Hi, friends! Today I’m excited to share a super fun project with you. I did a little one-day makeover in the most neglected room in our home. It’s a huge improvement that I can’t wait for you to see. I don’t want to spoil the video for you, though. So I’m sshhh-ing.
For this project we are working with our longtime friends at Canon USA. They make my absolute favorite photo printer, the Canon PIXMA iP8720, which I use nearly daily in my studio. One of the things I love most about it is that it can print 13×19 inch (or large format) photos at amazing quality. For the project, I needed photos that were 12.5×12.5 inches to fit the record frames, so it was super easy to print these out. I LOVE big photos. I used all iPhone photos for this project. It felt good to print out some memories that could have gotten lost in my sea of phone photos.
Do you guys like my new improved space? This space is now a second dining room (a “party room” if you will…), and it’s located between my kitchen and dining room. The perfect place to play records while we’re cooking dinner!
I should note that this isn’t the first time I’ve done a record frame project. I did one about seven years ago (eek!) that is somewhere deep in my archives. My friend Tara Whitney inspired it with her beautiful record frame wall. (Side note—if you’ve never seen Tara’s photography, it’s gorgeous!)
Also, I got my record frames at Michael’s, but you can find them just about anywhere that sells frames. They’re easy to find and cheap.
I am SUPER happy with our upgraded record space. We’re slowly collecting more records, and in the meantime, I figured it was a good spot for a few cookbooks, my painting stuff, some oranges (haha—not sure about that one… it makes sense in my brain), and a pair of headphones.
Thanks so much for reading! I am working on a post about my home printing process, so if you have any questions at all regarding printing at home, gimme! xx. Elsie
