Hello Kristen Duke Fans!!
I’m Stacie from The Creative Crate…
…And…First of all…I must say what an amazing photographer Kristen Duke is…and am honored to be guest posting in her awesome decorating with portraits series! I have been so inspired by all of the amazing ideas…and look forward to seeing more throughout this month!
I am a HUGE fan of decorating with portraits.  There is nothing I would rather see on my walls than my kiddos and their cuteness!
Ever since I started doing photography myself…I have learned  that decorating with {larger} portraits doesn’t always have to be expensive…or…you don’t always have to use frames.  I LOVE canvas prints…but look at the cost to get a large one done…and just about fall out of my seat.  Sooo…here is what I did instead :
I simply took 1/4″ hardboard…paint the edges black…and only glue your print to the top using Mod Podge.  {I don’t cover the top of the print with Mod Podge}…and here’s how it turned out:
I did the same thing here…but glued 2 – 1×2’s to the back so it gives the prints a stand out look.
Here…we used an old window  to frame the photo.

So there ya go…that’s how I’ve decorated with portraits…and you can also check out some of my past decorating with portrait ideas here on my blog!

Kristen…Thanks so much for having me on your awesome portrait series!!
