I am Elyse, one of the Six Sisters, and today I am sharing a few ideas I have used in my home to decorate with portraits. I love having pictures of my loved ones all over my house but have a husband who isn’t a big fan of putting holes in the walls. I came up with a few ideas to still display the pictures I love while making very few holes in the walls.
I wanted to find a way to hang some of our wedding pictures that was cute and different than a usual gallery wall. I found unfinished wood frames at Hobby Lobby for $6 each (or less if you use a coupon!), spray painted them black, drilled two holes in the top of each frame, sanded the edges to rough them up a bit and attached them to a curtain rod with ribbon. It was an inexpensive, easy project! We love having these pictures displayed to bring back memories of our special day.
My toddler is getting ready to move into a big boy room. I was having trouble coming up with a way to display pictures in a sports themed room without it looking to “feminine.” I was given this cork board as a hand-me-down. I sanded down the wood edge and spray painted it red. My little boy looks at it every day and loves to point out and name each person in the pictures. He thinks it is so cool to see himself and cousins on his wall and makes him feel important.
Even though there isn’t a baby to fill the nursery yet, we thought we would display our first pictures taken of our little one. A magnet board is a great way to display pictures because it is so easy to change. I can put up new pictures of our baby as it grows without having to hang frames (or put holes in the wall, which makes for one happy husband)!
We love the way that having these portraits up brings such a warm feeling to our home!
Thanks for having us!
Thanks, Elyse! I love that magnet board, and the corkboard is a really fun addition to the big boy room! Over on their site, I’m drooling over their recipes…specifically the Slow cooker Parmesan Honey Pork Roast Recipe and the Chunky Potato Crab Chowder. I’m also lovin’ 101 Fun, Easy, and Cheap Indoor Activities for Kids. You can find them on Pinterest and facebook.
