Stairway Wall


So, finally, after a few months (from start to finish), I completed this project!  I started collecting picture frames awhile back knowing that this is what I eventually wanted to do.  I got some at garage sales, some were given to me, and some I already had.  Once I thought I had enough, I got to work...

I laid them out on the floor to get a feel for how I wanted them to look.  Then I had to take out some glass.  Some of them had glass and some didn't.  I just broke it out.  I know, I know...  It wasn't the safest of projects, but luckily my husband wasn't home, or I would've had to do it another way.


So, once the glass was out, I wiped them all down, took out some hardware (that I put back in later, cuz I like the added character it gave), and began spray painting.
After about 5 coats of paint (no, I didn't prime - my mistake!!), I brought them back in and began to hang.  Some, I put up with nails and picture hangers.  Some of the lighter ones, I used the Command Hook brand velcro picture hangers.  I love that stuff!!  It makes them hang straight (forever!!) and is super easy!

Before...
After...

I also added our last name in black vinyl.
