I have a huge blank wall above my couch. The wall was a blank canvas that drove me crazy until I figured out what to do with it. Finally, I came across a post of a picture ledge on Pinterest and was inspired. I had to have one! I'm really happy with how it turned out. The picture ledges are from Ikea (I love that store). I bought three and put them close together to create one long shelf. I wanted three short ones because I wanted the option to change it up later. The ampersand is from Michaels and I think it was only a $1.50. I was going to paint it but I kind of like the raw look of it the way that it is.
I created the "This is the Life" 8x8 printable in picmonkey and had it printed at Costco because I didn't want to waste computer ink. If that's your route, you can find and download the printable HERE. If you've got enough ink to spare you can find the pdf for the printable HERE.
