First on my list was to finally finish my family photo wall. This is a project I began a few months ago by collecting & printing photos, and gathering together my collection of black frames. Most of the frames were from yard sales, and quite a few were black after a nice coat of either spraypaint or acrylic craft paint.
Maybe you remember my craft project where I painted paper mache letters and hung the word "family" on my wall. You can see in the photos here the "family" above the closet and bathroom doors in the hallway, and the photo next to it is the big, bare wall opposite that one. This is where I planned to hang a zillion family photos.
Well, instead of a zillion photos I chose to hang a select few of just the four of us. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I decided to not use the photos of our parents, grandparents, cousins, etc. in this particular vignette. Those will be used as either a collage in the basement rec. room, or put in frames to adorn a tabletop in the living room. I haven't decided which.
Here is my finished project (thanks to hubby for helping me hang them). It's simple really, nothing too exciting, but it is another thing I can check off the list of unfinished projects. Ahh. Breathe.
