How to: Family Photo Display Wall

How to: Family Photo Display Wall by The Sweet Spot Blog #decor #diyI really wanted to create a family photo display wall after Baby E was born so she would grow up seeing pictures of her loved ones every day.  Most of our extended family members live far away, and I felt like a photo display wall would help her feel more connected to them.  My sister came to visit a few weeks after Baby E was born, went to work on the wall and did a beautiful job!  She is that ‘creative type’ that just looked at the available space, the various frame sizes, eyeballed it and it looked great!

About a year later, when Baby E started pulling up and ‘cruising’ along the walls, I had to move things around.  And once you start jacking with a photo display wall like that… are hosed!  I moved several frames out of her reach and tried to put the puzzle back together in a different way with no luck.

The wall sat in disarray until this past weekend.  I was feeling very motivated and did what we ‘non-creative types’ do and strategically and carefully planned out the family photo display wall, spending far too much time over thinking the placement of each frame.  I should have titled this post ‘Family Photo Display Walls for Dummies’!

Here is my ‘How to” approach for creating a Family Photo Display Wall:

Steps 1 & 2: Photo Display Wall by The Sweet Spot Blog #decor #diy Measure the ‘active space’ on the display wall where you want to showcase your photos.  Take craft or butcher paper and create a paper template the size of your display wall.  Once you are happy with your photo arrangement, outline the frames with pencil (crayons work well too!) and make little notes so you remember which frame goes where.

Step 3: Photo Display Wall by The Sweet Spot Blog #decor #diyHang the paper template onto the display wall exactly where you want the photos to be positioned.  Enlist helpers, and with your ‘little helpers’ be sure to share the tape measure!  After all, she did share her step stool with Daddy! :)

Steps 4 & 5: Photo Display Wall by The Sweet Spot Blog #decor #diyNow is time for the hammer and nails.  Line up and actually hang the frames onto the paper template following the pencil outline.  When you are happy with placement, remove both the framed photos and the paper template, leaving the nails in place.  Then rehang the frames in their proper and final position.  That’s it – you now have a beautiful, family photo display wall!
