I Caved

I really was going to live with those pictures over my bed and be happy with them. I was convinced I could do it. But I was wrong.

I did not want to spend a lot of money matting or special framing these little prints, even thought they are really nice. I think that's why I was trying to convince myself they were okay.

Friday, following the goose incident and an unplanned trip to the Chevrolet body shop, I caved in and went by Michael's just to see what they had in the way of frames with mats already included. I would need 11 x 14 frames with 8 x 10 mats.

You know what I didn't know...Michael's sells a pretty nice little selection of pre-cut standard-sized mats, and some of them are even double mats. I found three black ones with the white cut marks showing for a little accent color, and three larger frames on sale (I love Michael's sales).

You saw the two before pictures, now here are the two after pictures:

They are so much better.

As for the questions the other day, the light will hang from the middle of the bedroom ceiling, and I plan on white cotton panels on black iron rods.
