My dad came to DC for the inauguration weekend and we spent a lot of our time working on things in my apartment. And by we, I really mean he...I just directed the operation! Especially when we went to the Washington Framers' Workroom in Tenleytown. He quickly took over when I was struggling with all of the things he does on a daily basis. He is at home among wire cutters, pliers, and fractions...whereas I take triple the amount of time to use these things and compute numbers. I get there eventually, just not as fast.
And now I present the results of this project. Two of the photos (8x8 and 16x20) were hand-cut and mounted at the Framers' Workroom, three (8x10s) were standard frames and mattes from Michael’s. The photographs are all mine.
Let's take a look back at what the wall looked like before:
And with the new pictures:
I'm happy I finally have some art on my walls, but there is still a lot of white space left! Love it or hate it?
