Hanging Pictures

A couple weeks ago Mom and I went to IKEA. We love IKEA. Being that I knew I would have a guests over the course of a week I decided it was time to get things to make my place a little more...homey... Like maybe some pictures on the walls.

Blank, boring wall.
Being the genius that I am I traced the frames, then hung the traced papers to figure out a layout.
Only problem was the tape and wall paint didn't want to "bond". So I had to use a lot of tape. Kaitlin can attest to this. I was on the phone with her while I cussed at the paper for falling every 3 seconds.But alas, TADA! I got them all up. Only problem was that I wasn't happen with very many of the pictures on my computer. So I only had 2 printed for the 8 frames. Who cares! They are all hung, and some are still waiting for pictures! And there is room to grow and add more frames as they are needed.
I also got a picture to hang in the bathroom. See the blank, boring wall above the toilet?
How about now? Much better!And then I brought a picture over from my parent's house that I still needed to bring over. It's actually a picture that I took and developed when I took photography in college. Go me!

I would have never thought to hang paper to see if I like how something looks on the wall. You are a genius!
