I love art. Love making it and love collecting it. And with J's recent homecoming I am left with one big conundrum - what to do with all the art...and I don't part with the art.
Contemplating a montage wall but the thought terrifies me. And by the way - why does putting a little nail in a wall terrify one so?
Plants. Lots of those, too. Their placement, however, isn't as perplexing.
This is my much easier and less stressful black and white photo montage wall. As you can see it's a rather large wall and I plan to fill it as much as possible. Nice thing about these is that symmetry isn't such an issue so adding new framed images is a snap. Here's what I do...
Thrifty Decorating Tip: hit up Goodwill for frames. Paint them black or white. Get a large piece of white mat board (Michaels, local art or frame shop, etc.) and cut to the dimension of the frame.
Next, center your black and white photo (which you ordered from Sam's or Walmart for .57) and attach to the front of the board with double sided tape. No one will ever know that this image isn't professionally framed. Unless they look too closely and, I don't know about you, but this type of person is not my friend.
