When we moved into our house just under 4 years ago I had great plans for the one red wall in our dining room.
I envisioned tons of family photos vying for space, old memories jostling for position with new memories, all held together by a common thread, in this case it would be the frames, all black or silver.
Just under 4 years down the line this is what that wall looks like…
Im ashamed to say it is still bare.
This is what I received for my birthday last year and the year before…
My mission is to get those frames filled with photos and onto that wall!
I am thinking of making all the photos a sepia/antique look to further bring them all together. There will be my parents and Pauls parents wedding photos, our wedding photos, pics of Aaron, us as a family, our brothers and sisters and grandparents.
I also want to get some more silver frames.
Also, part of the plan is to have a family shoot done by Jenty sometime this year, I especially want to put her photos into the frame that says “DAD MOM ME”.
I cant wait to get going on this!

Just let me know when! Love those frames, they’re gorgeous!
Need to get Paul to agree on a time/date, will definitely let you know as soon as I have convinced him 😉
Wonderful project. I have one going up my stairway although is a total mismatch of frames from over the years
I think that’s a wonderful idea! I remember a wall in my childhood house that was filled with pics…
Tip: I’m sure you’ve heard this before but before hammering nails in the wall, place all the framed pics on the floor and play with placements until you’re sure it looks perfect… And don’t forget to twitpic when you’re done! 🙂
What a STUNNING project! I love photos. I cant wait to have our own place and be able to have a photo wall 🙂
Stop procrastinating and just DO it!
It took me a full year to unpack my dragon collection and hang up my many pictures of Damien when we moved in with my Glugs!
