Family Wall

Last week I got to work constructing the Family Wall I'd always intended for my living room- on the giant, weird wall that is good for nothing else, and won't even exist as-is when we put in a new wall, and is perfect for this.

A few people have asked me some random frame/photo/photo arranging questions lately, so I took some step by steps to show you how a lazy lover of design creates a Family Wall of her own.

Here's a slide show of the photos I chose.

WARNING: Tomorrow's post will include such horrors as The Duct Tape Technique and blatant propaganda to ignore scratches in glass or to just leave frames glassless altogether. Stay tuned, and be warned, all you perfectionists out there. You might just want to wait for Monday before you come back.

I love the photos you chose! I plan on doing this in my entrance hall whenever that is renovated.

Love the wedding ring photo. I am NOT a perfectionist when it comes to decorating :)

beautiful! beautiful pictures!

we have a collection of black and white pictures going up our stairway. I'm holding off filling in the whole wall right away, rather filling it up as the family gets older. The kids love walking up the stairs looking at all the pictures of daddy as they head to bed. Especially when hes away. so sweet.

I like that the pic of bacon (? the pug?) has his good eye showing. =) How different that photo would look from the other side!
