Too many frames, too many options: Ways to showcase a frame gallery on your home11:52:00 PM
I've always love the look of frames overload on a wall. It's one sure way to give life to any room. You bet I'll be putting that up in more than one room for this 'house prettify' project I've been working on.

So now you understand why I use darn. It's too hard to choose from all these styles and techniques! These things requires long pondering/daydreaming, and it doesn't hurt to have the talent.
After much thought (yep, long daydreaming helps), here's my 'wall' plan for our house:
My bedroom- frames: mismatched / arrangement: complete symmetry-the box (update! see my bedroom gallery here)
Hallway- frames: matchy-matchy / arrangement: sort-of-symmetrical (update! hallway TINY gallery here)
Living room- frames: mismatched / arrangement: random (update! our living room frame gallery here)
Photos of our wall galleries to follow upon completion of projects. (fingers crossed so tight it hurts)
