When we had our building work completed in May we had our lounge decorated at the same time. Whilst getting everything ready for the building work I found a box of photos in frames from our previous house and thought they would be great to use for a photo wall. As our lounge has gold accessories – to go with the period of the house more than anything – I decided to paint the frames gold and have a go at making a photo wall with our favourite photos.
How do you get Gallery Wall frames to match?
Rust-Oleum sent us some of their spray paint to help us paint the frames and it was so much easier than I’d expected. I took the glass out of the frames, cleaned them all and laid them all on newspaper in the back garden. I then just had to shake the spray paint and then spray from side to side in even layers – so simple with thin photo frames to cover! I had so many frames to paint and each can of spray paint coated ten frames – a lot more than I was expecting!
The frames only took about twenty minutes to be touch dry and the following day I filled them with photos ready for hanging. I found it easiest to plan out on the floor how I wanted the photos to hang before putting them on the wall – and then Dave did the hanging for me!
I am so pleased with our photo wall and can’t wait to add to it as the years go by. It’s also been nice to reuse frames and give them a whole new lease of life! If you’re thinking about creating a photo wall, go for it!
