Photo Display with Ikea & My Mind's Eye

A few weeks ago my 2 daughters and I hit the shopping trail at Ikea. After a yummy breakfast (kids eat FREE on Tuesday) in Ikea’s restaurant we were ready to shop! I had one thing in mind - Photo frames to display a few photos that I am not ready to close into my scrapbook quite yet.
I knew right where to go, but first we enjoyed a browse through the store to see the new product they have for fall. Check out their 2013 catalog, lot’s of fun colors and new product!
Ikea is absolutely the BEST place to pick up photo frames, fun shelves and accessories to highlight favorite photos! So many fun shapes and designs. Best of all they coordinate and compliment one another. Whether you decorate with a modern flair or prefer a softer look, these frames are plenty versatile for everyone.


I am in LOVE with the large frame I found! My goal with this project was to take the scrapbook page from the album and put it onto the wall. Piece of cake with this frame. The matte was the perfect size to accessorize. Plus I love the shadow box feature with this frame. You can place the photo right up against the glass or give it a recessed look. I love that the embellishments can be chunky to add to the overall effect.


I love Ikea for SO many reasons, one of them being that prices aren’t over the top. This whole project ran just over $50 to put together. Not bad considering I used a light adhesive on the matte so I will be able to update it at a later date.


I went into Ikea with a pretty focused vision but left with a bunches of ideas floating around in my head for a few other walls in my home. In a few days school starts, look for me in Ikea!
Thanks Ikea and Snap for the wonderful shopping experience!
