Displaying family photos can be a bit of a challenge. How to display them without it being a cluttered, dusty collection of mismatched frames on the piano….yes, that is the questions! In this Saturday’s episode of Home Made Simple I tackle the problem with the use of oversized decals which turned a wall of cabinets into a personalized gallery.
The steps were easy:
1. Take a high resolution digital photo of your family photo.
2. Email or bring it to a local print shop.
3. Have them print it on an oversized translucent decal. I chose to have them all printed in sepia tone.
4. Carefully peel and stick the decal in the desired locations.
For the Pierce family I kept the doors that were getting the decals the off white color that they were already painted. I had the photos printed in translucent sepia tones so the off white and some of the grain of the wood showed through. Since they were on cabinet doors, I used an utility knife to slice the decals in half to align with the door openings. Here’s what the walled looked like before:
