Tackle it Tuesday

I have had this project that I have wanted to tackle for about two weeks and when I got down to it it only took about 2 minutes to complete.  I really wish I would have done it earlier.  We had replaces our old dial thermostat with a digital programmable one and when we removed it the old paint color and plaster showed.

I had seen a pin on Pinterest where you can put a frame around the thermostat and I loved the look of it.  I would have never thought of framing it on my own. (I love Pinterest!)  So I went to the dollar store and found a cute white distressed frame that was just the right size.  Then I bought the 3M velcro strips.  I LOVE THEM.  They are amazing.  I didn't want to go through the hassle of putting a nail or screw in the wall so I thought this would be the easiest way, and it was.

All I had to do was peel the little paper piece off the backs to make them sticky.  Then I stuck them together and to the frame.  Then I just pressed it on the wall and PRESTO!

A perfectly framed thermostat and the nasty, ugly old paint is covered up.  I am so happy with how it turned out!
