Framebridge and Our New Legacy Wall

When trying to decide what to do with the 115" back wall of my new workspace, I turned instantly to art but instantly hit a snag. I don't really care about art. It's not that I don't like art, but that I don't feel any sort of attachment to the art of others. This might be the curse of a maker –– I need to feel emotionally attached to any sort of artistic expression, be it mine of someone else's, and I have never felt connected to someone else's drawings, vectors, paintings, or photos. So, as you could imagine, this put a dampener on my decor plans.

And then, I had a stroke of genius.

I opened a family album filmed with original, black and white, family photos taken by my great-grand father and my grandfather (Abuelo) –– both professional photographers and writers. In it, was a treasure trove of rich family (and even Presidential) history. And suddenly, my vision became clear...

I must build a legacy wall!

This will be a wall in our home, in my work space, filled with old family photos, blown up and professionally framed. And from that thought, came another...


Here's What I Did:

  1. Decided which photo to blow up
  2. Scanned it (on the largest possible setting)
  3. Uploaded the scan onto the Framebridge website
  4. Picked my frame, size, and matting
  5. Used a coupon to save money
  6. Ordered my frame

About one week later, my framed photo arrived and I was in love!

The photo, taken by my great-grandfather, is of my grandfather, working in my great-grandfather's photo shop. He couldn't have been much more than eighteen years old. And this is the beginning of my legacy wall –– a much better decision than someone else's art.

This means so much to me.

While I'm deciding which photo will be next, you can save 15% on your first Framebridge purchase, and maybe start your own legacy wall!
