Now never-mind that this photo is truly shabby, due to the complete lack of natural light, but I'm awfully pleased with the overall effect. Several months ago I put up a gallery wall in our downstairs hallway. I decided it was time to finally display some of the photos I've taken, as I had not yet framed a one!
Previously, I had a few older black and white images up (in black and silver frames) and I decided it was time to pepper it with new, color prints and larger frames. For an easy freshen-up, I snagged some white and natural wood frames from Ikea to modernize and unify. (Ikea frames come with the mats and are cheap, cheap, cheap!)
Now every time I walk down the hall to the laundry room I find myself glancing at these photos and smiling. Even guests seem drawn and we'll often find ourselves standing in the tiny hallway reminiscing over our families and memories and treasured stories. Pictures are good like that, aren't they?
What is one of your favorite photos? Any tricks for display?
