I love old-fashioned black and white pictures, especially if they’re of my own relatives. It’s amusing to scrutinize their facial features, figuring out which sibling inherited which feature from whom.
I had a bunch of old photographs that I wanted to display in my home. I first thought about collecting old brass frames and creating a collage. But then another idea struck:
I placed my ancestor pictures behind an old window that I had cleaned but left distressed. I attached each photo to the glass using photo corners. Not only do I have instant wall art, but it also gives company something to look at and talk about (for example: which is the only picture that I am in? And which child is my dad in his old family picture?)
