Display Printed Photos on a Framed Cork Board

Do you have a decent color photo printer at home? Well, if you're like us, you rarely actually print out photos unless you're sending a few to your still analog grandma. We've often taken photos we're especially proud of, but printing them out and actually displaying them is a bit daunting -- what type of frame should we use, to mat or not to mat? Here's a great idea for those of us who don't want to be bothered with framing, but still want a cute and organized way of displaying our snapshots.

Canadian House & Home shows us how to create a bulletin board that matches the rest of your d├ęcor and will act as a frame for your print outs. The magazine painted their board's frame and cork white, in order to match their room's walls. They then modified their photos to be black and white -- you can do this in Photoshop, for example, by selecting Image > Mode > Grayscale -- and then printed them out to be slightly smaller than standard 4-by-6 prints.

We say, since you have total control of your photo printer, why not print images at varying sizes so you can create a mish mash of photo sizes that's similar in look to grouping artwork together.
