I was recently at my Mom & Dad’s taking down Christmas Decor on the top of their cupboards. Once everything was down, the cupboard top’s definitely needed a make over. Taking a look at what would work up there, I found several empty old frames downstairs & a can of black matte spray paint. After spraying the frames, they were arranged above the cupboards randomly. This project took less than an hour & at no cost.
Also I put a grouping of angels my Mom has collected with a family picture & an awesome picture of my Grama with a jar of buttons (a good memory) & Uncle Jack.
I think it is important to have pieces of our loved ones that have passed around us. I made a memory box out of a shadow box (from Ikea), covered the hard backing with pink tulle & pinned my Gramas pins onto the backing….so simple & inexpensive but packs a loud message of how we think of her.

I wished I would have had my own camera with me to really show the difference in the before & after but I am sure you can see how with little finances, a bit of brain storming & having the agility of a cat can make a huge difference to an empty space!
