A New, Fresh Way to Display Photos

Like I blogged about several weeks ago, my homely apartment is a little, say, lackluster right now. It needs a full-blown makeover. The roommates and I have made several updates, however, our list of things-to-do-to-and-buy remains rather long. Take a look:

- artwork for the dining room wall CS painted up a storm and we now have colorful canvases on the wall!
- 5 x 8 blue rug in the living room
- two (matching) lamps
- vase/centerpiece for table I scored an aqua, cut-out vase at TJMaxx and filled it with white hydrangeas from Michael's (on saleee!)
- something to go above the couch *
- colorful throw for the couch
- a mirror + small entryway table for front hallway

*Yay yay yay! Think that's enough shouts of exclamation? We've been waiting, pondering, trying to decide what to hang above our tan couch. It needed to be big, but not too big. Preferably not handpainted art (trying to mix things up) and all the store-bought art we found was expensive. No gracias. 

At $14.99 a pop, I could afford two, no problem. These 45 1/4" shelves - we got them in white - are the perfect way to show off family portraits and cool shots of the city. The best part: since your photos will be leaning against the wall, it's super easy to switch them in and out and rotate them as your wish.

There so many different picture displays you can make with the picture ledges. Here are a few I discovered while browsing interior design websites:
