Over the years I added more photos as the kids grew, different frames and sizes, without really paying attention. All of the sudden I noticed I have them in natural wood, in dark green, in dark red etc. So I decided to give the kids part of these photos as the eldest has left home and the second is leaving in a couple of month and a third will leave next spring, so they can take their own childhood memories with them. In my hallway I had two rows of 4 images and those I kept. The upperrow are pastel drawings I made ten years ago and the lower row are babyphotos of all four of them. The top row had naturel frames, the lower row had dark green frames, so I spraypainted them all a matfinish black!
I didn't photograph the wall before, but the frames were like these:
