My kitchen wall

my new kitchen photo wall
About a month ago, I showed you the new kitchen curtains I sewed for our newly painted kitchen, and I showed you some of my tin collection on display in the kitchen. For the final step in our kitchen renovation, I re-did the 'photo wall'. This wall used to display 8 underwater photos, shot by me while scuba diving in the Caribbean in the mid 1980's. That means the photos were 25-30 years old. They were faded, discolored, with blah beige mats, and I was sick and tired of them. So I went through my photos and eventually narrowed it down to a new selection of 8 Adirondack photos. I repainted the plain wooden frames with a nice shade of cranberry, got new mats cut for the new photos in a rich gray, and today I put them all together.

I love the way my new kitchen photo wall looks! But it's hard to get a good photo of the wall, because of all the glare. Anyhow, here it is, above, and below is a closer look at 6 of the 8 photos.

  1. Okay Phyl, now that you're finished with your kitchen, wanna come fix mine up? LOL Your photos look fabulous! I would never have thought to repaint the frames! Cranberry and gray-very Pottery Barn!


    1. Ironically, Pat, the color scheme is totally different than my original plan, but I'm happy with the way things turned out. Not sure how I should feel about the Pottery Barn comparison though!
