Creating A Photo Wall...

A photo wall is something I have wanted to do for so long and a few weekends ago we finally got round to it. I had seen the idea all over pinterest and I also got some inspiration from a few people on Instagram but I wasn't sure how to actually go about it and what I should include. I thought it might be a nice idea to document it on here though.
I had originally decided to buy some white frames and put all of those up on the wall in a scattered design and I was going to put photos and quotes in them. But then the frames arrived in pretty crap condition which threw me off it for a few weeks, I had bought some from Asda and normally their frames and generally their homeware is fine, I've bought loads of photo frames from them before but these just looked cheap and one even broke as soon as I took it out the packaging, and as clumsy as I am, it wasn't my fault. 

I decided to completely change what I was going to do and my first idea was to hang a big picture of New York in the middle of the wall and work around it. We got the picture from Primark for only £4 months ago and I didn't really know what to do with it until now, so we put that up and then I started to add prints and pictures around it. I had picked up a few prints a while ago ready to go up, there was my Bloggers Gonna Blog prints that George got me from Charm and Gumption at least a year ago, my Camembear Print and this Personalised Print from NotOnTheHighStreet. I then found a few postcards from our first London trip and lastly I had picked up a few postcards from Paperchase. They were only about 70p and I think I got a good selection, i'll definitely be looking there in future for more to add! When I got the postcards from Paperchase I also got some Washi Tape to stick some of the pictures on. I love the way it looks and as the one I got has gold arrows, it matches really well with a select few, in particular the blogging one. I didn't want to over do it with the washi tape so for the rest I just used normal blue tack and I think it looks good! 

It has completely changed the bedroom now, before I wasn't that happy with it, it was one room I just didn't know what to do with but I think this photo wall has completely transformed it. We also took a piece of furniture out too which had been in there for too long and it looks so much bigger now and like a proper bedroom. It's nice to look over and see something there rather than just a big blank wall, I didn't think it would change the room as much as it has. I can't wait to add more to it, I think it's something I can just keep changing and adding too in the future.

I think the next thing is painting the bathroom and finally making the spare room into an office!
