Today I am linking up with Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life Series - and this topic is how to display pictures! Now, if you have followed this blog for long, you know I love pictures. My problem is getting them printed and into a frame! And I have lots of space to display them - it is just a matter of doing it! We have built in bookcases in the living room that is a great space for displaying them - especially on the "countertop" over the cabinets (I have one of the sides pictured on the top right). My goal is to put frames out and then decide what pictures to put in them. It was actually on my mental to do list for before Jack was born - oops. Another space is at the top of the stairs (middle right picture). I have our Christmas card picture done on a canvas and hang it there. I have thought about doing a small gallery wall here with family pictures over a small sofa table or something. And in the bonus room, we have lots of space - over the couch (top left picture) we are aiming to do a gallery wall of Tennessee and Auburn things, but we could also use that space to do a gallery wall of family pictures. I have a feeling sports items will end up there - it is the only place I'd be ok hanging sports things!! The middle left is the collection of items we have for the sports gallery. And we have a large entertainment center in the bonus room where I have some pictures. I should probably move those and just put those downstairs or on the bookcase in the bonus room - that way legitimate entertainment items can go into the entertainment center. And then in the master bedroom, we have a few pictures on the dresser (bottom left picture). We used to have quite a few but I wanted to simplify. And then on the bottom right, you will see that there are spaces on either side of the window near my side of the bed - my goal is to get two matching frames and put both of the kids' hospital newborn pictures on either side of the window.
I guess I have a hard time deciding what to put out and what not to - I want to simplify and declutter, but I also love pictures. I can't wait to get some ideas from other people's posts! And of course there is always Pinterest :) I am going to consider this a "before" of my display of pictures. Hopefully I will tackle that project soon and can do a follow-up post!
