At the start of 2011, I made a list of home projects to tackle. The list has evolved and changed a bit since then, but I'm still trying to get some things crossed off since my first (and only) burst of productivity back in January.
For the month of April, my focus is to get started on a photo wall. I've been going through pictures and keeping a folder of my very favorites from the past few years. Lots of good memories. I also want to incorporate a couple of framed non-photo items – a monogram or a quote or two. I have a couple of frames on hand already, but I don't want them too "matchy" so acquiring them all will be a little bit of a process. I also don't want to break the bank on this project, so I'm hoping I can score some clearance finds here and there and maybe have some luck at Goodwill. I am still deciding WHERE this photo wall will take shape, but until then, I'm getting inspired by these fun walls…
Love the display of this oversized colorful photo.
I have no idea where I found this – and googling the file name doesn't bring up anything…but isn't this cool?! LOVE it.
Love me some Tara Whitney photography and her photo walls rock.
I could forego the frames altogether and print photos canvases, as they've done here at the studio of Drescher Photo & Design (check them out if you are in the IC area and need a photog – they are amazing!) It would be a bit more pricey, but it seems like I'm always getting coupons from my favorite printers. It would be fun to mix black and white with color photos like they've done here.
I had originally envisioned white mats with black frames, but I like the freshness of all white as shown here on Young House Love – also love the less traditional, asymetrical arrangement.
So many fun directions to go in…we'll see what evolves! 🙂
