Junk Fest Inspired Wall

I love the concept of decorating with empty frames but had never tried it until I seen Junk Fest's entry this week for So You Think You Can Decorate.

I have a lot of empty frames stored away that I pulled from the trash where I was employed.

One of the frames is huge and I got to thinking what wall I could use it on. It needed to have a lot of room. I found the perfect wall. {You see those 9 frames to the side? Those have been hanging empty for two years waiting for me to put my family photos in. Gotta get those done now for sure!}

I dug through my frames and pictures and found the wedding photo silhouette of my husband and I. I had totally forgot about it when we moved here.

I loved this white frame the second I seen it laying in a heap of rubbage. The width and angle of it gives off the sense of so much depth.

The silhouette's detail on the groom and bride's arms is our first names.

Then our last name along the bottom.

With hanging this here by itself, it gives the piece the spotlight it so deserves.

Thank you Junk Fest for inspiring me. If you havn't visited the site, be sure to take some time and stop by there.
