living room I rearranging a lot of art and pictures. Most did not make it back in the space, therefore that left me with a lot of empty wall space. Although I love that look Dr.J wants the walls filled with art and pictures. We have an abundance of family photos and kids artwork throughout the house but not a photograph that we have taken from travels.
Once upon a time you could not get a camera out of my husbands hands, he loved to take pictures of cityscapes and interesting buildings. I just recently started to take pictures that aren't of events or my own children and we want to incorporate those into our home. Most of his pictures were taken with film and we have to locate the negatives and digital files of others.
Since most of our pictures are lost at the moment, the joy of being unorganized and having multiple computers over the years, I put up some pretty botanical's instead. This is a temporary fix until we find the photographs we want hang.
Ribba frames. I did not like that they had to be hung by an wire I had to install myself. I have a system when I hang pictures on the wall and since each frame will hang slightly different I was a tad bit frustrated. I followed this helpful online video on how to wire a frame. I did go out and buy new picture hanging wire that wasn't so rigid and easy to work with. Please believe, your figures will thank me! :)
ingenious tool. All you need is a paint stick and a screw. Insert the screw into the paint stick until it just barely goes through. Hang the frame on the screw and hold it up where you want to hang it. Once in the exact spot, hold the paint stick firmly in place and remove the frame. This works better with another pair of hands. Press the screw into the wall so that you are left with a precise mark where you will place your nail or screw. Hang your frame and done!
