As you can see, most of them are also empty. That's because I can't resist a good cheap frame, even when I don't know what I want to put in it. Most of these were either on sale/clearance somewhere, or found at Goodwill.
Once I had pulled all the frames out of the drawer they were stashed in, I got to thinking... I probably have the beginnings of a photo gallery wall, yes? I'm pretty excited about this idea, because there's a lot of pictures I'd love to display but have never gotten around to it. Also, our house is still in need of some personalization (3+ years later).
There are currently two empty spaces that are dying for some attention -- both of which would lend themselves nicely to a photo gallery. One of them is on the wall leading down our stairway, and the other is the wall above the landing in the stairwell. I think I know which one I prefer; what space would you choose? Who knows, you might sway my decision!
[Please forgive the poor photography and lighting]
More to come on this new project later... I think I need a couple more frames (which I can probably wrangle from elsewhere in the house), and I still have several decisions to make.
- What photos to display?
- How to lay out the frames?
- Paint all the frames the same color?
- Paint the frames in coordinating colors?
- Mix in any other wall decor with the frames? (i.e. mirror, vinyl lettering, ledges)
In the meantime, I decided to share some gallery wall inspiration thanks to good ol' Google. Turns out it's quite the popular topic! (I hope I got all the credits right, sometimes it's hard to tell where they really originated from.)
