Wanna hear a shocker? We have lived in our house for over six years now and I’m just starting to hang things on the living room walls (gasp!). Yes, I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to decorating, I’m a little slow to commit. I think it’s because I hate to hammer nails into a perfectly good wall until I am absolutely certain that whatever I’m hanging is staying there for the long haul…until I move, until I die or until Jesus returns.
I also admit that I am sort of picky when it comes to putting things up on the walls because I want everything in a room to harmonize well. I get a kick out of creating a theme in a room and don’t want things to look odd and out of place.
It has taken me this long to finally decide to use my living room walls to showcase the small collections that I have been collecting through the years.
Once I decided what to do with my walls, I had to figure out what color of frames to use – the same or an eclectic mix? I decided to keep them all the same color and to use a black satin finish (not too flat and not too shiny) so that the colorful collections inside would POP! After this decision was made I then began shopping for the frames and buying the needed supplies for my d.i.y. project.
