Perfect Picture Wall

If you missed the post earlier today you can catch up here. Let me show you how the rest of the room is coming… :)

I think it’s coming along pretty well. The only thing really left is to paint the corner mirror black and make a few pillows. I think it will tie everything in perfect. Oh and then there’s the open white frame. I was planning on putting an 11×14 picture in there but it was a little to small. Weird? I haven’t found another frame yet to replace it… but the longer I’ve looked at it the more I kind of like it. I can’t decide. What do you think?

Oh and here’s the picture right before we did the board and batten.

For the picture wall I started out with about 10 different frames I pulled from my secret stash… remember the one I told you about here.
how to arrange pictures on a wall
I laid everything out and decided what needed to be spray painted.

Once everything was painted I laid it all out again on the floor and re-arranged it about 5 times. The tricky part was going to be making it look just as good on the wall. I’ve seen people trace paper bags and put those up on the wall first… but I was too lazy for that. We just went at it!

So remember this $1 thrift store find? Well we started with that as our base and worked our way up from there. I think it best to start some where in the center and work your way out.

Luckily I didn’t have to worry about “perfectly” straight lines because I wasn’t really going for that look. Oh and did you notice that I stole the blue window from the bathroom… it needed a new home.

I think it turned out just how I imagined. The perfect picture wall. I love the pop of color…and the hubby was happy I used everything I had on hand for this project. However he wasn’t to thrilled about  hanging all those pictures. ;)
 Once the mirror is painted black and I make a few pillows I think it will be just perfect!
