Build a Photo Display Board

I'm always making stuff!

Are you?

It's always been a way of life for me

but now that I blog about my DIY

I feel like I have a hall pass!

There's always another project.

Love that.


I have a blank wall above my sofa.....

What!!

not anymore.





This wall is always changing.
(pretty much like the rest of my house!)

But I have been wanting to make a large photo display

so I decided to go for it before the holidays

so the family can enjoy it.

I like wall decor that is large scale and meaningful.

So I grouped the photos onto a frame that I built

using fence boards and underlayment.

This is what the construction looks like on the back:





I stained and white washed the boards

and painted the interior gray.





I made life easy by just taping the pictures on.

With a semi-gloss or gloss paint base, they should be interchangeable.





An easy project

that could house all black and white or sepia toned pics too.
















Filling blank walls one project at a time.

Glad you're coming along!

what a great idea. i don't like when people don't think you should display your photos...it's your flippin' home, where else should you display them, then?? perfect for holiday time.
