We're sorry Ikea!

Have you ever looked at photo frames for sale in shops? They always have a weird sample photo inside. Usually very boring, very fake photos. My friend Matthew and I wondered how you get to be one of the "photo frame people", we thought it'd be hilarious to go to a shop armed with photos of ourselves and replace the boring sample photos with personal smiley ones of us! Last night, we decided we'd go for it. We went to Tesco, printed off our photos and headed to our local Ikea in Belfast. 

If you don't know me in real life you won't know that I'm the most awkward person and I'm about as subtle as a brick. For this reason I let Matty do most of the hard work; dismantling frames and slotting in our photos. I kept a look out for staff and did a lot of bad acting anytime someone came near us!

I'm going to apologise in advance for the bad photo's that are to follow (my boyfriend will be so ashamed) but its hard to take a great photo when you're under pressure and trying to be subtle!


Just chilling on a bedside table

Yes, this is us in a glass, haha!

I won't lie, there were a few awkward moments with other shoppers, the worst being when a girl working there approached me and said she wanted to ask me a weird question. I crapped myself a little. It turns out she just wanted to know where I got my shirt from, phew!

Thanks for reading everyone, hope you enjoyed our crazy little evening!

  1. Haha! This is hilarious! I can't believe you managed to get so many done and replaced without getting caught! I wonder whether people took your frames home.

    1. Oh thank you! I know, I was amazed haha definitely thought we'd get caught! I hope so, I hope somebody liked our photos :-) a friend just told me that they were in the store today and we're still in the frames, yay! x
