So, I have been wanting to do a picture wall for like FOREVER, but kept putting it off. Over the last few months I have been keeping my eye out for cheap, black frames to complete my project. While visiting family in TN, I found a seven piece kit which included 3- 4X6 fames, 1- 8X10, and 1- 4X6 collage, and 2 shelves all for $9.99. Can you say SCORE??!! The largest frame for our family picture (which I haven't picked up yet) was $14.97 at IKEA and the the collage of 4- 4X6 was marked down to $3 at Kmart after Christmas.
I got all the frames and shelves out along with my fabulous vinyl wall saying and just began playing around with the layout on my floor. I measured the wall where I was going to put everything. Using the tape measure, I set it at the exact measurement and set it on the floor as my guide for the width. Then I just kept trying different positions until I came up with one I loved. I got my wonderful camera out and took a picture of it before my girls came to destroy my 30 minutes of hard work. Then I got on my computer and began playing with the millions of pictures I have of the girls, cropping and coloring them just right. After I printed all the pictures and put them in the frames, my wonderful husband (who just woke up from midnights) obeyed my directions and hung them all up for me!! :) He loves doing that as I bark orders "a tad to the left, no up, no down." ESPECIALLY when he's only had a few hours of sleep. Nonetheless, the project is done- SUCCESS... and my husband didn't even fall down the stairs trying to hang the stuff!! I LOVE the final product. Now to the adjoining wall (ignore that in the pictures, I'm trying to come up with a plan for that one.)
I'm a wife and a SAHM of two beautiful girls, Madysen 3, and Presley 1. Besides taking care of my family, I love photography. If I ever figure out what I'm doing, I'd love to start my own photography business. My new passion has been little projects around our house to make it feel more "homey". My husband is awesome and always helps make my visions come to life with his incredible handyman skills. This blog is just about the chaotic life of a mommy with two small children who tries to do it all as best as she can!! Hope you enjoy our madness!!!
