After Elisabeth's contribution to the ivy removal, here is how it looks:
...now for my surprise. I guess everyone likes their decorations for their own reasons. I have never had an above-the-bed decoration that I really, really liked. I've had wreaths, purchased artwork, etc. After seeing some different ideas, I decided to take some of my wedding pictures (that were 4 x 6 actual photos...not digital) and did this:
I had to take this from the side so there would not be any glare. The photos are 8 x 10 and mounted on artist canvases. I spray painted the edges black and used Mod Podge to adhere the photos to the canvases. In our wedding, I had the veil down over my face until "you may now kiss your bride", so my face is fuzzy in the top picture.
I hope my husband likes it!!
