Hallway of Frames

The frames are finally up!

Remember I spray painted the frames white in preparation of this? Yeah, I finally put them up two weeks ago.

I really took my time doing this (almost 3 months!) and it is sooo worth it!

I chose my pictures carefully, thought long and hard about the design of the picture mat and tried and photographed many frames arrangement!

And here they are in our hallway. I couldn't be happier with the results!

In case you're wondering, I didn't drill any holes in the wall. Did that before and felt that it was all a bit too messy.
