We had a few summer projects around here like we always do. I have already shared the closet and next up is our upstairs hallway.
For years we have had a very mismatched gallery wall full of family photos and I was eager to clean it up. Here's how it looked before...
You can see this hallway from downstairs, so I wanted to paint the wall a fun color. We actually now have this same color over the hood in our kitchen, on our bedroom dressers, and one wall in our family room.
I thought of hanging a new gallery wall, but really wanted something easier to switch out. After a bunch of brainstorming and Pinterest-ing, I came up with magnetic frames. I bought three big barn wood frames and we bought sheet metal at the hardware store. I wanted this to look cuter than that though, so we stretched some fabric over the metal and taped it down before popping the metal into the empty frame.
When we took down the photos we scanned in a ton of them since they were from the pre-digital era, then I had some of our very favorite photos reprinted.
Love that our favorite family memories are still there and can be easily switched out and added to anytime I want.
