Mmmm hmmm. I'm finally getting around to redoing the photo gallery in our back staircase. Before the walls were painted I had a very simple photo display going on in this space.
Well, rather than put things right back where they were, I decided to beef up the display. (I also needed to add some pictures of our youngest son who hadn't made the wall yet. He's 3 years old and we've decided to keep him, so it's time for his cute face to grace the walls, too :)
This is my favorite inspiration photo...
I love how the frames start right down near the stairs. I'm going to attempt this. Any guesses on how long it will be before one ends up in pieces on the stairs?
I'm also going to add some white frames into the mix.
I think the black and white frames add a little more interest.
I know a lot of gallery walls consist of all black and white photography. While I do like that look, I am using color photographs. I like to see my boys' blue eyes, rosy cheeks and sun-bleached hair.
I started by spreading all the frames out on the floor and configuring an appealing arrangement.
I know. It doesn't look that appealing yet. I then made templates by tracing the frames onto paper and grocery bags. I taped the templates to the wall.
That's as far as I've gotten. Now I've got to go chauffeur the kids to various activities. Here's hoping the templates remain taped to the wall until I have a chance to hang the actual frames.
Stay tuned... I'm determined that this project will take less than a month to complete :)
If you haven't done so yet, go enter the giveaway. I'll announce the winner on Thursday!
