Friday DIY: Following my Heart

Happy Friday! Is anyone excited for the weekend? I know I am (and it's supposed to be sunny and gorgeous here - woohoo)! Do you have any DIY projects that you are going to tackle this weekend? Help me choose which heart I should pursue. Since we don't have a headboard I wanted to make a focal piece for above our bed. Don't get me wrong I love a bare white wall but I think it's time that we define that space. My husband, the minimalist is just fine with our platform-esque bed but I want to add a little oomph if you know what I mean (cough I'm the eclectic one cough - no surprise really). I narrowed it down to two ideas that are quirky, modern, and pretty minimal. Help me choose! Apartment Therapy posted an awesome round-up of inspiring pictures from Cookie Magazine. This particular picture caught my attention. Since my husband is a photographer I thought this would be a cute idea with a collection of photos he has taken along with photos of us. We could also put our vow pictures on each side. What do you think?

The next DIY project I found is this adorable DIY Heart Cord featured on La Papeterie Diva. I love that she used neon pink (not sure that would go over well with the hubby) but I would probably change the color to match our bedroom. It looks like a super fun project.

So there you have it. Two options, help me decide!
