My Monday #12 - Frame your thermostat

#1 - SHOP of the DAY - BrambleBunny

#2 - ITEM of the DAY - Reversible half apron - vegetable garden navy

This idea I got from Pinterest. Found it at 2 a.m. (yep I'm a compulsive can't sleep so just troll through Pinterest kind of gal). My first thought was this is highly unnecessary. I mean a frame around your thermostat. Why? But it was also 2 a.m. and I was tired. But luckily I pinned it and looked at it again after a few cups of coffee and changed my mind. Coffee changes everything.

Now I was GOING to make a trip to IKEA but going to Old Navy happened instead. These yellow shoes were calling my name and no one says no to Old Navy. Or bad things happen I'm pretty sure. SO I decided to be thrifty and use an old frame I already owned. Pardon the shadows. My thermostat apparently likes to be dark and mysterious.

So overall thoughts on this easy craft.

Total Cost - Free if your have an old frame (hopefully cuter than mine) - up to $5 for an IKEA frame.

Level - can you hammer a nail in the wall = you'll feel like an expert with this craft.

Overall Effect - Turns something super boring into a great focal point. I Love it.

Happy Monday!
