Sea of memories need creative home
November 26, 2011 1:31 PM Subscribe
After sorting through a castle of boxes, I discovered hundreds and hundreds of loose photographs. The photographs vary in size from
3 x 5 to 8 x 10 and even a few 10 x13's. I have many albums, and they are full. I have several photograph boxes, also full. I would like to display as many as I can without being obnoxious but I'm looking for fresh ideas. What are some interesting, space saving artistic ways I can use and display my sea of memories?

I recently moved and have a very large wall space in the living room that extends down my hallway and was thinking of that area for my photograph/art. The space is 12' long and the ceilings are approx 8 to 9 feet tall. The color on the wall is a gentle celery green. My furniture is eclectic mission/antique/wood with very few nicknackie things. The carpet is sadly very light perhaps we could call it light beige. But I have a massive area rug with burgundy, blue, moss green, gold, wheat, purple and orange.
I want to maintain the integrity of the photographs but don't necessarily want 50 frames on the wall. The more creative the better, and I should mention that I am NOT gifted with the ability to cut a straight line and I eye ball everything I hang up...
