Art-astic! Photo Display; Guest Project

I liked this party link, from Jen at Piney Flats Style, because it is a simple way to display candid shots for a big impact. This is what she did:

Today I went on the hunt for my 20 picture frames…remember I needed 20 8×10 frames (I didnt care what the finish they just needed to all be the same) and I needed 20 white mats that fit a 5×7 picture.. I went to 7 different stores and nobody had what I needed.  There was not enough of the same frames at every store.  I was getting a little discouraged thinking my picture wall was not going to happen.  My last resort was none other than the Walmart.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to find what I needed and if I did, what would the price be.

I believe it was fate because I found exactly 20 frames and they already had the white mats.  Let me tell you I cleaned them out!  I had to do some digging (picture me in the floor with picture frames scattered all around me .they were all in a big bin for $2.00 each and I had to search for matching ones.  I’m sure I looked like a crazy lady but I got my frames and headed to the house to get started..Now you know I like to put my pictures backwards(I like to see the pretty ones first)so here’s what I did:
1)got my laser level & tape measure out & did my layout on the wall (it took me 1 1/2 hours and I was ready to pull my hair out but I gotter done)
2)primed and spray painted all frames white
3)printed out all black & white pics of “the girls” on my new hp photosmart printer
4)Literally watched paint dry
5)Insert mat & pic and hung on the wallALL FINISHED!!! Hope you enjoy

 

Almost got it done

Doing my layout without pulling all my hair out
