Hallway gallery with mismatched frames

I’ve practically wallpapered our hallway with family photos, both young and very old. I even went up over the door frames and into the corners. Pre-made moulding frames and a simple chair rail provide a boundary and ending point. I’ll give you a little tour.

I had to add some new photos because I realized that Clara just turned two and there are no printed pictures of her in our house! That’s bad. Poor third baby. What makes it worse is that she likes to point to all the photos and identify family members. I was starting to feel a little guilty that she wasn’t up there!

Where to get cheap frames

I bought some inexpensive frames at Ross and printed out photos at Costco.

Nothing is perfect about this space. Feet are chopped off in some photos. The matting doesn’t fit around others. The spacing is all over the place and sometimes frames are crooked. But that’s ok. If I wanted perfection, I’d never get the pictures up!

I love having old family photos in the mix. Some of them are even my grandparents’ grandparents. It gives us a sense of where we came from, who we are, where we are going and the great potential we have to influence future generations.

Photo gallery collage covers entire hallway with family photos of new and old. Chair rail and premade moulding frames offer a boundary.

As I said before I used this chair rail as an ending point for the photos. To read how put them up and added pre-made frames underneath, read this post.


On a separate note, I switched emails services. If you are an email subscriber please let me know if you have any problems today. Emails should be sent every Tuesday around 3 p.m.

If you are not an email subscriber, would you like to be? I will send a new post once a week to your inbox. Here is the quickform:

Here’s what happened. I had a reply from someone on my FeedBurner list and felt red hot shame at the oversized photos and weirdness of the format. Then I realized that I had almost 6,000 WordPress subscribers and most of them were probably spam. So if I deleted you in my tizzy, please resubscribe here and accept my sincerest apologies! (I also deleted my best friend if it makes you feel better.)

I imported you lovely, patient friends from FeedBurner to the new format. I know this service has been outdated for years and I’m terribly sorry for neglecting it! If you are unhappy with this new email service, let me know and I will try to fix it. I truly and greatly appreciate your readership and look forward to connecting with you. Thank you!! xo
