Gallery Photo Wall

Remember my frames I purchased and had leaning up against my wall.....

Well, with Hannah and Michael's help, they are all hung up. I filled all the frames with photos, Hannah cut out paper templates, Michael and I arranged the paper on the wall and then Michael hung them all. We are a perfect team! I got the idea from Pottery Barn to do the photo wall.


The best tip I ever received from an interior designer is to hang things lower than you think they should be. Things should be eye level when seated. Next time you are looking through a design magazine, look to see where things are hung. That is one of the first things I notice when I walk into someone's house - that their photos, framed art and wall hangings are hung just too high. Bringing down the wall hangings makes the room feel cozier.

I love commenting like this. Don't you feel validated?

Melissa said...

I would, if someone would leave me more comments.

Melissa said...

it does something for your self esteem to see lots of comments.

Melissa said...

imagine your surprise tomorrow, maybe tonight, when you see 10 remark-a-roos. You're going to be so excited.

I was going to comment on your comments but then I read through them all...how funny. What a great idea putting paper shapes up on the wall first...and hang them lower, I know one group of pictures in my house is too high.
