It finally occurred to me that I could put together a wall gallery using mostly items that I already have – duh!So I took the oil painting from the family room and two pictures from the kitchen (I repainted the frames) and combined them with my diy convex mirrors. You can see the tutorial for making those here.
I’ve mixed entirely different shapes and sizes within my mini-gallery, but it works because I kept the entire gallery confined within one big virtual frame that defines the outer edges.
Funny how such a small detail can make such a big difference! Thanks to all of you who suggested that.
I decided to take new pictures of the entire room, now that I’ve finished with the updates.
I have to say that I’m not wild about how my wide angle camera lens distorts the room, but you get the idea.
