Martha, Eat Your Heart Out

So, I have FINALLY completed my photo wall...that I have wanted to do the ENTIRE time that we have lived in this house, but couldn't bring myself to do because I HATED my green walls.

I printed them all with a sepia tone so that they would be cohesive. I took a lot of the photos, and then collected some others that I love.

There are:

a couple of photos from Katie,
a couple from Naomi (our regular babysitter),
one from Anne,
one from the Washington Post,
a four generation picture of me, my mom, my grandma, and my girls,
and some old photos,
including both our parents' wedding photos,
a baby picture of Troy and one of me,
and our wedding photo.

And there are also two signs,
one that says family,
and one that says familis are forever.

I have one more family sign, but I am not quite done paiting it yet.

And I love it!

What do you think?

I love it. I have wanted to do something like this forever, but I have to buy more frames and that doesn't make Jed to thrilled!

Love how classy all those black frames look. Where'd you get them all?
You are very fancy indeed.
And kids photos, fyi -- are amazing. You da' bomb.

Your collage looks great!! Del enjoys creating different collages of photots, too.

As for being a "single mom" again...hang in there; it does get better (thinking back to Del's Acclamation days) :)

I love sepia pictures. The family sign on top is really cute too.

Lara said...

WOW! It looks great!

Ben & Anne said...

I already told you this today, but I really like it! The room looks completely new with the paint and photos! I'm glad we could help you get the room started with the painting. :)

I can't believe how mathmatically spaced they all are!!! It looks amazing!!!

So when are you coming over to help me with my next home project?

Charlene said...

I love the way you layout the frames. great idea for pictures!

Amy said...

Love it- what wall is it on?

Tamee said...

Love it! Okay you have motivated me to put something up on my walls. It looks like something that the Devine Design lady would do. Troy's going to want to leave all the time, if you keep doing project while he's gone.

Holy Cow! It's gorgegous! You are a budding photographer, after reading Troy's post about you. :) You gotta show me how you do it!
