I have had these gorgeous old family photos for years and I hadn’t hung them up because I was waiting to have the right frames and the perfect place. My attitude towards decoration has changed a lot recently, I am much bolder because I realized that my taste and my life continuously change and evolve and there is no point waiting until I have the money or the time to do exactly what I would like to do, taking the risk of not doing it at all.
I got this black frame from Ikea, a pack of two only costs 3 euros. It is really plain and not great quality but I managed to make it more interesting by using some recycled wrapping paper as a background. I love the photo, it is of my grandfather and it looks really good framed like that, it is striking and nostalgic.
