I just made a change to this wall that was super easy and totally free by printing some photos here at home to replace a couple of the ones that had been up here.
One of the pictures that I replaced is glared out and impossible to see in the above photo, but it's in the middle on the left, and was a photograph that was small and super dark so you had to be right up in front of it with your face practically against the glass to see what it was.
I printed up a photo of my oldest playing in the waves at the beach a few years ago. I liked the photo for this wall because the colors are muted so even though I printed it in color it doesn't stand out a ton from anything else around it. Plus it helps hide the fact that I'm a cheapo and printed it up on regular computer paper.
I also replaced that same son's drawing that was framed on the other side of the wall.
I felt a little guilty getting rid of it but I hoped that by simultaneously hanging a picture of him, it would lessen the sting. And it worked; he actually hasn't even noticed that the drawing is gone.
I replaced it with this:
It's an aerial shot of Las Vegas and I found it at a royalty-free stock photo site (this one). Like the other photo I printed, this one's colors are kind of faded so again it doesn't jump out at you even though I printed it in color. And again it helps to hide the poor quality since it's printed on computer paper. I like having a reminder of my favorite city in here, since it's where Rob and I met.
Sometimes the quick changes are the most gratifying.
