I finally built up the courage to display a variety of photos together. I always admire photo walls in other people’s homes, but never had one myself. I thought a wall in the living room was begging for photos.
I have so many photos from our travels, so I chose some of my favorites to display. It was as simple as printing them in black and white and framing them in black frames with white matting. (I already had lots of the frames and I picked up a few new ones at Michael’s when they were on sale.)
I’m thinking I may add a few more, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out.
Here are a few close-ups of the images. Some from our west coast road trip, Montreal and Soldier Field…
It’s pretty heavy with Oregon coast photos, so I’ll probably swap some out. But, we really liked the Oregon coast so it’s okay for now.
(The Chicago image was a photograph of Soldier Field I purchased for Ryan from a local photographer. All others are by us.)
Ryan really wasn’t thrilled about me hanging all these pictures. Something about the weeks of painstaking work to get these walls cleaned up and smoothed. But, he likes the images now that they are up. And I tried to be really careful while nailing everything.
I also put up this frame behind the sofa from our wedding. It matches all the colors in our living room perfectly.
And that’s one step closer to “finishing” the living room. It’s definitely looking homier, don’t you think?
What do you think of our new photo wall?
