Show Us Your Life - Displaying Pictures
It's time for the Show Us Your Life Series at Kelly's Korner. I can't wait to do some research on displaying pictures. We've been in our house for a few months now and I am still hanging pictures. I love the nice clean spaces on our newly painted walls, but pictures make a house a home.
I had this photo (sorry about the glare!) from my sister's wedding printed on a canvas. I had it done at Wal-Mart for a great price! It is very light weight and you don't need a frame. Plus, it wasn't very expensive so you can change it pretty often.
I bought a calendar of antique travel posters years ago with the plan to have them framed someday. I found them when we were moving and my husband let me pick out a few to get framed as an anniversary gift. I measured using the steps as a guide to be sure they were hung level. I really like them and hope to get more of them framed soon!
I hung my daughter's collection of artwork in this little space in the bonus room. It's an odd shaped wall that you can't really do a lot with. It is also in the area where she plays house. She likes seeing her creations!
Sometimes I like to get the tickets, pins, or other mementos from special occasions framed with the photographs. I had this NCAA Final Four collage framed for my husband for one Father's Day gift.
Finally, we have a large framed movie poster hanging in our bathroom. They are usually not expensive (unless you get into some of those rare vintage ones!) and are often beautiful or hold a special memory for you.
As our wall are reflects, we love family time, sports, traveling, and the movies. Whatever it is that's on your walls should be a reflection of the things you love. Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to go get some new ideas!
