Under a House

For the Walls

DetailsChrista Cardone1 Comment

We collect prints and frames around here, but rarely get around to placing the former into the latter.

Top three places to find picture frames:

  1. Yard sales
  2. Ikea
  3. Your parents' Goodwill pile

Top place to find screen prints and posters without frames to call home: our spare bedroom.

With a blank dining room wall staring me in the face every morning, it's time to get to work. I resolve to hang frames even if they were empty. I'll find something to fill them later. Pro tip: Rifle Paper Co. gift wrap looks pretty darn good in a frame.

Here is a video of me making hanging frames look like a speedy and painless process:

Hanging pictures only takes seconds and not a whole afternoon like we all thought!

So that's my story for the week. I hung some empty frames. Next year, I'll put something in them!

ANOTHER pro tip, since I don't have much to show for myself otherwise, is to use Command Strips, which are keeping a great number of items stuck to my walls.

Happy hanging, friends.
