Our anniversary is coming up in 2 weeks. 2 weeks less than a year after our wedding, I finally put up our wedding photos. 'Bout time right?
This past weekend, I went to the local Ikea to grab some frames for our photos, got 'em framed & put 'em up. I ended up taking the glass out of the frames to avoid that glare that frames can get with the glass. Mostly because it seemed like too much on the big one, and if I was going to take it out of that one I had to take it out of all of them. I put the glass aside for later use for something... :-)
Yea!!!! Photos are up! Aren't we cute? I think the reason it took me so long to do this was just that I couldn't figure out which photos I wanted. I'm still not sure I picked the best options, but whatever, at least I picked some!
I like how it turned out. I'll probably add some other random things to the arrangement as time goes on, but for now it's nice to have them up.
To figure out the arrangement, I cut out pieces of craft paper in the sizes of the frames, and taped them up on the wall, using painters take between them to figure out the spacing. I then hammered in the nails through the paper, then tore the paper & tape off as I put up each frame.
I do still have quite a bit of space open on the other side of that wall that I don't know what to do with. I thought about centering this arrangement on the wall, but I didn't think it'd take up enough of the wall to look right. So, I'll be thinking about finding something else to put separately there to the right between this arrangement & the next window.
Do you have a photo gallery wall in your home? How did you arrange it? Did it take you almost a full year to get some wedding photos up too?
I will be linking this post up to these awesome sites.
