Having a new baby (the most beautiful baby in the world, btw), I think I literally take around 20 photos a day. I'm obsessed with documenting everything she does...every pose, every smile, every cry. I mean really, how could I not be obsessed with pictures of my beautiful girl?!!
The trick was trying to find a way to display all of these photos. I knew I wanted a gallery wall, I knew I wanted a random mix of frames and I knew I wanted to be able to quickly change out my photos. After a lot of thought and Pinterest surfing, I had a plan...I was going to wrap wire around random frames and hang the pictures with mini-clothes pins!
I started off with some ugly gold frames I picked up at a local thrift store for a few bucks each.
As far as paint, I went to Lowes and chose two shades of grey and one shade of mint green. Painting the frames took longer than I thought. It was easy, but there were so many nooks and crannies I had to get into.
Once the frames were painted, I wrapped them tight with picture frame wire. On some of the frames, I looped the wire around the edges and on others, I attached the wire to the back of the frame.
I think it turned out great! This was such a simple project and I love being able to swap out my photos on a whim. This is definitely a great alternative to a traditional gallery wall.
