Affordable Photographic Wall Art

I’ve always loved black and white photography. It seems to capture something about the subject that colour photographs don’t.  My favourite picture of all time was a black and white one of me and my son on my wedding day.  These days I click away with my phone on a daily basis, storing hundreds and hundreds of pictures of my family.  On a recent visit to my mum’s home and seeing all the photographs she has on display, I realised how few photographs we actually have around our own home.  Thanks to the nifty filters on my phone I am able to get all sorts of  effects so decided to print three black and white images of the boys and make them into wall art for the new utility room wall.

I bought these great value Ribba frames on a recent trip to IKEA.  perfect for the job. Really easy to take apart.

We had some photo quality paper at home.  I downloaded the photographs
from my phone onto the computer and printed them off.  Cut them to size
and stuck them onto the white mount.

Put the picture back together again.  Took me about 10 minutes to do all three.

 Can’t wait to get them up on the new utility room wall.

    They look lovely! Something so classic and almost nostalgic about black & white photos x.
