Hanging a Collage

This is my entryway. Bland, bland, bland. Right? For some time, I’ve envisioned a floor to ceiling collage on one wall. I’ve been saving (and creating!) art until recently, when I finally had enough.

It’s a tight space, so camera angles are a little weird, but I did the best I could! I measured the wall around the piano and taped out the measurements onto my living room floor. Then, I arranged the art within the tape until I had it where I wanted it.

Then, my sweet husband and I transferred it to the wall.

A lot of these pieces of art are special and meaningful to us. I love to look at the wall and take it all in.

I bought this E.E. Cummings quote right before I started writing this blog. It’s a good reminder and I love that I bought it with this blog in mind.

A photo strip of me and my man when we were in college. I bought the frame at Goodwill and mounted the strip on scrapbook paper…

A picture of our first dog, Jersey (miss that girl), and an anniversary card that my sister made me. She owns a print design shop that you should check out.

My husband took the picture on the right (he has a good eye and a talent with the camera) and I painted the stripes and chevron.

There you have it! Our method for hanging a collage. I love it. I love it even more than I thought I would when I was planning it out. It’s one of my favorite spots in the house. It took a while to collect everything, but it was so, so worth it. Some things are totally worth waiting for.
