My Red Wall... A Work in Progress

For anyone who has followed the progress of our main rooms remodel... (here)... you will wonder what I have done with my red wall. Yeah. I'm sure you've been losing sleep wondering what I have done with my red wall.

So here is what we are doing. Please ignore the fact that 9 is a bit crooked. I fixed it, but lost the light and couldn't get a good photo after that. And 10 and 11 are a bit off... I'll have to fix that too. It's a lot harder to do than you would think. Or at least than I thought. You don't want to see the number of holes I put behind 7. Then I got smart and cut out pieces of paper with the brackets marked, taped them on, and then drove the holes through the paper. It worked great except for with 10 and 11.

Obviously the frames will be filled with photos, but I have to select which ones I want to put in, then have them printed. I was not sure if the wall was big enough for 8x10's and 5x7's, but it was.

There are two schools of thought... some like the idea of one frame per person (since we have 12 people.) Others like the idea of putting photos in which show more than one person, but all 12 of us get shown over all. Which do you think would be best? And while we are at it, any votes for what photos to put in?
