Home Nesting Update: Photo Wall

I mentioned in a recent "inspiration for your nest" post that I was looking for inspiration for a photo collage to put up in my living room above my couch. My little collection of frames grew to a good amount, so I spent last weekend planning out my collage on the floor of my living room. This is our couch view before the collage went up:


There's a lot of wall space and the fact that we painted horizontal stripes on the wall really helped make it not seem so bare for the months it's been empty. :) After much shifting around of frames, leveling, and nailing//re-nailing, this is the result:


I'm so happy with how it just added a touch of coziness to our little place. :) I still have photos to add in the frames and I have some fun prints coming in the mail this week. It's definitely a work in progress.  Once it's more complete, I'll be sure to take more photos as well as some close-ups to show off the details of the prints. I'm just so happy things are on the walls!!

Also -- I'm thinking about taking Rachel's Style Your Space e-course to help give me a little more guidance on spicing up the place. Anyone taken it yet?  

Wishing you coziness and a happy Easter!

  3. great job! I always have to re-nail everything lol... I like the combination of art and the (soon to be) photographs! How hard is it to paint those stripes?

  4. Very nice. We are currently designing a frame wall but it's hard to commit without knowing exactly what's going to be in the frames. I love the brightness of yours. :)
