Hi there! I sure hope you are having a more relaxing Friday than I am.
Iâ€™m juggling watching Henry while trying to make three huge deadlines; therefore, I am freaking out. So Iâ€™m just popping in to say â€œhi!â€ and tell you about a little DIY project I took on a few weeks ago.
Our photo gallery staircaseâ€¦
I was inspired by Young House Loveâ€™s hallway, as Iâ€™m sure thousands and thousands of others were. I took this project on slowly, doing a diagonal of about five or six frames before committing to doing an entire collage.
YHL has a great tutorial about using newspapers to figure out the layout of the frames. Truthfully, I just eyeballed it. It kind of shows, but I still think it looks pretty good. I may move around some of the frames when
I have free time Henry goes to college.
YHL not only frames family pictures; they do little mementos, too. I liked this idea a lot and have been framing all sorts of thingsâ€¦ from a piece of my grandmotherâ€™s wedding veil to a sheet on different types of tropical fish.
The pictures of our family and friends are great because when I walk downstairs with Henry, we look at all the pictures and identify grandmas and grandpas. I kept some of the frames blank so I can add in new pictures over time.
All of the frames were from IKEA, so this project was relatively inexpensive. It sure looks pretty, whether youâ€™re looking at the staircase from the office, the front door, or from the top landing.
While I wrote this post, Henry amused himself in his new ball pit. LOVE THIS THING.
I want to crawl in.
Have a good one! I hope everyone makes their Friday deadlines and has a fun, stress-free weekend!
