Size matters

February 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Last year I ordered a set of prints from my favorite session with my girls. Each print was 12" x 12", it seemed like a 40" wide x 26" tall layout would be big enough for the wall behind the chaise....uhhhh...wrong! By the time I spent an hour measuring everything and getting them on the wall I realized how small they really were. I wasn't sure what to do since standout mounted prints are reasonably expensive and I didn't want to start over, order bigger prints and trash the ones I had already invested in. After having breakfast with a photographer friend at her house, I noticed she had standout mounted prints too, only her's were also framed and they looked fantastic. So, Ginny, thanks for the idea, I love the pictures so much more now.
Lucky for me, my hubby is a woodworker with a pretty awesome wood shop right in the back yard and was willing to build them for me after a bit of begging. I of course had to caulk and paint them (4 coats to be exact!), but I'm pretty happy with them now AND they're proportionate to the wall.
Sorry about the before picture, I took it on my phone and it's hard to photograph metallic prints without catching a glare.
