Framing family photos

Remember these pillows? I posted about them here...


The living room they went into needed a little love on a blank wall ...


So I added a few frames that they can place some family photos in.


I love a photo art wall ... don't you?  All of the frames except one were purchased from aaronbrothers during their penny sale - seriously you cannot beat that sale. The middle frame, I had custom made. I have not had a frame custom made like this before - usually I am framing an actual photo or a piece of art. But while I was at my framer's having some other pieces framed I fell in love with this frame molding and asked him to make me up a frame with an 8x10" opening and with a back that opens easily so that we can put a photo in later. I think it turned out spectacular. 


I love that a few pillows and some (future) family photos was all it took to warm up this beautiful living room.


Happy Monday everyone!

Loving every one of those pillows! I think a home is only complete with picture memories around. Looks great.

That wall does look great and you're right there's nothing better than looking up and seeing some of your favorite people or memories framed nicely. And those pillows are a great choice for this room - they're perfect.

Great fabric choices, Sherri - so pretty! And how smart are you to install the frames and let them add their favorite photos. Brilliant - and beautiful!
