This is our fireplace mantel display right now. Normally, the picture of Mister (which was taken by Wells Family Photography) is displayed where the middle candle holder on the wall is at. But, the Christmas wreathe was hung there during the holidays, so the picture was taken down. I am trying to figure out how I want to arrange it to accommodate a second 16×20 photograph after the new baby arrives. The mantel is 5 foot. The framed photograph is 2 foot. So, two of them (I’m getting a second frame for my birthday–love ya, Mom and Dad) would be 4 foot. If I hung them side by side, I could do 3 inches on either end and 6 inches in the middle for candle holders or what not. Or I could do 3 inches in the middle and 4.5 on either side.
I also want to replace the living room curtains with some red ones. The current ones are blue in color, although you can’t tell in this picture. I had to turn all the lights out in the living room and stand at an angle to keep the flash from reflecting off the portrait.
