vintage camera display

YAY! I finished #16 on my 20 things to do in 2011 list - displaying some of my vintage cameras.  I was wholly inspired by this photo by Tim Melideo Photography that I originally saw in this guest post by Hula Seventy on Poppytalk.  

I had some frames on hand from a buy one get one sale & just used some Command frame strips to attach the cameras to the wall, the strips are similar to velcro but supposedly don't leave a residue & will be easy to change out if I decide to mix up the display later on.  Here are some peeks...








It is a super easy way to make a dynamic display & I really love how it turned out! I look forward to expanding on it.  It feels so good to be crossing things off my list, 2011 has been magnificent so far!  Happy Wednesday lovies! xo.

  7. Thank you everyone!! I appreciate your kind words, it's such an easy project.

    I attached the cameras to the wall with Command Brand wall strips, you can get them at Wal-mart & arts & crafts store. They are similar to velcro but don't leave a sticky residue & can hold heavier things. So far they have worked perfect!!

  19. Hi Meghan, i just ran into your blog when i was searching for framed camera collections, and how others did this, but especially if i possibly could find the image that i got my inspiration from. And i did :) Close to 6 months ago i found photo #3 from the above posted and it gave me the inspiration to build a wall-collection for myself as well. To give the camera's more exposure instead of gathering dust in a cupboard. So i started the project but took a very large frame as a base and inside that one i shared-out all the smaller ones. A few days ago i finished the job and now it proudly decorates the space above my couch :) Because i posted some images from the result on Facebook, a Photography-magazine picked up the thing and asked my to write a little article about the project. So for a small impression from the result you can visit: http://www.digifotopro.nl/content/camerakunstwerk-van-jurg-roessen
    I truly want to thank you so much for inspiring me! :)

    1. They did! & we have moved 3 times since the house shown in the photos, each time I hang them with the command strips (slightly different display) but the command strips have worked great each time! :)
