School Room Art

I am decorating Kaylyn's new room in retro schoolhouse stuff. I want it to be fun, creative, and colorful.

I do not like to buy artwork. I'm sort of a do-it-yourselfer. I figure why spend money on art when you can create something yourself. It is so much fun and A LOT cheaper. And you get exactly what you want.

So, while some friends and I roamed the streets of Warrenton, TX at the Antiques Fair this weekend, I found some things to take pictures of for Kaylyn's room.

I would have liked to have taken more pictures during the 5 times that I went, but this was the first time that I went without children.

In case you haven't heard of the Antiques Fair, it happens twice a year in two little towns in Texas called Round Top and Warrenton. You can read more about that HERE. I am really into anything old, worn out, beat up, full of character, has a history, or whatever. My husband and I found out we shared this common interest very early on in our marriage so it works out very well for us to enjoy this together!

Here are some of my favorites! I can't wait to see these printed and up in her room.
