In our apartment we have a huge, boring, what I like to call “rental beige” (you know the color) wall. Since we’re unable to paint, I decided a photo wall would be a great way to break up the space and add some much needed color.
A few weeks back I posted about the set of Penguin Postcards I ordered from the UK because I was too impatient to wait until they became available in the U.S. Well, they finally came and now I have the perfect pieces for my gallery wall!
My first step was picking out my favorite post cards from the set. There were so many great ones it was tough!
Here’s what I initially picked out and narrowed down from:
Next I picked up some 4×6 Ribba frames from Ikea and framed the 18 post cards I had chosen. At $2.99/frame you can’t beat Ikea’s prices!
Finally, after trying several different layouts I decided on one that I liked. I decided to include a Sebastian Fernando Boher silkscreen I bought from the Natural Curiosities sale on One Kings Lane a few weeks ago.
We’ve decided to leave the hardest part, hanging the frames, until this weekend. I’ll be sure to let you see the final result after we get everything measured out and hung correctly.
If you have any tips pleave me a comment, I’d appreciate all the help I can get!
