This reader project is a great reminder to think out of the box (or frame) when displaying your photos. Even a piece of furniture intended for something else entirely may fit the bill.

"I have a china cabinet, and the top half is comprised of 12 windows (4 columns, 3 rows). This would be great for displaying fine china, vases and the like, but I don't have china. I have preschoolers. So my china cabinet is full of paint, glitter, cotton balls, popsicle sticks, felt, construction paper, and all the other things young kids use to make art projects. "
In what she calls her "lightbulb moment," she solved her quest to hide the art supplies and display more family photos at the same time. Luckily the openings in her china cabinet happened to be the standard 11 x 14 photo size. The finished project creates a lovely focal point for the room and lets the kids reminisce over dinner.
