I come from a long line of "Picture-a-holics". My grandmother's walls were covered with our school pictures alongside portraits of Elvis. This was a woman who had a ceramic animal kingdom in her yard- that she decorated with the changing seasons. She even put earmuffs on the "geese" on cold days. I am determined to break this cycle.
I once heard a decorator say that personal pictures should be reserved for the bedroom. Well, if they are nudey shots, ok. But, otherwise - reeeeeaally?
I decided to give it a go and relocate some "personal" pictures to my bedroom. Here's what I did:
|When we remodeled our kitchen, this built-in door bit the dust. |
It found a new home (RE-USE/RE-CYCLE) as a picture frame!
|I put all my black and white pictures under the glass topper!|
Now, the dresser surface is clear!
|And, I still get to enjoy some of my favorite pictures!|
Now, I just need to clear the front of my refrigerator! Ehh... Maybe next summer.
