Adding School Photos to our Gallery Wall

Our gallery wall is right along the wall of the stair landing, and we can see it from the living room.

I am trying oh so hard to keep this wall for more formal shots, baby portraits of each child and every other year family shots. Plus our wedding photos. I'm afraid of what might happen if I start putting too much up there, in twenty years it will just be too insane. So I think of this as a good start, since it represents 7 years of marriage and 3 children.

Plus, it provides a nice spot to rest as we make our way upstairs.



When preschool photos arrived we made a small miracle occur and both children are smiling! Seriously, you did not want to see what they looked like last year.




We actually bought the paper cutter  to trim all the printables for our son's construction themed birthday party, but it came in pretty handy for trimming school photos as well.

I popped them into a frame I had, along with a baby close-up. Hoping I can add them to the wall soon!

they came out adorable! I love gallery walls. I have tons of pictures in my house and it's always nice to see the favorites.

Candice Moretti said...

Just adorable. I'm thinking of doing the same thing. Do you suggest keeping the frame color all the same? Like, black or white, etc.?

What cutie pies! Your gallery wall is wonderful; I wouldn't worry too much about it getting too nutty -- you can always change it out rather than keep expanding it. :)
Beautiful as always!!
