5. In The Frame

Short on space? Opt for a multi-picture frame.

6. Spell It Out

Why spend big on expensive art when you can make your own?

7. See The World

Not sure what to do with those old holiday snaps?

Black and white photos are evocative of days gone by, so stick with that feel and display them that way.
