Going For GOLD!!!

Well its actually not an Olympic inspired post but I just couldn't help myself. So you all know that I'm back over in sunny Scotland but one thing you may not know is that I have spent the last 3 trip collecting. Oh yes, I am collecting gilt frames.

I have this plan in my head and this one I am slightly unsure of how it will turn out. I am collecting these lovely old wood gilt frames (I currently have six or seven different sizes and shapes) and I am going to remove the old print and replace them with black and white photo's of different destinations we have visited. Its a risk to take something very old and try and add something very new but I'm hoping it will work. I'm then going to put them all together into one big wall of photo's.

I'm still not 100% sure if this would work but I'm determined to try ... I have been googling for images of people who have already done this but am coming up empty .... do you think it will work? Do I need to add some dark wood frames to try to balance out the copious amounts of gilt?

Am I crazy? ..... All valid questions I just don't have an answer for.....

I think if you have a vision go for it! You'll only know once you've got it all hanging up whether it works or not - just use the 3M picture hanging strips and that way if you don't like it you can take it all down without damaging the walls! Ange
