At any rate, I have decided that 2010 is the year to start showcasing our art and photographs. The first place I started is in our foyer. Our house is very open so we do not have a lot of wall space in our foyer. The blank wall below is the "showcase" wall, and it is the first thing visitors see when they arrive.
As I mentioned above, I have a bit of a fear of hanging items on the walls at this point. Therefore, I needed to develop a tool that would aid my confidence. I decided that before placing any nails in the wall, I would trace the size of my framed art onto paper. I then used these paper cut-outs to determine the positioning of the art by moving the paper pieces around on the wall (adhering the paper with tape once I thought I was in the right spots). The display I settled on is pictured below.
As the year progresses, I will continue to share with you how I accessorize with wall decor around our home.
