Putting Up Some More Frames

Two years ago we visited Italy on our honeymoon during which in Piazza Navona, I fell in love with the work of this one artist. These six paintings are my favorite souvenir from the trip but I totally forgot I had them them so they sat collecting dust in the back of my closet. 

Having breakfast one day, inspiration struck! The wall by the laundry door in the breakfast nook would be the perfect place to exhibit these pretty paintings. 6 paintings 4 to be placed horizontally, 2 vertically, now I had to figure out the best placement.

I decided on using a grid pattern for placing the frames in two neat rows. I cut out tissue paper in the shapes of the frames and used two strips of blue painters tape as a way of separating the frames. I used Command Picture Hanging Strips, instead of making tons of holes in the wall. 

I placed the first frame and then freaked out! The wall looked like this for
more than four months until I mustered up the courage to finish.

Four months later and I had finally put all the frames up!

Finished product
