For those of you who know me... you know I have an irrational fear of putting holes in the walls.

This fear makes it difficult for me to decorate my house. Here we are at 3 years and I still have mostly bare walls.


 This is a hallway that you see coming in through my front door on the way to my kitchen. When we moved in our original thought was to buy a gigantic picture that would look good in that alcove. I spent 2 years looking. I could not find one that I liked enough to spend outrageous amounts of money on. So then this thought came to me when my friend brought me over the vinyl FAMILY for another project, (we decided that our family name  would work better,) and another friend said she wanted to take our pictures.

I achieved this look by finding 2 11X14 size frames at my local dollar store, using 3 8X10 frames I already had, and picking up a 12X16 frame at Hobby Lobby when frames were 50% off.

I laid out the frames and decided the placement that I liked and then started hanging them.  I triple checked to make sure everything was centered in the alcove as well as lined up symmetrical with  the stuff around it, (and still have 2 extra holes in the wall.)

For the 3 frames that are layered on top of the other frames I made sure to use and EXTRA long nail, like a 1.5" or 2".  To make sure that I could still have them sturdy enough to hold the frame.

My crafty genius of a bestie provided the FAMILY vinyl, and I cut out the Andrew and Ashley using my Cricut.

I absolutely LOVE how this arrangement turned out and love to walk past it every day!
Hopefully soon I can finish all the rest of my BIG PLANS!! 

Thanks to Alisha Hunsaker Photography for the pictures!!
Thanks to Chelsea, my crafty buddy for the vinyl!!

What big plans do you have?

I linked up at The All Stars Block Party.


  1. I really love how this turned out. Great job. If you're afraid of nail holes, then you should try the Command Strip Picture hangers. That way you don't have to put nails in your halls. That's what my mom does. Thanks for sharing at the All Star Block Party.


  2. I SOOOO LOVE THIS... I've got a couple walls I need to work on and this is a great idea... I need to get my cricut back from my daughter so I can use it..HAHAHAHA Thanks so very much for sharing this at the ALL STARS BLOCK PARTY!!!
