I’ve displayed favorite pictures of my kids to create a unique storyboard on the dining room wall of our cottage. The black frames look stunning against the white background and the playful photos make a great conversation piece. I printed photos of my kids in black and white and inserted them in the frames.
I chose black and white over color to keep the walls and art neutral and added color to the space with toss cushions, throws, area rugs, books, plants and small accessories.
After placing my dining room table and chairs exactly where I wanted, I started hanging my frames. I couldn’t centre my table on the wall because it would have been too close to the patio located on the left.
TIP: Cut pieces of painter’s tape like I did to evenly space your frames. TIP: To prevent frames from shifting on the wall when hanging a grouping of pictures, stick Anchor Points to the bottom corners like I’ve done. They’ll keep your art nice and straight so you won’t have to re-level each frame as you add to your gallery.
Friends and family also like that I used pictures of our kids to decorate the walls, it’s such a great way to inject personality into your décor. I love to see all the tops perfectly lined up, it satisfies the perfectionist soul in me. Make sure to sign up to receive our decor and design blog posts delivered straight to your inbox.
