My husband has been bugging me for ages to put up something on our dining room wall – preferably pictures, and he would like them to be past photos (meaning not of our kids at their current ages).
If you follow me on Facebook, then you know last week I was working on going through 6 years of photos to make this same 24-frame photo collage that Char of Crap I’ve Made created several years ago.
Do you know how hard it is to narrow down thousands of pictures to only 24?
Trust me….it’s tough.
But the hubs and I managed to get it done and tada!
Every single one of these photos stirs so much emotion in me – whether it makes my heart melt or laugh out loud, they each have special meaning.
I love the life andcolor it adds to my family and dining room areas.
Like Char, I grabbed 24 of these frames at IKEA and taped them together with duct tape. They come in packages of 2 for $3.99, so it works out to be about $2/frame. Not too shabby if you ask me.
I wasn’t sure how to hang it, so I dropped by and looked how Char did it. (Big advantage of living across the street).
She used these Picture Hanging System things from Lowes.
They have a level in them and come in a variety of sizes, so they are perfect!
I used two of them. First you mount the part with the level to the wall.
Then you mount the other part to the frame.
And it hangs like so…
Let’s just take a closer look at those cute kids.
They definitely keep me on my toes, but man I sure do love them!
