Sorry, sorry, I know, I’m a terrible person. You would think I would be eager to write my 100th post, but we’ve been doing so little house-wise (read: nothing) that I’ve not been able to admit it.
We seem to have negated this inaction by spending £120 on white frames in Ikea. Now I know this sounds like a lot of money, but we had almost three quarters of this already from the bits and bobs we put on eBay in the last few months, and the living room is looking so bland without these finishing touches that we thought we’d just bite the bullet. Plus, it’s near TGI Fridays and we deserve Jack Daniels chicken. I digress.
We also picked up some white boxes for the units, but decided that £120 was enough for one day and put them back.
For this princely sum, we purchased 24 frames – 4 x A4, 11 x A5 (ish), and 5 x smaller ones (5 x 7″) and 4 x even smaller ones (4 x 6″). We ended up going for two different styles, Sondrum and Ribba. 24 is less than we were going to have originally, but when we looked at my mock up from March it seemed a bit crowded.
With it being payday next week, we’re going to wait to buy the prints, but they should be around £30 from photobox.co.uk. As I mentioned way back in January, I’ve turned them all black and white and they should look amazing! Not sure how we’re going to arrange them yet – looks like it may be a difficult thing to measure. Watch this space…
