As I mentioned yesterday, I found the shelves at Lowe's. While I thought they were a bit expensive, they were the exact look I was going for. Plus, I knew that I wasn't going to spend a lot of money to fill them. Wow, I'm good at justifying spending money!
The ledges are only a few inches deep, so I knew I would need frames that just leaned against the wall. I went into my
When it came to actually putting the frames on the shelves, I just played around until I found an arrangement that I liked. Some of the frames overlap and I really like the look of that. I also like that the prints are all different, but they are tied together since they are all black and white. One of the frames is filled with leftover fabric from some pillows that I made for the bed. There are really no rules about what you can put on display!
Before I bought the shelves, I had already hung that large bronze clock. I like the clock, but I'm not sure I like it in that spot. Any opinions? By the way, the paint color in our bedroom is Valspar's City Storm. In real life, the color is a lot more gray than it photographs. I had the paint color-matched to the Olympic low VOC paint. It was my first time using the low VOC paint and it was ah-mazing. There were no fumes. At all. And it's cheaper than the normal Valspar paint. I'm in love.
What do you think of the picture ledges? Have you tried overlapping your frames and just leaning them against the wall? Is anyone else paranoid that they could all come crashing down at any second? By the by, if this isn't your thing, I'll be back later today with another option for displaying a great variety of frames.
Thanks for reading,
