Happy Monday y’all! I thought I’d kick things off this week with a little DIY project that takes any boring apartment/dorm wall to a whole new level! I found inspiration for this project on Pinterest weeks ago, but wasn’t sure exactly how I’d incorporate this into my home space. I live alone right now and use my living room as a place to display most of my photos of family and friends. However, I’ll be adding a roommate to my apt this summer (woo hoo!) so I need to find another way to display all of my photos and leave the living room as a common space for the two of us. My first thought… the photo wall! I finally had some free time this weekend to work on it, and I’m pretty happy with the results.

:: Photo Wall Tips ::
1. Choose a wall for your photo display and clean it off, otherwise the pictures won’t stick
2. Lay out your photos on a large surface as a mock up of what the wall will look like
3. Begin posting your photos on the wall. I suggest using Command Strips, double sided tape, or sticky tack. (if in doubt, ask your landlord for an approved hanging agent)
4. Use a ruler to measure the space between each photo to ensure even rows and columns. In this photo, I used .5 in-between.
