Design-a-Wall with Shutterfly…

Share To:

Hello friends! Thank you so much for all of the love yesterday about our big announcement! Today, I am sharing an update to our master bedroom! When we moved, I decided it was time for a new look for the room. I sold all of my green decor and opted for a neutral color scheme in the new house. We sold our house mostly furnished, but we kept the black furniture from our room. I found the new bedding, bench and rug at HomeGoods but needed some new artwork and accents. Enter Shutterfly. I used the new Design-a-Wall system on Shutterfly to create and hang 3 – 16″ x 20″ canvases over the bed. I created the art using Picasa (see tutorial here) and a few of my fave new fonts. You can download my designs below. shutterfly_masterbedroom14 The Design-a-Wall system makes it simple to hang a gallery wall or any arrangement of wall art. There are so many configurations to choose from and every order comes with a hanging wall template and level. The system is setup to use with all types of Shutterfly wall art including canvases, metal prints, acrylic prints, wood wall art and mounted wall art. Imagine the possibilities! shutterfly_masterbedroom04 shutterfly_masterbedroom02 shutterfly_masterbedroom11 masterbedroom2 shutterfly_masterbedroom17

I just have a few more things to do to the room before it is complete, but I think the art was a great addition! You can download my canvas designs here

    We just moved into a new house. My husband is currently finishing up work projects in our master bedroom (expanding the closet opening, fixing the ceiling) and then he’s painting it. We can’t wait to move in because we’re currently sleeping in our nursery and our baby is due in one month!
    Anyway, a design-a-wall arrangement for above our bed in our master bedroom would be fantastic! I love the Horizontal Reverse Picture Window. I would use pictures from our wedding and from our maternity photo shoot!
