This space has been a blank canvas since we’ve moved in and I’m excited to finally tackle it this upstairs landing. This hallway is right in between the boy’s rooms so instead of putting some random decor up here, I really wanted to make it special and add family photos in this space. This makeover was so easy thanks to to the low prices and beautiful pieces from Walmart’s home collection!
One thing I lacked in our Maryland cottage was the use of family photos. As a former wedding photographer I used to always stress to my clients how important it was to print physical photos and have them in your house but I was guilty of not making it a priority in my own home. I think it’s easy to fill up our walls with home decor we see at Hobby Lobby or TJmaxx but there is just something extra sweet about seeing beautiful memories on the walls of someones home. When we moved into our new home here in South Carolina I was determined to find ways to do that.
I am proud to say this is my SECOND gallery wall in my home since moving here and I love how inexpensive it was to put this one together!
Did you know you can order 1 hour prints from Walmart.com? I edited 6 of my favorite family photos so they were black and white and then ordered them each in an 8×10. Next I purchased 6 white poster boards and created a matte to go around the photo inside of the picture frame. I’m sure giant 16×20’s would have looked ok but I love the way a matted photo looks and it’s so inexpensive to create that look!
I used 6 gold poster board frames that were a fraction of the cost of buying regular picture frames. It was so simple to put these together! I finished off this space with 2 pretty rugs I made into a runner from Walmart’s Better Homes and Gardens collection as well as this beautiful planter with a pretty monstera plant to give the space some much needed warmth!
What do you think of the makeover? I can’t stop looking at it!! I have everything linked in one spot if you would like to shop for these items, you can do that here on my LTK!
