Picture This

A couple of weeks ago I found a listing on craigslist for 73 pictures frames. I contacted the man to see if I could buy just a few of the frames - what would anyone do with 73 frames?! Anyways, he said I could, so we went out there one evening and I picked out my favorites and ended up with 13 frames.

A good friend had recently done some decorating with picture frames. She painted five of them red and has them hanging in the hall on the way into the kids play room. The kids art is displayed inside the frames. I love it! But it's not "us" (*ahem*, the Paul part of us) so I can't copy her idea!

Here's what I've got so far;

Two of them I left alone, as they have a lot of character and got a lot of compliments and I couldn't think of anything better to do with them. They hang, empty, by our front door.



Ten of them I spray painted a champagne color. Spray paint is seriously so much fun!! These are hanging in our Family Room. They're also empty.



I can't decide if I want to put something in them or leave them hanging empty on the walls. If I were to put something in the frames, what do you think I should do?

Oh yes, and the 13th frame is in our kitchen. We had a super ugly phone jack in there so I covered the frame in paper and covered the ugliness up. It looks nice, I promise.

I have to admit that empty picture frames kind of creep me out. No idea why- I'm weird like that. I've seen lots of cool projects where you make a sort of patchwork out of fabric or paper then frame that.

Ok. Put some photos in there... You are so silly. :P

Oh, I kind of like the empty frames, although I think I'd paint a rectangle in a wild color or something on the wall behind them. The it would look like planned art instead of empty picture frames, know what I mean?

I like the frames
I like the idea to put your kids art work in them and to leave some empty but not all of them....
The big ones in the pink room look good alone but I don't think all the champagne ones look good alone ...

Definitely put some family pictures in them! I love looking at peoples pictures, they're much more interesting than just a blank frame. You have such a beautiful family and so many pictures, might as well show them off!
