I gathered up some of our most beloved pics of the baby, a few prints and a couple of other special items for the wall, including the Yes Ma’am, No Ma’am print from The Old Try (see my others here), How to Tie a Bow Tie – A Gentleman’s Guide, the John Derian plate he received for his third birthday, a monogrammed bib from Mother and a copy of a nautical chart of the Savannah River and Wassaw Sound from River Services in Savannah (see it on my coffee table here.)
And while we’re on the subject of the gallery wall, you really cannot beat an Ikea Ribba frame if you’ve got a pile of pics to hang on an ant-hill’s budget. I mean, they come in a whole slew of sizes and you can mix and match everything from a standard frame to a collage to a matted picture to a shadow box. Oh, and did I mention that they are totally affordable?!?! What’s not to love?
I hung these using the very same tried and true process used in the massive basement stairway gallery.
1. Trace your frames onto paper and cut out.
2. Use painters tape to move them around on the wall until you find the perfect layout.
3. Put your nail in the wall straight through the paper for each pic. Pull of the paper and hang up your art!
I’ve got a few more projects up the proverbial sleeve… stay tuned!
