Hello friends. How are you all adapting to life at home? No doubt you’re looking around your house for things to do! I love watching all the projects people are doing, from painting walls to rearranging furniture. That’s one good thing that’s coming out of this, we’re all tackling our home to-do lists. :)
Do you have an empty wall you’d like to fill? Now is the time to round up your favorite photographs and convert them to black and whites! Or an alternative is to purchase black and white photographs or illustrations from various artists and assemble them in a gallery. Adding artwork to a corner of your home is a simple project to take on, one that takes only a few hours and one you’ll appreciate for years to come!
Like so many of you, I love black and white art displays, both random and grid formats. If you are attracted to clean lines and order, then a consistent size and frame style is one way to display art or photographs. If you like loose or asymmetrical displays, a random format is a stylish alternative.
Pencil thin metallic frames in silver or gold are classic, but you can’t go wrong with basic black or wood frames. There are three different ways to assemble black and white art on the wall 1) with the same finish and size frames in a grid format, 2) same finish frames but in different sizes arranged in an asymmetrical display, or 3) a creative mix of frames in different sizes and finishes.

Etsy has an endless supply of original art, many of them instant digital downloads. And there are a few beautiful black and white images in my shop’s collection. My favorite source for same-day printing for photographs and artwork in sizes ranging from 8×10″ to 24×36″ is Walgreens (details here) and they are still open.
What home projects are you doing this week? Are you creating something new or tackling a to-do list? I’d love to know how you all are keeping busy!
