Yesterday, I showed you our entry way.. and today, I thought I'd talk a little more about the floor to ceiling photo wall that you might have caught a peek of. You see, when you first enter our front door.. there is this little wall off to the side that is home to the doorbell fixture, the central air exchange switch, the thermostat and of course a plug in.
All of which are running straight up the center of the wall.. leaving it pretty much useless.
As soon as I saw the wall.. this fabulous wall from House Tweaking came to mind! The only thing I could think to do was hide them amongst a wall of white frames.. thank goodness I had a ridiculous amount to choose from since barely anything had been put up on the walls since the move. I went 'shopping' in our closet of 'things to hang' ..gathered up all things white and went to town!
James did all of the hanging of course (he is kinda awesome at it).. otherwise there would have been too many holes in the wall to count (I kind of suck at it)! ha ha! We started at the bottom and worked our way up.. making a straight border with the frames as we went.. and filling in the middle area with assorted smaller frames.
Thank goodness it worked out.. since we didn't pre plan it at all! lol Once we got close to the top, we made our edge along the ceiling and worked our way back down to meet up with the rest.
After all of the frames were hung, I went and switched out art work in a lot of them (since the frames all came from different rooms in our previous house).. added some photos and viola! ..camouflaged 'stuff'! lol Now instead of having a little basket case every time I looked at the wall (I know I know.. it wasn't that bad, no actually it kinda was hee!) ..well, now I see calm and happy! ha ha ha!
What about you.. have you ever disguised 'unsightly' things around the house by hanging frames around it or maybe even right over top of it? ..cause trust me, if we could have hung one big frame over the whole shebang, we probably would have! hee!
