The Landing: Baby Steps

Well it’s only taken 17 months but we’ve finally added something to the landing.

Or the hallway I should say. Last you saw the landing it looked like this. I’d painted it white and put a few frames up. And then it stayed like that. For a long time. I stated in my home decor plans for 2018 that I had some prints and frames standing by to put up and I finally got around to it this week. It also helped that Topher and I finally spent the Debenhams vouchers we got for our wedding and got this frame.* Big thanks for our photographer Nikki Cooper for sending us some actual prints along with our wedding photo filled USB stick. That really got our bums in gear as that prompted us to go and find a frame to put them in.

So we finally have photos of ourselves in the house. Yay! I love the way this frame looks.

Then I finally got up some more prints we had as well as one of the wedding photographs that we loved but was in portrait so it wouldn’t fit in the main frame.

I like how it’s growing but I feel like we definitely need a better balance of prints and photographs. I may also swap out the gold and silver frames for black and white ones. I like the idea of having nice bright prints that have a more muted frame. I just used those ones because I had them on hand. And they definitely don’t fit the prints they have inside them!

We also received this awesome key holder from Topher’s auntie and uncle as a wedding present so I finally got that up too. How awesome does it look?

I guess the next step is to get some more photos printed. We’ve got loads to choose from since next year it will be a decade that Topher and I have been together. Fingers crossed it won’t take 17 months this time!

Are you slow to make changes like this too?
