Remember when I posted
two weeks ago about this lovely picture?
Well, since then I’ve been trying to recreate the eclectic photo-display on the wall.
I finally got my hands on some brown card stock after trying to make my own (post coming soon), having Amazon sell out of what I wanted, and dealing with the fact that Michael’s is 1.5 hours away.
Here’s what’s on my bedroom wall now:
I didn’t try too too hard to get it to look similar to the original- I just loved the basic idea.

I collected pictures, edited them all to have the same color scheme (slightly more black and white than sepia), arranged some in collages, and printed them out on normal paper. Then I glued them to brown cardstock and decorated some of them with lace and bows.

I was planning on hanging the pictures up with upholstery tacks to just add some more sparkle, but I couldn’t find them anywhere. I even dreamed I searched the neighborhood for small brass nails. 😀 (Stop rolling your eyes, close friends!) Instead I just used staples.

I added a quote I found online that fit the pictures perfectly:
“Our inside jokes-too many to name.
When we’re apart, its never the same.
When we’re together, its nothing but fun.
Replacing my girls just can’t be done.”

I grabbed some random lace from my stash and hung it up, too. I love this way of displaying photos. Its not over-the-top like in most teen girl’s bedrooms, but its different than a simple frame.
