Apparently I have been on a home update kick lately. Like I mentioned here and here, we always seem to have some home project going on and here’s yet another one. While I’m not proud of it, I have not printed one single solitary professional wedding picture. I know. It’s terrible. I’m hoping to change that soon… Anyways, having Hudson has changed everything for my little family in more ways than one. One change being, I literally want to look at him or his pictures all.the.time. And when I got our family/Hudson’s six-month pictures back, I knew that I was going to be updating and rearranging our hallway gallery wall immediately if not sooner. Considering we’ve been married for two and a half years, without printing one wedding photo, and I’ve got his 6-month pictures printed and hung prior to his 8-month birthday. That’s some pretty good progress in my book. amiright?!
So, back to the important matters at hand, I had framed pictures hung here before and in comparison to this they looked so basic; but, of course I forgot to take before pictures. Why am I always forgetting to take before shots? Well, that’s a whole other problem I have. If you’re anything like me and struggle to have pictures printed, I hope this gives you the motivation to refresh some of your frames or even create a gallery wall of your very own!
The first thing I like to do is fill the frames and play with the layout on the ground. This makes it extremely easy to move and adjust as needed. I will usually take a quick picture, ensuring I get the placement just right.
Next, the hard part, getting the pictures hung on the wall. Why is it so hard to hang picture frames straight/centered/etc.?!
Once we got started, the design we were modeling after brought the frames down a little too low. We changed it up a little once we had hung about half the frames and this is what we ended up with.
Finally, I am on the hunt for something to hang centered, above all the frames. Any suggestions?
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a Happy Hump Day!
