I wish I was one of those people who could decorate my home just the way I want it from the moment we move in. Unfortunately, what I wish for and reality are two different stories. Due to making smart financial choices (darn you husband and your excellent planning and spreadsheets), indecisiveness, a tad of laziness, and a bad eye when it comes to decorating...we've been living her for 21 months now and our home is still a big work in progress when it comes to decorating. Thankfully, we didn't have any big projects to work on, but there have been lots and lots of little projects happening over the past few months. In the next few weeks, I want to share a few of them on here, but getting them all photographed and put up may be a slow process for me (again...slightly lazy!).
So project number one of 2014 was filling in the wall over our sofa in the living room.
This is the room where we spend 90% of our time when we're home, so I wanted to add something to this wall, but it seemed like such a daunting task to me. Did I want art (it would need to be BIG to fill the space), photos, or something different? Either way, we needed something. This big space was just so blah and uninviting.
And so, we went with family photos! Ta-Da!
Here are the 4 photos I had printed from mpix.com as 12x12, and then we hung them in frames I got at Ikea for $19.99 a piece. Also, picking out 4 photos was way harder than I expected it to be!
I had originally planned on just printing them at Walgreens, but after thinking about how I wanted these to be a focal point in the room, I went with a printer who was known a little bit better for their quality. I was very pleased with their turn around time and the quality of these!
