With great new family photos to display, I needed a new place to display them. The hallway across from my study is perfect because I can look out through the glass doors and enjoy the photos! I’d always wanted to do a large-scale gallery wall similar to our Instagram gallery wall in the mud hall.
Keeping with the theme of “light & bright” throughout the house, I found these frames at Michael’s while they were having a 50% off wall frames sale. It took a trip to all 4 Michael’s stores in Austin to get 9 because each store only had a couple left (except for 1 store that had plenty that had been dropped and damaged). I love the floating matting and cleanness to these frames. They will really let the photos shine!
Black and photos would have really set these frames off in a chic way, but I wanted to bring in the beautiful colors of the photos. For this gallery, I mixed photos from this year’s family photos with some photos that I had taken (here are some recent tips to DIY frame-worthy photos) and some from last year’s family photos.
I love how this turned out and where it’s placed. It was really the perfect spot! Any hallway has potential to be a great family photo gallery. It’s difficult to find the right mix of frames when you mix & match, so I like to keep it simple and do a grid of matching frames.
It should be easy to rotate some new favorite photos into the mix later on and any project that can evolve is a winner for me.
Do you have a family photo gallery wall in your home? We’d love to see it!
