It's go time. Do I:
A. Go for colorful frames, a la Steven Gambrel's now-famous hallway:
or B: Create the effect of a giant bulletin board, hanging grasscloth and trimming it out with ribbon and nailhead, kind of like this
I have to order the grasscloth today, if I go that route. I was playing around with a sample I had on hand for someone else, with some vintage trim, just to get the idea.
As for the frames, well, after a search turned up colorful frames only at too-high prices, and quantity will be a problem most places, I realized I would need to pick them up from Ikea and spraypaint them. There are only 130 or so, so not that big of a deal to paint, load, and hang, right? (And my husband may not be thrilled about the 130 holes in the wall.....)
One more decision question, coming up next!
