Decorating with Portraits at Brown Paper Packages

 Hello friends! I’m Kierste, the girl behind Brown Paper Packages, and I’m delighted to be here!I love being surrounded by photos of my family–from the past and the present.  Nothing evokes stronger feelings of home, love, and belonging than photos, and they can remind us of memories that otherwise might have dwindled or been forgotten. Quite simply, they remind of us who we are.I recently acquired a bunch of wood pallets, and I couldn’t wait to get going on a list of projects that I had in mind for them.  I had a vision of using them to display family photos, and there was a blank spot in my house just right for it. Sometimes there are just SO many pictures I want to display, but I don’t have the space to put them all.  This project is perfect for a lot of pictures–in a smaller space.
 I adore the end result.  The clothespins make it extremely versatile, and I can switch pictures in and out whenever I like.  I’ve clipped our most recent family pictures, but I thought about displaying past photos that were taken during the current season or holiday. It would be so fun to feature old Halloween pictures at Halloween, Christmas pictures at Christmas time, etc.

Thank you so much for having me, Kristen!  I hope you’ll stop by Brown Paper Packages to say hi…I’d love to have you!
What a fun Idea! Palette’s are all the rage, but I haven’t seen pictures displayed with them–love it! I love how many can be displayed in one space as well. Check out these O-Henry bars on her site, and this framed magnet board.  You can find Kirste on Facebook and pinterest.
