Art Grouping: White Frames and White Mattes

Remember when I was itching? It didn't take long for us (Trav and I) to get on top of it. I decided to go with white frames and black and white pictures. I felt that the white would brighten the space, and the black and white pictures were the classiest option. My husband is a champ. He LOATHES putting holes in our walls. (I guess he should have thought about a hole-less prenup, but I know the decorator in me just wouldn't have been able to comply.)

I lined out the grouping on the floor, and he took it from there. I must mentioned that all frames came from the thrift store, and cost under $5 a piece. I sprayed them white with a can of $3 spray paint. What do you think?
My next project is to find some cute nick nacks to decorate the buffet underneath. For now I have a few vintage items I've picked up at the D.I. the cute tea cup and saucer was $1, and I picked up the vintage tea treasure for .50.
Oh, and since our wall was pinch free green, we decided to be festive too.  Belated St. Patty's greetings!

I'm starting to think everyone has a cutely decorated house but me!

I must have missed the sign up sheet for that when it was passed around in relief society.
