Well here is the second part of the series 10 easy ways to display your photos. I’m on a mission to get you to actually print and display those images that have been stuck on your computer for months or even years! When we moved into our new house 2 years ago, I made a commitment that as we completed the renovations of each room I would display our photos in there. I just love seeing them all on the walls now, and remembering those moments. So here is the next 5 easy ways to display your images. If you missed part one, see it here.
Number 6: Just grab a frame and lean it against the wall!! How is easy is that? No need for nails. Let’s be honest, we all have a spare frame laying around somewhere. I urge you to go and get it, put one of your favourite photos inside and just lean it on a piece of furniture for you to enjoy!
Number 7: Display images in the kids bedroom, of the kids. I have a small gallery wall mixed with art in Mylas room, and in Rileys room, I just leant the frames up on his bookcase. I love seeing photos of them when they were younger, as they grow up so fast!
Number 8: Utilize the wall along your stairs. This is the perfect blank canvas to display some pretty photos. The stairway down to basements are usually dark, and a little unwelcoming. So I decided to brighten ours up with family photos. I chose to mat them in a more modern way, which adds interest to the overall gallery. Explore different ways of matting your images other than the traditional centred mat.
Number 9: In the laundry room. I think this has to be the last place you would think to display photos. Gosh! How boring is it doing laundry? Most of us hate it, so adding a little something to brighten up the room is great. In ours I’ve used a framed photo to hide those ugly pipes. Yes, my husband did a great job at making them the neatest he could, but they still looked so awful to me. So I decided to frame a cheerful photo of one of our trips and leant it up against the wall. Voila! SO much better!! Now I can look at that bright photo and reminisce about our trip while folding that never ending pile of clothes.
Number 10: A wooden block with prints inside. Now I can’t take credit for this idea. I first saw it at Artifact Uprising and just loved it. Luckily I have a super handy husband that whipped up this block for me and I actually just printed the images on my home printer, because I’m impatient and I wanted it now! However I will definitely be ordering the refill pack of prints that Artifact Uprising offer. Just so cute, modern, versatile and inexpensive.
