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.
