Hi Capturing Joy Readers! I’m Taryn from Design, Dining and Diapers, a place where I blog about DIY Home Decor, Seasonal Crafts, Recipes and a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I’m always trying to make something out of nothing and stretch a dollar (while almost always eating something sweet!).

I’m so excited to be part of Kristen’s Decorating With Photos series. Family photos are a great way to fill large spaces and bring meaning into your home at the same time! I’ve been working (for about 6 months) on designing a ‘big girl’ room for my almost 3 year old daughter and today I’m going to share a glimpse of a new photo project I just finished for her room.

So here is a something I’ve recently learned about myself and maybe you can relate. I pay money to have family photos taken, then I spend hours and hours narrowing down hundreds of photos into just a handful that I want to purchase, which seems like the biggest task in the world. THEN, after I get these beautiful photos they stay on our computer or get tucked away in a drawer. What is wrong with that picture? (no pun intended)

So I decided to take some of my favorite pictures of my daughter and finally display them in her room. I wanted something different and something that went with the vintage modern theme in her room. So, I came up with the photo timeline using chalkboard paint and clipboards!

Each number represents her age, starting at birth (oo) and goes through age 4 (04). Then it will be time to start a new row! I love looking at these pictures and reflecting on just how much has changed in such a short amount of time.

This project was SO easy and inexpensive and made a really big impact in her room.

You can VIEW THE TUTORIAL on my blog today!

Thanks so much to Kristen for having me over today. I love seeing everyone’s projects in this series.

For more projects follow along on DDD, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest!

Taryn, I simply LOVE this, thank you for sharing!
