Hallway Photo Wall

I can check one "to do" off my list thanks to my husband - hanging up a bunch of our daughters' photos.  It feels good to have them up instead of in an envelope in the closet.  It makes me smile every time I see them!  

I started by picking up a bunch of the same white frames from Joann's Fabrics.  Any time I need frames I tend to get them from there when they are 50% off (which happens about every couple weeks).  They averaged about $8 a piece with the discount.  Since I had a mix of color and black and white photos, and a mix of sizes (8x10s and 10x13s), I thought putting them in the same white frame would help make them all work together.  I initially laid them out in a gallery-style arrangement to replace my "map wall" in the hallway:

However, then I happened to put them in a row and ended up liking this arrangement a lot better:

I had put them side by side without a space and ended up kind of liking how that looked. It's a bit untraditional, but I've seen it done before like this:

Plus, leaving no space between just happened to fit perfectly on the other wall in our hallway:

The cutie pies on display!  What do you think about how the arrangement turned out?

Getting the pictures up on the wall was no small feat. In fact, it took a Masters in Engineering. Check out this diagram Ross had made to make sure he spaced the nails correctly.  Man, I love him!
