I’ve been struggling with ideas on how to display photos in my office. I’m sick of the blank walls – I want to paint and then fill the walls with images that tell stories. But how should I display them? That’s my problem. I’ve been fascinated with the idea of using clothes pins (and possibly glitter-ing or painting them first) and then hanging them from twine. You can tell a story in each photo or in a cluster of photos that have a sequence of events. Anyway, here are some ideas I’ve seen that are really inspiring. I found this image at Promise Tangeman Updates Blog - she explains exactly how she makes her cute display. I love how the pictures aren’t straight.
At the Old Brand New Blog - they’ve used a few different sizes of clothes pins and painted them a solid color.
Oh Houzz – I found this display of vintage photos. I think these are clothes pinned to an old metal mattress base. Pretty clever.
I love Southern Weddings showed this sweet display used at a wedding. I think it would be cute for a birthday party or engagement party too. Simple yet creative and organic.
This image I found on Pinterest and it wasn’t linked to anything. But I thought it was super cute using vintage hangers to display photos along with some miscellaneous meaningful things. Kinda of a hodge-podge of special things and not necessarily just photos.
If you have any ideas you’d like me to share (of your own or something that’s inspired you) please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Dysfunctional Photos’. Thank you!
