We call the main floor bedroom the “gramma” room as it is where my mother stays when she visits. It has a vintage quilt on it and the pattern is called “around the world”. I picked it up at an estate sale a few years ago and felt that the colours worked well within that space. We have had several travel items sitting in there and so I hatched the idea that we should have an around the world travel wall of photos. It has taken a significant length of time to achieve this but I am extremely happy to report that tonight we hung the last photo/frame.
We had stalled out as we needed the mat cutter and had momentarily displaced it but we finally found it. Then the bonus was that we were home together on a snow day so finally got back at the picture frame project. The bed has been littered with frames and supplies for 3 months so it is well past time to get this wrapped up especially as my mother is coming to visit in just over a month.
The frames are all multiple tones of gold. The matting varies depending on several factors and some don’t have matting. Most of the frames are antique or vintage and were picked up at antique stores, my local small town second hand store and Value Village. Ron’s concern is that this volume of framed photos makes the room feel busy but I’m loving it but the plus side to using the picture rail is that it is easy to move the frames around should we desire to.
Now maybe we just need one more snow day so that we can hang the completed picture rail in the second floor bedroom — I’m just kidding people! We could do this on a rain day as we’ve actually had enough snow for a while and it would be nice if spring was to finally arrive.
