Agates

It's no secret that I tend to collect things and lately agate slices have been on my radar .

Once I had a decent amount I decided to frame them and cover the walls of our powder bath .  

There are 10 framed agates and once you are in the bathroom with the door closed it looks really pretty . 

It is so much better in person than in these pictures . Unfortunately I don't own a wide angle lens and this bathroom does not receive ANY natural light which makes for rather underwhelming pictures . You will just have to trust me that it looks pretty . 

 This room is the only room in our house that isn't painted white . For the most part I am loving the white walls but dark walls were needed in this space to contrast with the white frames and jewel-toned agates . 

Other changes to this bathroom are the light fixture and mirror  - the light fixture was in the guest bathroom at our old house and the gold mirror is a thrifting find . 

I like this sort of project because it is high impact and comes together quickly :)

If a rock can be framed then I guess just about anything can and nature's art is so lovely, why not?! I have a pr of agate bookends and wish I could play up their impact more; I can imagine how stunning your unique wall art is in person.

I think is a great idea! I tend to collect tiles. One of the easiest ways I have found to show them is putting them on frames. The same for small mementos, travels souvenirs, etc.
