photo wall project


Happy Wednesday :)

I have completed what I call my "photo wall project."

I have had this awesome idea in mind for months and months, and I have finally decided to do it! It really only took me yesterday and today to do. It is a montage of 8x10's of some of my favorite things about my life with my husband: my hubby & me, our puppies, and some of our favorite places in nature.

Here are the supplies for this project:

And without further ado, I present to you...The Photo Wall:
These 12 8x10s are mounted on thick foamboard and then I hung them on the wall in our guest bedroom/study. I love it! Not to toot my own horn, but I am very proud of this project. I'm always proud of projects that I finally complete after months of having them planned out in my head. Especially when they turn out how I had imagined they should!

This pic is just so you can get some perspective as to where it is in our guest room and how much wall space it takes up, etc:
My new favorite!!!

I also have a bit of progress to show you on a few other decorating items tasks I have been working on the last few days.

The jewelry hanger is now white and looks lovely with the rest of our bedroom:

The vase in the 1/2 bathroom is filled with purple and silvery pebbles as opposed to empty (you could see the fake flower stems dangling in midair...not okay):
And lastly, I found the perfect black cube to go between Penny/Gryffin's shadowboxes:
I just kind of haphazardly tossed that candle on top of the cube...not sure what will go in/on the cube for good, but I love the layout and spacing of it. 

I hope you guys approve of my decorating changes! What would you put on/in the black cube? And FYI - I never really intended for my blog to be so decorating focused, lol. It's kind of funny. I go from these health/weight loss kicks to decorating to fashion to ranting about my life. Random blog, I know. But thanks for sticking with me through all the randomness :) 

In case you're wondering how I got all the motivation to do all this home decor stuff this week, it's because in 3 days we will have been in our townhome for a YEAR! And I couldn't believe that I still had so much to do around the house. I really would say we're not about 85% done with stuff, so I'm happy with the progress. Still some sprucing up and organizing and those darned dressers to refinish (let's not even talk about the backyard = mess), but it'll get done eventually! I just didn't want to be one of those people that had all these visions for what my home could be, but never actually see it the way I want it. Or worse, finish it just in time to show off and sell to someone else without really getting the chance to enjoy it, you know?

I'm done with today's chores - laundry, dishes, etc - so it's off to mail a letter to my great grandma then to the gym for my run!

Toodles & Cheers


  1. Love the photo wall. That's a really neat way to display photos. Good job at the decorating!! You have inspired me to get my butt into gear when I have the time and do something for Lexi's room. Can't wait to see what more creative things you do!

  2. I cannot believe you've almost been in your house a year! I think the photo wall looks amazing, and has me wanting to find a place to do something similar in my apt. Well done, my dear!

  3. The photos look so nice! Great idea.

  4. I love that photo wall! I want to do that now too. I have a set of three cubes just like that one and could never figure out what to put in them. Hopefully you'll find something perfect!

  5. Love your photo wall! I will definitely have to try that on the big, empty wall in my bedroom!
