He's been working on getting some of our favorite photos and small art pieces framed, by purchasing frames from the thrift store and then spray painting them matte black. He mixed my Dansk pieces in, so they'll be both decorative and easily accessible again.
It'll keep changing as we add new pictures and pieces. I love it. Also, shortly after this photo was taken, I had a total freak out over our clutter. It's a constant battle for us, because I alternate between the urge to have a cozy house that incorporates all the special little trinkets we love (everything that you see in our house is something at least one of us loves - we are pretty brutal about junk) and a sometimes overwhelming desire to live in a museum-like house, sparse and clean and decluttered. There will probably never be a resolution, but we did have a small cleaning rampage on Sunday evening.
