The following post is brought to you by Change of Art®. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.
I’m one of those people who has collected tons of prints and photos, but they’re not on the walls. Instead, they’re stored all over the house – most of them under a bed or still in a cardboard tube. I always say, one of these days, I’m going to frame them all and hang ’em up! One day…
If you’re the same way, then your New Year’s resolution should be to finally get it done! If you need a little encouragement, this might help: we’re giving away a Change of Art® 8-piece gallery of frames.
I love this concept: it’s everything you love about gallery style framing – except the hassle… Seriously, go from unopened boxes to everything matted, framed and hanging on your wall faster than you can watch a bad sitcom. Best part: Everything’s changeable. Update photos (or art prints!) as often as you like with a simple motion – no more digging those little fasteners out and dealing with centering your photos or realizing there’s a bit of dirt stuck under the glass.
Watch how easy it is:
This awesome gallery package is worth over $200 and comes with eight easy-to-hang, eco-friendly, made-in-the-USA frames with mats. Choose from Matte Black, Silk White, or Dark Cherry (you can mix and match!) and get 2 pro, 2 large, 4 medium to finally get those family photos up on your wall.
But before you enter to win, here’s Mary Ann Einarson’s story about how she came up with the concept:
Back in 2003, Mary Ann started a “friends and family” gallery in which she gathered some great photos, bought frames online, glass, and mats. She used her computer to design the layout and spend an evening hanging her frames (without photos!). However, it stayed like that – sans pictures – for 3 years. Why? “Fear of commitment, I suppose. I only had 12 spots, and I just couldn’t decide on the pics. (Who do I leave out? And what if they come to visit?).” She just didn’t want to commit, so she wanted to help other people take the plunge that it took her so many years to take and created Change of Art®.
Mary Ann knew what stalled her from getting pictures on the wall… How about you? Share your favorite (and not so favorite) parts about matting, framing or hanging your pictures – and you’ll be entered to win. Maybe share your ideas about the perfect gallery wall…
