Hand Drawn Family Photo & Frame {Giveaway}

Last week you may have seen where I spent some time updating my entry way with a fun new end table and some decor. Today I’m sharing with you my FAVORITE part of my mini-makeover with this awesome hand drawn family photo and frame that is now hanging above my table. The drawing is from the talented Design by Marlies, where she takes your family photo and transfers it into a hand drawn masterpiece.

I contacted Marlies and she had me send in the photo of my choice. Obviously, my photo cut my son off at the waist, but I told her what color pants he had on and my pink shoes and she added on the rest. I really had wanted the pink bow my daughter was wearing for her party in the photo, but she wouldn’t keep it on, so Marlies added that to it too. It took just a few days and she sent me the 8×10 PDF of my photo.

From there, I ordered an 8×10 Double Layer Grace Oval frame from Cut It Out frames and I painted it navy and white and put our family photo artwork into it.

I absolutely LOVE how it turned out and already we’ve gotten many compliments and friends and family asking where we got our print and frame from. It’s right next to the front door, so it’s a true one of a kind statement piece that all our guests see entering and leaving!

It coordinates nicely with our new entry way table too and really pops against our tan wall!

    I would choose the Preston Double frame and probably a family photo to go in it if I win. So cool and so fun! Thanks!
