Framing the Walls

This past week I completed a long-overdue project and figured it was time to share it with you. Aren’t I nice ;)

Okay, this is how it all began…

(please ignore the beautiful Caricature)


After letting all of it sit on the kitchen table for a few days we moved our work to the floor for more space.


After rearranging frames for almost a week I got the final layout figured out and decided it was hanging time. Thanks to the internet I found the most BRILLIANT way to hang pictures…

It looked something like this


Here’s an up-close look of what your frame will look like:

Using this method with all the frames made it so ridiculously easy to hang everything exactly where I wanted it. It made the process go by crazy fast.

Gotta love tips from the internet :)

So, after doing this method with all the frames I ended up with a brand new looking wall.

Here is the finished product

Our new and improved living room!

What do you think? Now that I have both these projects completed and hanging I almost want to swap which walls they are on. However, that would be way too much work so it’s definitely not happening!

It only took me a year and 8 months to get something on the walls. At this rate I should have our home decorated in about 6 1/2 years.

Hooray for goals!

    Looks great, and thanks for the how-to link! As our roomies are moving out, I’m realizing that the majority of stuff on the walls was theirs! :\ So now, I’m looking for goodies to hang up. Getting some great ideas from you and Nicole. :)

      It is the best and easiest how-to I’ve ever seen. I have got lots of wall hanging idea’s, it’s just DOING them that I slack on.

  2. Wonderfully awesome job, Cassie! I like how it’s shaping up. I also like your “6 1/2 years” comment. :) I miss you and hope all is well!
