Above my couch- Odd number of frames are my favorite way to arrange pictures (luckily I have 3 kids!)
My inspiration, above, would have cost me around $200 just for the SHELVING alone, so I hit Lowes, bought the shelves for $30 and went out to collect my mismatched frames from Target, Michaels, and some I had around the house that I reused (which were, smile :)... FREE).
I just got all different frames, types, sizes, brought them home then played with the arrangement for a while. I only had to take 1 frame back!
TIP: When redecorating see what you have around the house first, before you go buy. Especially when it comes to picture frames, accessories, or even fabric.
I just LOVE the way the frames are leaning against the wall, overlapping each other, and creating this cozy, messy but clean little story. I am still in need of some accessories, but that will come.
When it comes to framing think "outside the frame"... hehe.
- I picked a fall leaf at the park and pressed it = FREE
- I also framed my late grandma's art work= FREE and meaningful
- Framed a picture of their lakeside cabin that holds all the memories of her and I= FREE
- My mom frames music programs, Restaurant menus on significant anniversaries. I also saw that one of my friend's framed dried roses she had gotten from her husband over the years, so cute
If it is special to you, FRAME IT!!!
