31 Days:: Framed Photos & Gallery Walls

by jessicaturner on October 5, 2011

This is the fifth day in a series: 31 Days of Memory Keeping, check out all the posts here.

One of the easiest ways to do memory keeping is to frame your photos. Then display those photos on shelves, mantles and walls!

Right now our condo is on the market, so our relator had us pack up pretty much all of our framed photos. Nothing on our nightstands. Our gallery wall is bare.

Now, if only it would sell.

Thankfully Pinterest has tons of inspiration. Check out my photo gallery wall board here.

Becky Higgins also recently posted this amazing gallery wall.

For even more inspiration, you must check out Laura Winslow Photography’s  “Wall Art Wednesday” . It is so, so inspirational.

My cubicle at work has a wall that I am thinking of creating a gallery on. YAY!

I already have a collection of frames on my desk and I change the pictures every six months or so. I love having photos of my loved ones displayed.

Your framed photos don’t all have to be out year round. Each year I frame a photo of my kids with Santa and I only put those frames out at Christmas. They are SO fun to look at. This year I was thinking I should do the same thing with Halloween costume photos. You can totally find cute, seasonal frames on clearance right after the holidays.

Think about a photo you have, that you love, that is sitting on your hard drive right now.

Get it printed today and put it in a frame. (Maybe take advantage of this Snapfish deal?)

You will be so happy you did.

I’m not good at this. I struggle with knowing if things look good together or not. :( so my walls stay bare until i find something in a magazine and can copy it.

Beautiful! I think the art wall on your Pinterest board and the image you have posted here are my favorites. My mom is working on a gallery wall right now – I’m going to send her the link to your Pinterest board.
