It only took 6 years...

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I love taking pictures but then have a hard time displaying them anywhere. It takes me forever to get frames and then figure our where to put them. I don't like family pictures on every wall, but like to carefully select spaces or vignettes for them which is why it has taken me over 6 years to put them in my family room. I figure a 'family room' should have at least some family pictures in it. I have limited wall space in mine so after careful deliberation and then a 'what the hell' attitude I finally put them up. The wall I selected is tricky as it also is my staircase to the second floor. I can't add a table or anything underneath as that space is a pass through to the mudroom so I can't block it. For now it works and I like looking at my favourite people as I sit in the space. Why didn't I do this sooner?
Who knew a few pictures on the wall can make you so happy? Next, a corner armchair.

Better late than never =)
I love the way you have arranged the picture frames , like the arrangement.
I have been wanting to put family pics but they are so many to choose from. I have decided to buy a retro looking frame and inside that put a digital camera :) That's the project for the coming weekend. Let's see :)

Looks terrific! It too takes me forever to decide what piece of art of photo should be hung where... heck, we've been living in our little house for several years and I haven't hung anything in the living room yet!! I'm stymed by the unforgiving plaster walls in that room (not easy to patch if I hang something in the wrong place - oh, and not a simply hammer & nail job either!!) and ongoing renovations that might mean more walls for things to hang on (meaning I might find a better place for that special something!). So you can see... I'm in bad shape!! ;-)

Have you thought about a narrow floating shelf or picture shelf for the spot below the frames? That shouldn't interfere with flow and might be a lovely way to add to the memory/gallery wall you've created.

Cheers!
