Well, we’re back in the good ol’ US of A. I can’t say that I was really ready to be back yet– I could have easily spent another week or two shopping, sightseeing, eating, drinking, and in-general taking in the culture in Europe. Alas, it was not to be, and here I am, sitting in my cube, sipping my second cup of not-even-comparable-to-French-cafe-au-lait-coffee, staring off into the space somewhere behind my monitor.
We had a nightmarish travel day yesterday– ground stops, delayed and missed connections, lost luggage, and the beverage cart ran out of free wine on the transatlantic flight (for my MN girls: I finally visited your great state for the first time… even if I did just sit on the tarmac for three hours after being diverted from Chicago). That being said, my camera and SD cards are sitting in my suitcase locked away somewhere– which means I can’t share any of the photos of our trip with you. And since I can’t share the photos, I thought I’d share the plans we have for them.
Our dining room has long been suffering from neglect. Other than our DIYed chandelier and changing-table-turned-bar, we’ve not done much by way of decorating the room. Our plans are to make this room a showcase of our travel. We’d like to fill the walls with photos of our trips both together and apart. We considered a photo wall, but since we’re planning on doing that in our hall, we wanted to go another way.
We both love the idea of DIYing a photo ledge. It would allow us to add and rearrange photos as we travel and even to display trinkets we pickup along the way. Below are a few pins of photo ledges that we’re going to take our design from.
I especially love the ones in the third picture from Robin at Happy at Home. Maybe it’s just how she has it styled, but I absolutely love it! I can’t wait until we can get started on these! It’s been too long since we got our DIY pants on!
How do you share your travel photos? How do you cope with the first day of work back after a vacation?
