How to display old family pictures.

 This has been a project that I have been thinking about for a long time.  How to display old pictures.

I was definately surprised to find out how much my kids didn't know about their ancestors.  As I tell stories I want them to be able to put a face to the people.  So I found this old frame spray painted it black.

 Bought a piece of 2 x 4 beadboard at Home Depot and cut it to fit in the frame.  It comes white so I sprayed it black and sanded it to death.  Then rubbed a brown glaze on the top.  I decided to hang the pictures from jute so I hot glued the jute to the frame and nailed the beadboard into the frame.

 Then the fun part, finding old pictures to display and telling the stories that go with them.

How do you display your old family pictures?
