How to Hang a Photo Frame Collage

20150322-20150322_164445

First lay all your frames together and get a rough layout.

Place all your frames on a white plastic tablecloth (usually $1 or so) you could also use craft paper or anything that is large enough. Measure and get the frames even. Sharpie around the frame edges. Position the table cloth on the wall (I used thumb tacks, but some may prefer tape). Step back check it visually and with your ruler/level. Once it is where you want it begin placing your hanging screws.

This is the second house I have used these frames in. First house I tried to hang one frame then measure off of it to hang the next. Wound up with dozens of holes in the wrong places. This method I had zero errors! Now to update all the photos…..

We recently added garage storage using 1x6’s, 1x2’s and pegboard. It has quickly become my favorite organization upgrade in the entire house. No more digging in totes and drawers for tools. Not the prettiest thing but saves me so much time when working on projects.

We didn’t follow any plans. I saw a similar idea on pinterest and we tried to go by it. The 1x6 boards all have 1x2 underneath for bracing. We also placed 1x2 along all the edges of the pegboard underneath it (if there isn’t a gap between the wall and pegboard you can’t place your pegs in the holes)

A bit of caulk and paint finished it on up.
