Turning a house into a home you love one DIY project at a time

Entry Photo Collage Wall

Entry Photo Collage Wall
The entry way wall is complete! 
 
I absolutely love how this turned out! This was a much needed project that served two purposes. First it filled a blank wall and secondly it served to cover a couple holes from where the previous owners had screws, etc in the wall. 
 
Items for the wall: 
-One frame that currently contains a verse,already had on the entry table
-Set of 10 picture frames (included 2-8×10, 4-5×7 and 4-4×6) from Amazon
-Letter ‘H’ from Michaels
-‘Live’, ‘Love’, and ‘Laugh’ words from Michaels
-Metal sign from Magnolia Market (HGTV Fixer Upper Joanna Gaines store)
-DIY anniversary print 
 
The H and live, love, laugh were white when I got them. First step was to get those painted. I painted them with two coats of grey.
For the anniversary sign, I found my inspiration on Pinterest/Etsy. I fell in love with this kind of sign before we got married so I knew I wanted one, but I didn’t want to pay the $$$ for it, so I decided to make my own. To do that I found different pictures online of architectural number end even took my own photo including from our front door to add a special personalized touch to the date.
 Here is an up close of the verse and metal wall sign.
This frame changes depending on the season. It is generally either a bible verse or a themed subway art printable.
Once I finished prepping all my items for the wall, it was time to set it up.
 To get my layout, I first laid everything out on the floor to get a visual before I started actually hanging things on the wall. I moved items around to get a good balance and look. 
 
Taking it from the floor to the wall I used cardboard and paper to lay my initial format up on the wall.
 
Once I got the layout I liked, I started adding the non-picture items to their spots up on the  wall.
 
After making minor shifts and changes I added the picture frames and set up the table. 
 

I ordered the pictures from Shutterfly. Once they arrived I added them to the frames to finish the job.

I hope you enjoy.

 
❤️ Margaret
