Memory Hall

Happy Monday, today, I give you my Memory Hall. My favorite moments of all time. No boring portraits or fake smiles here, all of the pictures I chose are real moments that represent something to me. I can’t think of a better way to give life to the hall in our home. I love the colorful frames on the grey wall.

How I did it:

I started by painting our hall Slate Grey. So much better than a boring white hallway already!

I added a chair rail, painted it white and hung it at eye level.
I collected different sized frames (super cheap from Good Will) and primed them with white
primer. I used the spray paint for plastic because I think the paint sticks better.

Then I painted the frames bright colors.
Printed out my “Favorite Memories” in black and white. This was the hardest part because I had to pick only ten pictures with a good mix, naturally I wanted them all of my babies!

Then I hung the pictures to the wall, with the bottoms resting on the chair rail.

I love the way it turned out, now I am reminded of my favorite moments everyday

    This is such a fun and easy idea!! I LOVE it. And now I am inspired….we don’t have a suitable hallway in our current house, but an empty wall just might work!!! Thanks!

    How long have you had these up? Do they stay on the wall well enough? I would be afraid of little kids running through the hall and the frames inching off the ledge.

    LOVE THIS! I have often thought of putting all of my love (family photos) in the hall because I have so many that I want to share. This is a really neat idea….I think I’ll do like 3 rows….I REALLY LIKE THIS! Thanks for sharing.
