DIY frame gallery attempt #2: Living Room (Part 1)

1/26/2011 10:38:00 PM

I'm pretty sure I've established the fact that our house has a lot of junk / scrap / trash / or any other term for old unused stuff lying around collecting dust. (Proof here, here, here, here, and here)

Here's another pile to prove my point:

Those are the frames I collected searching every inch of our place to fill this blank wall:

I guess the above picture also shows the junk we have around. This side of the room holds all unwanted stuff since we cleared the other side (striped wall / cheery yellow entry). At least I can look away from this and see some order!

Here's the final arrangement of the frames prior to spay painting:
I was looking around the room looking for a place for the clock. Then a thought hit me, why not include it in the frame gallery? And there we have a blank frame perfect fit for the clock. It's sooo meant to be. (Yes, I can be over dramatic at times)

As you can see in the moodboard, the frames are mostly black with a few touches of bright color. Here's the gallery post-painting:
We haven't printed out the pictures and artworks yet, so the final reveal (part 2) will be posted when we finish the project. And I'm fabric shopping soon for the curtains and slipcovers, I can't wait!

Oh if you're wondering about the camera crew, I'll tell you soon. ;)
