Operation Cutify: Hall Of Lame To Hall Of Frames

So, we wanted to turn our drab hallway into a MINIATURE GALLERY. We wanted to have a place where we could display our collection of prints, photos, and objets d'art and we wanted to be able to easily re-arrange things on a whim. After the re-painting was done, Missy's parents built PICTURE RAILS with wood molding we got at Home Depot and installed them to one side of the hallway. To complete the "gallery look", we installed a TRACK LIGHTING system that we got at IKEA...

We tested the rails by placing a few items on them. The hallway is only about 75% done...we've got a lot of prints and photos that we need to get framed still. When the hallway is 100% done, we'll have framed artwork hanging on the walls as well as sitting on the picture rails...

We also finally hung up a couple of framed CONCERT POSTERS in our CRAFT ROOM. The ranch feels more and more like "home" with every piece of framed artwork or photo we're able to get up on the walls...
