I have been working on this project slowly since November. I found the inspiration for this from Pinterest of course - Good Willionaire.
I had it on my boards for awhile but it wasn't until Marc came home with an awesome mirror that he saved from the dumpster at work that I knew I had to make it.
The frame was was very lightweight so I knew it would be perfect once the mirror was removed. Marc was able to just pull the backing off for me and remove the mirror.
Marc brought the mirror down to the basement but not before Violet had some fun with it. These pictures were taken November 11! She was so little!
Next, and by next I mean this last Wednesday...almost two months since I started this project...I had to hang my pictures.
I took gray and yellow baker's twine and strung it across the frame. I did four rows. Then I used mini clothespins to hang the photos.
I love the way this turned out and I think it looks great in my living room. I also love that I can easily switch out photos and they don't have to be just Instagram pics either.
I made one for my brother and sister in law for Christmas too and I think it was a big hit.
Make sure to come back next Monday for my easy peasy tutorial on how to print out your Instagram photos.
