A couple weeks ago I created a fun family picture wall gallery around our tv and wow, what a difference it made! I have always wanted to create a family picture wall gallery but never seemed to have the time to print the pictures, find frames and get them hung up. I created this wall gallery for the HomeGoods Design Happy blog last week and it was just the motivation I needed to get the job done.
Here was the wall before.
I love how the TV is now not the focal point of the wall. TV’s are always so tough to decorate around and creating a picture wall gallery is the perfect solution to “tone down” the TV.
With modern technology, it’s so easy to snap pictures with your phone and capture just about every second of every day. My mom and I were actually talking the other day about how so many of our pictures never get printed though and just live on our phones or in our computer.
For this project, I used CVS One Hour Photo (I have used Walmart One-Hour photo too in the past) and in under 10 minutes, I had created an account and selected my pictures to be processed.
This room has had many looks over the past few years, it has gone from a playroom, to a reading room, to my makeshift office and now, back to another tv room. -ha.
Creating a picture wall can be a great way to display seasonal family pictures, pet memories or simply a collage or your favorite moments. I plan on creating another fun family picture wall gallery in our family room that is currently under-going a makeover. Stay tuned, we partnered with Shaw Flooring and the new hardwoods are looking amazing! Be sure to head over to the Design Happy Blog at HomeGoods to see my full DIY tutorial on how to create this amazing photo wall.
Disclosure: I was compensated by HomeGoods to create this family picture wall and was given gift cards to complete the project. All opinions and words are 100% my own. I think the wall gallery is pretty fabulous ;).
