instagram wall

remember when i was all gung ho about an instargram project and then never spoke of it again?  i promise i did finish this project.  in fact, it was complete soon after my post in march.  i just never got around to take any good pictures of it.  i still havent but i wanted to share it with you anyway. 

after my 4x4 prints from postalpix arrived in the mail, i spread all the pictures out on the table.  i tried to make sure there was a balance of color and content.  i take a lot of pictures of my dogs, so mainly i just made sure there were plenty of people pics between each dog photo.  


after figuring out how many rows i wanted of how many pictures, i found the center of my wall and started taping up the prints one by one.  i used painting tape to measure between each row.  


i love this picture it took of tara and her son
this blank wall had really been bothering me.  im glad i was able to add a little color and personality without having to paint anything.
there is only a piece of rolled up tape holding each photo.  as the days got hotter and the ac pumped harder, the corners started to roll up a bit.  i think its been bothering husband more than me.  i plan to get some double sided tape and fix this soon.  other then that, its has held up pretty well.                       (last photo was taken by aj)

i think my favorite part of this diy home decor project is that it can be easily updated with new photos at any time.  

side note:  i also have considered a similar instagram wall for the nursery, adding a photo of each of the important people in our lives.  as they get older, it will be a great tool to practice putting names with faces and learning to pray for others.

  8. It's a great strategy for businesses because Instagram followers has more than 300 million engaged and super targetable users. Users check their account several times daily to see what the people and brands they follow are saying.
