We have commenced a project many years in the making; a family photo wall. I, of course, start with the concept. Then he draws it to scale and we discuss.
And then typical of our personalities we start. I start easy. Success breeds optimism and energy. Below is a window that needed just a little TLC and a big photo for behind the whole thing. It’s now gracing where it will live.
He starts hard because you might as well do the hard stuff first while the energy for the project is high. Or some such thing! This window was a freebie from who knows where and is in terrible shape. Hardware is all rusted, window pane is falling apart and the layers of dirt are thick. I’m thinking I know where it will live and even know what photos will be printed to go in it. ❤️ Meanwhile I have pulled out all the family photos, framed and I framed, and laid them on a bed. The project will not be done before that bed is required but at least this gives us a starting point.
That meant I also pulled out baby books, a drawer full of photos and have my obvious first big post retirement project looking at me. It’s been on the back burner since before we moved out here so I think it’s time.
We will put considerable time, energy and some spare change into creating several window walls of pictures. It will use our creative side and our wood working skills. It will keep us out of trouble for the winter!
