Picture This...


Here is the poor naked wall in my living room.  I've had grand plans for it since Christmas after I got this:


It's a picture of Wightman Chapel at Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville.  This is where the hubby and I got married in 2007.  His folks found a professional photo of it and had it framed for us this Christmas!

I immediately knew where I wanted it.  On my naked wall surrounded by other photos!

So I went to Goodwill and found all of these:


I wanted some oval frames too so I went back today.  Can you believe Goodwill only had ONE oval frame! Out of probably over 100 frames!  Guess one is better than none.

So here is the layout I ended up with:


I knew I wanted to keep a few of the frames empty, and that I wanted those to have a bright color.  I typically don't like black (I'm more of a wood girl) but I decided to match the rest of the frames to the first photo.

These are the colors I chose:

In progress:



And a little bit of Mark Wahlberg to keep me company:


Now I've got them drying! 


Tomorrow I am going to glaze the three colored frames then have some photos printed out!  Stay tuned!!

Cheers!
