a christmas gift/project for me...

One thing I put on my Christmas wish list was cool frames for my frame wall. I showed Charlie the kind of frame I liked, and told him not to worry about the color because anything could be painted. I wanted size at least 5 x 7 with chunky edges.

See this box? It contained seven individually wrapped black frames of all sorts of styles and textures. (oh, and don't you love my cute polar bear jammies?)


Now I need to get them all painted and decide what kind of photos will go in each frame. That may be the hardest part of course, deciding who will go in the photos and getting them all the right size. But, now I'm closer to my goal of filling up the wall with photos. Who knows? Maybe my whole dining room will be a family gallery.

That is a really neat idea. We have a big blank wall in our living room and I've been wanting to get a big framed photo collage to hang in there, but I like your idea better. It's something I'll need to think about. Thanks for sharing!!

I love it!

Maybe someday when we own our own home, I'll do the same thing. Right now, I'm not sure our landlords would appreciate all the holes in the walls.

Those are some rockin' jammies!

What a fun gift/project! I love the idea, but the variety of shapes would drive me nuts. I want to do something similar, but with frames all the same size/shape as well as color, in a grid pattern.

A wonderful idea!

Can't wait to see who you put in the photos and the finished product. How are you today?

Oh, I love it!!

I am working on the same kind of project right now, but for our hallway! I already have a bunch of frames that I spray painted black many years ago, but I am adding more to it and updating all the photos. Maybe I will have to post a picture when I get mine done too!
