dining room wall of photos

Over the weekend, with my husband's photo-hanging expertise, I added another row of photos to our dining room wall. Keeping all the frames the same is perfect for this grid-like approach.

The latest round of photos were taken by my very talented photographer friend, Jennie Slade.

Jennie also took Amelia's 4-year old photo which we hung in the stairway next to Charlotte's 4-year-old photo. Jennie totally captured Amelia's personality and the entire photo shoot was a breeze (45 minutes from start to finish!). I love having a chronology of my girls at this age, just before they start looking older. Jennie will be taking Bea's photo in 2 more years to add to our growing collection!

I really like the matching frames with the b/w photos. They looks so clean and uniform in the grid. Beautiful!

Looks great Angie! I love it. Having a gallery wall can be a real pain to put together what with all the measuring but it is always worth it, when done well.

It looks great! I have been wanting to do something similar. What frames did you use?

How did you get them so straight? I've been trying to do the same thing and cannot get them to hang straight. It looks beautiful!

Thank goodness for husbands right? I tried to hang a grouping similar to yours on my own and I failed miserably. My husband came home and saved the day. Your dining room wall looks great.

I've been trying to figure out with my large plain wall for over 3yrs! This is the perfect solution. Thanks!

Avoid furniture that has a lot of ornamentation and adornment. Furniture with script detailing and complicated woodworking can be perceived as being favored to one gender or the other. Instead consider modern clean lines that will suit both genders.

Why not in this type of decorations you will always remember the old days,memories and photos that you really treasure because it brings joy and momentum.
