Since I just told you about it last week and showed you yesterday, obviously you remember the cool picture I picked up for $19 (no tax!) at Goodwill. Even though the painting is actually really neat, and probably 30 or 40 years old I actually grabbed it because of the frame. Not only is there tons of potential with the really ornate details, but the dimensions alone were amazing! This lovely treasure measures 5 feet long and 3 feet high, which was perfect for an idea I had floating around for a while.
The hallway to the powder room and laundry room is really long and fairly narrow so I didn’t want a collection of frames or pictures, and I definitely knew it was too long to have a large painting because you cannot stand back to really view the wall. I decided that I would do a family photo collage (aka a glorified bulletin board).
Throw together a little paint, a piece of quarter inch plywood, and a sheet of cork and TA DA! you have yourself a photo collage that makes for an interesting stroll to the bathroom for our guests.
I just thought I would throw in this shot for a good laugh because I know that’s what I did when I first saw that ugly light fixture (PSA: smoked glass is not appropriate for anywhere, let alone a dark hallway!). Thankfully it is due to be removed this week and replaced with pot lighting.
