I've always wanted a way to display the photos I've taken, and there are tons if ideas online:
I love all 3 of the previous displays, but I wanted something that looked a little more organized, but still very casual.
I like the display below, but I big part of being able to display my favorite pictures is being able to change them out quickly and easily. I know if I had them this neat and orderly that I would never go back and change out old pictures for new ones. Yes, I am that lazy, and most likely I would move on to another project and never look back. If there is one thing I concentrate on doing for myself, it is making things easy.
So I came up with this idea to buy some trim from Lowe's, and make almost flush shelves to lean the photos on... I kept trying to explain this to everyone but nobody could understand just exactly what was going on in my head. Anyway, here is what I ended up with. This project cost about $14. Each piece of trim was ~$7, and I already had the spray paint.
These two shelves are one piece of trim. I bought two pieces to make four, 48in. shelves.
I could have gone with a funky color, or stained the wood, but I really wanted the shelves to simply be the medium that held the pictures--not a distraction.
I'm planning to add at least one more shelf above these ones, but just haven't gotten around to it yet! I'll have to find a new place for that little framed picture too.
I like that I can display different sizes without messing up the "unity" of the pictures. I think the horizontal shelf unifies them enough to throw up some different styles/sizes.
What do you think?
