this summer i painted the hallway and haven't yet re-hung the pictures that were hanging there. this morning i laid them all out on the bed and was starting to figure out which i'd put back. there is one long expanse of wall and we had family pictures hanging there. the frames are all different sizes and finishes. most are pictures of the kids at various ages along w a pic or two of the hubs and i, each of our parents and a couple grandparents.
option one is to rehang the family pictures, but not all of them because i don't want such a cluttered look. if i go w/ this option i'm going to paint all the frames black.
option two is to take about three pieces of art and frame and hang them. i have a picture i did and several from each kid that are currently gathering dust under my bed because we don't have anywhere else to put them.
after i had the art idea i looked around the house and realized that we don't really have family pictures hanging around. we have two digital frames full of pics and the fridge has several pics on it, but otherwise no.
what are your thoughts on the hallway? do you go for more family pics hanging around or other wall decor?
