I was finally able to find all the boxes with our family photos in them. I am only missing one, that I can remember, of our whole wedding party. The search team is still out on that one, but in the meantime I realized I did not have enough shelf space to fit all the pictures I wanted to put up! Bummer! Enter Young House Love’s awesome inspiration for a frame wall. (Hop on over there and see their masterpiece!) They truly have a beautiful frame WALL…I have a frame section-of-the-wall. First reason is that I didn’t have as many photos and cool mementos as they had and secondly, they have sweet Clara…I have Tornado #1 and Tornado #2! Boys…frames any lower than the ones I put up wouldn’t have stood a chance!
I followed their advice with the cut outs of newspaper and it worked wonderfully! The worst part of this whole decorating plan was that about half of those frames I picked only had foot stands, no wall mount option so I had to add the bracket. Otherwise, a painless way to get all my favorite people in a place I can see their cute faces! (I am waiting on a few pictures to be printed and then it will be 100% finished)
