|A close-up of one of the prints.|
First, can I say how utterly horrifying it is to be without internet service for three straight days? Our area is affected by an outage so we've been without phone, cable, and internet all weekend. It's like living in the dark ages. And it royally stinks. I even had to hang out in an internet cafe (all artsy-fartsy, like) yesterday afternoon to work on my report cards since our new program is online. It's been a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad weekend.
Anyways, since I wasn't blog surfing all weekend, I was able to wire and hang those four botanical prints that I had framed. I knew I wanted them to go in one of the bare, neglected corners in our dining room.
|Oh, look. There's Roary in the background scratching an itch. |
He wanted me to mention him in this post.
In order to help me figure out the spacing for my grouping, I made paper templates the exact size of my frames. I taped them to the wall and moved them about 15 thousand times until I got them right.
|Please disregard the kids' work that is strewn all over the living room floor.|
I finally decided that a 2-inch space between the prints would look best. I measured, leveled, and hung 'em all by myself. I may even have stuck a nail right in some ductwork during the process. :S
|Hmmm, I like it.|
Well, that's all I have to share since I really need to finish these report cards while I've got an internet connection. I heart the internetttttttttttttttttttttt!
