Lately I’ve been getting bored with my walls. I have a slight obsession with picture frames. I can spot them from a mile away at yard sales. I am not afraid to pick them out of people’s garbage bins. My whole house is covered in them. Our living room, however, was lacking somehow. I had my picture frames hanging in there for quite a while, but was never fully satisfied with how they looked. The area was too large. I needed to fill up that huge space somehow, so after a little digital sketching (so I could work out where each frame would be positioned before punching a bunch of holes in the wall) I decided to spread them out more, higher up, and here is my result:
Below is what it looked like before (sorry about the crappy photo, I forgot to take a “before” shot and had to find this one on my computer):
I changed out some of the artwork and added a few embroidery hoops fitted with fabric for a little extra pop of colour. I am loving this arrangement so much better! I feel like it just brightens up the space so much. What do you think?
I’ve been collecting some inspiration for some of my other walls, such as this:
Plates! I love this setup! I am always afraid of putting plates in my wall though in case they happen to fall off and smash! If I had a beautiful colourful collection such as this though, I’d probably get over that fear!
