How To Fill A Blank Wall

I had one blank hallway wall that was buggin' me!
It was too plain Jane and I needed some spice.
Then I found this cool garage sale frame...plus these oak frames that my mom-in-law gave me.
I got some white spray paint.

Dave and I went to town with it...

Got Simon involved in the sanding..
(no...his Bob the Builder sander didn't work, but he thought it did).
We actually sanded all of the frames after they dried
with a small electric sander.
Then hung them up in a simple formation.
They are purposely off center from one another.
**That's a hint to you
if you are worried that it won't measure exactly perfectly...
just arrange things
a little off-centered and you never have to worry about that.
It's a fun way to spice up that blank wall that you've been staring at...

white on white actually looks kinda cool...
paint it black, red, or any color in between...
anything works!

Go to it!

That was a great idea for a big wall. I will have to pull my stash of frames out do something similar. Thanks for sharing.
