My Little Man & the Moon

i was so excited when i found this rodarte moon wrapping paper (part of the new neiman marcus line at target) because it's perfect for cole who is still obsessed with the moon, you may remember this post from the summer.  i knew it would be gorgeous framed and i couldn't wait to try because it was cheap, easy and would be instantly gratifying if it worked.  it reminded me of these that i had seen from restoration hardware.  to my surprise, it looked even better than i imagined!  it turned out to not be your average wrapping paper, it's super thick and has a velvety matte finish that makes it look expensive.  i originally planned to hang it in his room, but i'm now considering it for our living area, so i decided to play around with it a bit.  i think it could work for anyone whether you have a moon-loving kid or not...
also did i mention there's four sheets in the roll, so there's room for error if you cut it out incorrectly.
the 22" x 28" poster frame is also from target (sorry no link - only available in store).  it came with plexi-glass
that i decided to take out to loose the glare and then i cracked it so there was no putting it back in.
i then used scotch tape to very carefully secure the paper to the backing board with very little tape on front
so it wouldn't peek out of the frame.  the great thing was it turned out so much better without the plexi-glass.
(i love happy accidents)
gray throw from target, handmade pillow from my etsy shop, metal polyhedron from hobby lobby,
gold candleholders and sconce from pottery barn, table and boat are flea market finds.
