Whats on my walls...

I don't think that there is a wall in my house that is not covered with a photograph or piece of art (painted by myself or by some little fingers). It just makes each room complete! So I thought I would show you what's keeping my walls nice and cozy....  
The old windows are the perfect focal point in our living room and bring in that rustic feel that I love, plus there's teeny touch of turquoise paint that pokes through-LOVE! They were recycled from our sunroom when we got the old windows replaced and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them as they were coming out of the wall!

I've recently added some family photos to the kitchen as well. Our colorful display wall is the perfect place for photos of the kids eating chocolate cake and grinning ear to ear with their mouths full of food. I really love the old shutter that we have there as well...it's great for sticking holiday photo cards, or photos you get in the mail from family and friends.

Our stairway was one of the first walls that got decked out in photos. I had always dreamed of a big fancy entry hall with a winding staircase and a wall full of photos and frames. Needless to say, I don't have a grand entrance like that. But I do have a photo wall running up the short flight of stairs of our 1.5 storey house. The kids love looking at everyone each time they go up and down the stairs.
For me decorating with portraits is such an easy and inexpensive way to decorate and gives us a chance to stop and reflect on the happy moments we've shared as a family!

What's on your walls?

This is so lovely! Our guest bedroom is decorated with my son's art throughout the years. I put them in inexpensive frames and they add a unique, colorful touch to the room. A friend once asked where we bought them.:)

I love those window frames! I'm slowly running out of wall space myself :)
