Take them out of the attic, off your computer, or out of the infrequently viewed albums on your bookshelves, and enjoy them every day. Pick a wall, corner, or entire room. If your chosen spot already has picture molding found in many older homes , your job will be easy. If not, adding new molding is not that complicated.
