My little gallery of frames
We have a cute little hallway between our dining room and family room that has always been begging to be decorated with something. Well, now that we have two little guys and more pictures of them than I know what to do with, I pulled the trigger and actually hung a gallery of collage frames.
This is what I did to make hanging a gallery of frames super easy (and without leaving my walls looking like swiss cheese) with the perfect result. Best of all, I did it all by myself!
First, pick all the frames you want to hang. Trace each of them exactly onto newspaper, and make a hole where the nail will need to be placed for the hangers.
After you've carefully cut out each frame from the newspaper and poked holes where the nails need to be, start to arrange the cutouts on the wall. Use masking tape or painter's tape to hang them so as not to damage the paint on the walls.
After you're satisfied with your placement, start putting nails/screws through the newspaper where you marked the hangers from the frames. Take down the newspaper as you go, and start hanging your frames.
That's it! You're doing it! Once you're done, admire your handiwork - you deserve it. I'm proud to say that when my husband came home from work and saw the wall, he didn't believe that I actually did it myself. Oh, I'm good...
