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...
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:
- Decided which photo to blow up
- Scanned it (on the largest possible setting)
- Uploaded the scan onto the Framebridge website
- Picked my frame, size, and matting
- Used a coupon to save money
- 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!
