number thirty-four

One of the items on my thirty-six things to do before thirty-six was print and frame a photo. Done. pugwash2 DSC_0680

I chose my Pugwash photograph because it is my happy place and I think the print is a nice addition to the gallery wall. There are many places you can get photos printed and enlarged – like Costco and online services – however, I went with a local store to avoid shipping costs. Atlantic Photo Supply on Dresden Row in Halifax offers an easy online ordering system and gives the option to pick up (for free) or ship. They also have tons of size options and different finishes like metallic, canvas, high gloss and matte. I ordered an 11×17 print and it was $13.99.

I was lucky to score a bunch of Ikea Ribba picture frames at half price (thank you Jessica) and have been slowly filling them. You can say I have a bit of a white-wall-white-frame-oholic problem. DSC_0681 DSC_0685

Sorry for the glare, perhaps I should put take a photography class on my to-do list for thirty-seven.

Hanging a picture gallery does not need to be a guessing game … and if you take the time to plan things out, it can save time and money (on filling all of those accidental holes).

My friend Sabrina is kindly sharing the process she used to make a picture perfect gallery in her home. I hope you find this helpful. Thanks Sabrina!
