I can’t think of a better way to display family photos than in a gallery wall. The first project I took on when we moved into our house was to put together this gallery wall on a budget by using old frames from Goodwill. We lived in a tiny apartment for almost 2 years and never hung up any new photographs. I don’t ever want that to happen again. I’m hoping this gallery wall will evolve and expand with new photographs over the years, especially now that we’ve decided to use a real photographer for family portraits.
The wall came together pretty easily. I used 7 frames from Goodwill and 5 from Target. Four of the ones from Target were $2 each, and the one in the middle was the big splurge at 20 bucks.
I set Robert up with some paint while I spray painted the frames outside.
Not bad for less than $30 right?
I can’t tell you how happy this wall makes me. I love walking into the house and immediately seeing pictures of my loved ones.
The only problem is now I have a bit of an obsession with Goodwill frames. I can’t go into a thrift store without checking out their frame situation. There are some pretty good finds most of the time. Recently, though, I found one for $50. I even had to ask the cashier if the price was correct. It was. I won’t be buying $50 frames from Goodwill any time soon! It’s still worth it to look through the selections though. You never know what goodies you can find there. I contemplated calling this post “popping tags for your gallery wall” until I realized the SEO might not do too well.
How do you display your family photos? Do you have a gallery wall too?
