My house has many walls but only one of them is my favorite. I love this wall--I smile every time I see it. Sometimes my husband sees me sitting on the family room couch and says "you're looking at the wall again, aren't you." He's a smart man--he knows I love that wall!
I love the collage of my children, I love the nice uniform grouping, and I love that this was an ultra-low budget project. I did this project back in very early December and I love it just as much now as I did in December. Prior to December I had the frames up in a collage, but the arrangement was different (more random) and I didn't have the darker brown paint behind the frames.
The week before Princess's 4th birthday party I decided that I *had* to redo the wall. My husband is a patient man and humored me. He used the laser level and painters tape and taped off the wall according to the vision I had in my head. Then I grabbed the sample can of paint that I had for our master bedroom and used that to paint the darker brown. After lots of touch-up, we hung the frames back up (and I finally updated the pictures!) and voila! My favorite wall was born!
