Recently I added frames to my upstairs hallway. I haven't filled all the frames yet but it has been over a year of thinking about doing this, so I decided to just 'go for it'! Here is how I did it:
STEP 1 -
Find a large clean floor area and design a layout using your frames.
(take note-I switched the jute frames you see above for turquoise ones that you will see in steps 3 and 4)
STEP 2 -
Make paper templates of your frames and place them on the wall to resemble your frame layout.
STEP 3 -
Hang your frames
I find that I procrastinate on printing out photos and have a ton on my computer. I made the decision to hang my frames on the wall in the direction that looked best and fill them later because I have many photos to choose from. If you are a procrastinator like me, just go for hanging your frames like I did. Or you will never end up with photos on your walls.
I also changed out some of the original frame mats that came with the frames I used. If you love a frame but not the mat, no problem! Just go to a craft store and find a different mat. (Make sure you have the frame with you when choosing a new mat-mats come in different looks and sizes, AND cut out sizes for the photos (ie the same size mat may hold a 4x6 or 5x7).
