my photo wall





Okay, so it has been waaaaay too long since I've posted anything cute/pretty/fun on the old blog! So, without further ado, introducing....my photo wall!








I've been wanting to do this since the day we moved in, and after living in this house for 5 whole months, I finally got around to it last night. I only have my husband to thank for it! He basically told me last night that "he's sick of staring at these empty frames leaning against the wall"...and so off to work we went. Thanks for getting my butt into gear, babe!



At first I wasn't really sure what pictures I wanted to use, but I definitely wanted to use color, so I went with pictures from this shoot back in the summer. My hope is that we'll get family photos this summer with all 4 kids, and Gray and I as well, so these will do until then! We hung the frames using this method by Becky Higgins, and it worked out sooooo well. Almost no fighting while we worked! (hee hee! Come on, we all know that we fight with our husbands when hanging stuff on walls...it's inevitable!) The frames are from Ikea and the size of the pictures are 11.5"x11.5". I printed all of the photos on my printer, and now that all is said and done....I love it!









And now the next project on the never-ending list of house projects is finishing the basement. Wish me luck!

What an incredible idea - it looks amazing! And I was told that when you are deciding if you can marry the man you love first hang wallpaper together (I am sure your project would make a fine subsitute)

Talia, your wall looks super cute! Now I have a bizarre question, I saw a pic of your cake pops and wondered what you stuck them into so they stood up? Did you just wrap it in tissue paper. I have been trying to come up with something forever and all I can think of is that floral foam!
My email is kristytanner@shaw.ca. Thanks!

Hi. I went to Ikea to get the frames and they look off white. Yours look white. Perhaps they have stopped selling the ones you have? Did you happen to paint yours??

I've pinned this image of your photo wall on Pinterest. It's just so darn great! I actually included it in a post I did about inspiration for my office. Here is the link! http://www.mandicresswell.blogspot.ca/2012/07/my-office-inspiration-board.html
