{New and Good... A Picture Wall}

i love the way our picture wall was before.

{old pic to refreash your memory}

but when we painted the walls, i knew it was time for soemthing new.
i wanted it to be a bit more random and colorful.
then i saw this photo

it was on someone's pinterest page...but i can't remember who??:)
i loved everything about it...the colors...the randomness...exactly what we were looking for.
so i copied it.:)
kind of.

i bought almost all of the frames at walmart and target.
i went for the most inexpensive ones i could find because i knew i would be painting them.

once i had bought what felt like a gazillion frames, i started working on the arrangement.
i just laid it on the floor during nap time and played with it till i had it just right.
it was actually fun...kind of like building a puzzle.
i took a quick picture then cleaned it up.

i printed the picture and used that to plan what colors and photos would go where.

choosing the paint was tricky.
i spent many an hour in front of that huge wall of acrylic paints at hobby lobby and michael's.

i love a good project mess.

once all the photos were in the right frames, we laid everything out on the floor again.
hanging everything was tricky. (especially since it was 9 o clock pm  the day before janey's party...sorry baby!)
the fact that things were a bit more random and unmeasured was good though.
dave started with the bottom line since we knew we wanted that to be level and then we just built up.


i think it looks amazing in the room and adds just the right pop of color.

i think it will be pretty easy to add to as well.
i would like to go a bit more up...and out.

i was thinking about a pretty bunting over the top...what do you think?? too much??
maybe underneath? maybe on the fireplace instead????
who knows:)

one of my new favorite views in the house!!:)

here are some of the goodies i used.
you are my sunshine print (looks like she's on vacation!:) )
you are loved print - free when i purchased the sunshine one.
bird plate from pier one

have a happy day,

  1. I adore the colors. I love the happy colors. I can't believe how it brightens up the room.. have I said I love the colors you picked? Your family room looks so welcome and inviting! Cheery and delightful. Let me just say that it was well worth the effort you put into it! Well done Cindy!

  2. What a wonderful and fun idea! Thanks for sharing =)

  3. Beautiful ! Love all the different shapes!

  4. Cindy, it looks amazing!! I LOVE it. Thanks for sharing the links to the printables.

  5. I love it!!! It makes me want to paint all my picture frames :)
    Definitely add some bunting to the fireplace and it will be so colorful!

  6. I love love love it!!! Great work Cindy, oh your home is so pretty and inviting and filled with love!!
    The bunting would look great even above the pics and I like how you have room to add to your wall. Isn't it more satisfying when you stand back and look at your own craftiness and all the personal touches, it really makes a home I think.
    I have recently done something like this, but I am one thing away from taking the pics. Thanks for the links for the free printables xo

  7. Ahhhhhhh Cindy!!! I love it! What a beautiful picture wall you made! LOVE the colors and shapes you chose. Will you please come do a wall for me?! I have the I love us print and the home print too! They are just sitting in frames on my desk because I don't know where to put them. Your wall is so colorful and fun...I adore it!

  8. PS. I meant to say also that I love that when you took the picture of your photo wall you didn't pick up the toys that were on the floor behind the couch. I like you even more now! :)

  9. Wow Cindy! It looks so great! The colors are so fun and happy, just like I imagine your home to be. You did a great job and you have inspired me to finish mine!

  10. love love LOOOOVE how this project turned out, cindy - it's amazing!! soooo cheerful and happy - i love all the shapes and colors!! actually, i love everything about it - and now i love that tjmaxx print even more, it coordinates so well!! it's beautiful, cindy - you must be so happy with it!!

  11. Girl, I need your energy and motivation. First you organized all of your photos from your computer onto disks, etc, and now your photo wall is done! I LOVE it. It is beautiful and fun and so very happy. What an amazing job you did. I will probably come back and look at it several times, because I love it so much.

    ps. On your thankful list, I also used to love when Boyd sang in his monitor. So sweet. :)

  12. that looks amazing!!! such fun and cheerful colors. Totally brightens.

  13. FAB-U-LOUS!
    Yay! I love it!
    You are right.Great pop of color. Love the transformation.
    How did you print you printables? Did you print them at home or at a photo store?

  14. Looks wonderful!! great job!
    Have a fabulous weekend!!


  15. Looks great and quite colorful! You did a wonderful job.
