filling empty walls

In the spirit of a recent promotion at Black's, I rummaged through my photo collection to filter out some lucky few. The deal was eight 8 x 10" prints for $8! It was also quite serendipitous that I had rediscovered these brand new, simple white frames a few days prior to hearing about the sale. These frames from West Elm were purchase maybe a year ago and haven't been touched since! It's about time I unwrapped them.

I printed out a few specifically for the frames and then others for the fun of it. I really like having hard copies of my photos so I'm always taking advantage of the promotions at Black's every now and then, especially the 50 prints for $5 deal! That one's a gem.

These photos sit right above my couch in the living room.

I might get a frame just for this one shot here. This photo was taken during my trip to Europe in Lugano, Switzerland and I think it has a lot of charm. I cropped it to suit the portrait orientation of the frame.

It's really fun and easy to scrape together your own wall art. Not only do you get to proudly display your artwork but it isn't hard on the wallet either! I went with a diptych sort of approach which I'm really liking. I'm excited to keep experimenting and changing up the artwork every so often!

I've been wanting to hang photos in my dorm but I'm not allowed to drill holes in the wall. So I must wait 'till the summer when I move into an apartment of my own. So far from now! :(
