How to Display Pictures Decoratively


Pictures can do more for decor than simply hang around on the walls. Here are some off-the-wall ways to put photos and art to work in decor.

Things You'll Need

  • Easels
  • Picture Frames
  • Picture Ledges
  • Plate Stand
  • Adhesive Dough
  • Break up the monotony of books by slipping small framed pictures onto bookshelves.

  • Prop framed art on easels or tabletop plate stands.

  • Put up a picture ledge, which allows you to move art around without honeycombing the wall with nail holes.

  • Set the picture on the mantel or at the back of a piece of furniture such as a chest of drawers or a desk.

  • Create a windowsill vignette with a framed picture (resting against the pane) and a couple of pieces of bric-a-brac on the sill.

  • Place a picture on the top of a toilet tank and lean it against the wall.

  • Set art atop a wide chair-rail molding. You may want to stabilize the picture with adhesive dough.

  • Hang small pictures on the inner doors of a computer armoire so you're surrounded by beauty while you work.

  • Slip unframed prints and photographs underneath glass tops on furniture.

  • Make a collage of family photographs and mount it on the front of your refrigerator with magnets or tape.
