Our Picture Wall is Finally Finished!

As a little reminder, here’s where we started: after purchasing and spray painting my frames, I traced & numbered them all on newspaper and started laying them out… After getting everything hung, I decided it wasn’t quite right, and ended up deciding to redo it!  Despite my reluctance to put even more holes in our poor wall, I just couldn’t take it anymore. I ended up bringing back the piece that originally hung above our couch to give the whole collage a little bit more weight. I definitely think it helped balance everything out. I still maintained some of the variety I was going for as the sets of pictures on either side don’t match exactly, just somewhat – which I like.

Overall I’m pretty pleased with the outcome!

    I like it Kate! Good Job!

    I saw this on pinterest last week and I want to do it:

    We already have some wires that we have hung, and used clothes pins to hang pictures (but not in a frame). It looks really cute, but I like the idea of the picture frame!

  • This looks awesome, Kate!  I really like this configuration a lot.  And that center frame with the quote…I love that.  What a beautiful message to define your family.  🙂

  • You are seriously so amazing at this kind of stuff! I LOVE what you did with your wall, could you come do that for mine now too…. 🙂

    Decorating is ALWAYS a process. And even once I think I'm done, there's always some tweaking afterwards. I definitely like your last wall collage the best. Very balanced, but still maintains lots of interest. Nice job Kate! That was no easy feat I'm sure!!

  • Looks very nice, Kate. Good thinking to tape up some newspaper before you put any nails in. And you're right. There's no wrong way. As long as you like how it looks in the end, that's all that matters! 🙂

  • Oh I love it! You did such a great job! 🙂

  • It looks awesome! The newspaper is such a good idea and I LOVE the abstract letters that spell out Bro! So cool!

    I love it!  It looks so great!  Now if you would just come over to my house and do that for me!  I hate putting frames on the wall almost more than anything so our house never looks too cute.  Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better.  I look forward to following along!

  •  thanks 🙂

    & that frame looks super cool! I especially love the colour they chose to paint it 🙂

  •  thank you! My grandmother got me that for my college graduation… definitely one of my favorites 🙂

  •  aww thanks 🙂 third time's the charm i guess!

  •  so true… and it doesn't help that I thoroughly enjoy rearranging haha – most things just don't involve adding 20 more holes to the wall 😛

  •  yes, that was definitely helpful the first time around… it would have been a mess without it!

  •  thanks!! 🙂

  •  thank you! i took me forever to figure out those letter pictures haha – so glad our name only has three letters!

  •  thank you 🙂

    I love your final configuration. I'm working on a photo wall at the moment, it looks easy to do but, its a little tricky. Thanks for the inspiration.

  • Thank you! I know what you mean {obviously, I've changed mine twice already!} It defnitely helps to plan ahead 🙂 good luck!
