It was just about one year ago that I wrote about selecting accents for our new home.
But the one area I hadn’t yet tackled was family photos. Just before we moved I did a massive purge of the clutter of random picture frames I’d amassed over the years. I don’t know about you, but I really struggle with how to display family pictures. Between finding the space, selecting the frames, and where/how to display – along with the challenge of staying current when you have a growing family – I got fed up and simply Marie Kondo-ed the place (I do put a photo book together every year, which gives me so much pleasure).
Our new house made it even easier to stick with this plan. As I wrote before, we have tons of windows, and very little wall space for display, which I filled with art that we already owned along with those new pieces we acquired. So there wasn’t much room for photos anyway.
But I’ll admit I missed having family pictures around.
The process was super easy, with lots of options for customizing along the way. You start with your canvas size (I chose the 6″ x 6″):
Then upload your image:
I didn’t want the photo wrapped around the edges so I chose one of the cropped options:
And LOVED that I could change the color of the edges to complement the picture:
A quick preview to make sure I loved the final product:
