Remember Barney?? Well, Barney has been gone for a while, but the area above the bed was painfully empty. I have hopes of making a headboard someday, but there was still a lot of wall to cover.
So I decided on my go-to cover-a-lot-of-space-cheaply trick - frames collage! Basically, as I referred to in this post - my budget was $0, with the added obligation of using some of the stuff I had accumulated. Luckily, I had a bunch of black frames, which fit in with the colors of the room.
I wanted the "theme" (how artistic!) of this wall to be trips. So in theory, every picture up there is representative of a vacation. Then I had some tree images (the main one from Ikea), one from my godmother's husband, and one that I took myself on a trip to Asheville. So - the theme got amended to trees and trips. Close enough.
I didn't want to do straight black and white, so there's some color in there. Non-uniform? Maybe. Too bad.
Our wall is representin' Charleston, Asheville, Mexico, St. Lucia (via Tony's parents), and Turks and Caicos. I hope to add more as I go, hopefully more dimensional art (I'm thinking coins, paper money, cool trinkets, etc).
The room is getting there! I just need to jazz up the one corner and get new blinds, and we'll be set. Come on over!
