Q: We found some great old family portraits when we were cleaning out my great aunt's attic and garage. I don't know who they are and don't care but would love to hang them in our living room. This would have to happen over my wife's protests because everything else is pretty contemporary. Any thoughts?
A: I think you should already be reaching for the hammer and picture hangers: nothing adds more personality to a room than personal artworks, especially family portraits.
