On the walls

We don't have much.  On the walls, that is.  I recently took a photography class, and for our last assignment I went out to take some photos of our downtown area. 
The sky was so beautiful!  When I saw how these turned out, I knew I had to hang some.  So....enter Michaels' 'Barnwood Frames'
I bought all they had in stock during a 55% off sale....an 11x14, and three 8x10s.  I wanted to use three of them on a little wall in our living room, so I did the 'craft paper' trick to figure out the placement of the nails:
Somehow, it worked. 
Then I managed to find a mat for the 11x14 for just $2 at Hobby Lobby.  Score!  Now I just need to take a portrait shot for the middle frame. 
I wish I'd thought to take this picture during the day!  You get the idea.  I also got a 16x20 Barnwood frame for the other side of the dining room opening, and a matching mat at Hob Lob.  Tip - matting is much cheaper there than at Michaels!  Hang anything lately?

  2. Love the barn wood frames. We just received a beautiful wedding gift that was a custom made mirror with a barn wood frame. I will have to hit up the Hob Lob to see if I can score a good deal on a few of those frames. Great photos!

  5. I hadn't hung a thing in our new house since we moved in June until 2 weeks ago. Now on a mission and almost finished hanging what we have that we LIKE. There are some things that are now in our storage room that didn't make the cut. But at least that gives us extra frames.
