). We have two blank walls on either side of the window in our kitchen--one of the walls houses our "coffee bar", but the other wall was lacking a bit. 




Ever since Nicole made her chicken wire wall I knew I wanted to do something similar. I thought the blank wall in our kitchen was the perfect place to put one! I set out to Home Depot, got some chicken wire (around $10), came home & used a staple gun to attach it to the wall. The whole project from start to finish literally took less than 10 minutes. 



I used some wedding pictures, free printables from Pinterest, and wedding/engagement/bachelorette party/baby announcements/invitations (we have a lot going on this year ha!!) to decorate. I grabbed these clothes pins at Wal-Mart a while back ($1 for 24) 


I love the way it turned out and I love that I will easily be able to switch things up with different seasons, invitations, etc. I plan to put all the Christmas cards we receive this year on our chicken wire wall. 

I'll be back next week with even more home decor projects : )

P.S. Be sure to check out Naptime Diares new 2013 Advent calendar! I ordered mine yesterday and can't wait to figure out how I want to use it in our house this year.
