My Kind of Weekend Project

I recently tackled a very small weekend project that I had been procrastinating doing for several months.  Mostly because DIY is usually not our thing and I was somewhat intimidated...

I purchased these frames months ago (before the current school year pictures had been taken, let alone developed and our orders returned to us!).  I wanted to hang them going up the stairs but didn't want more nail holes in the wall than I needed.  

I made templates and measured and taped and measured again and re-taped.  

After getting the spacing right, I got out my hammer and nails (triple-checking everything as I went), and they went up with no issues!  Hooray! 

Ellen especially loves seeing her picture on the wall.  Let's hope she's not so conceited that it makes her fall down the steps!


  1. Well done, Tricia! They look great! Much better than my technique...also know as "Hit and Miss..."

  2. They look GREAT! Love that you added the ultrasound pics of the little one! :)

  3. Love it, we had our pictures on our stairs growing up and I can't wait until we move into a house with a nice open staircase so I can do the same!

  4. Looks great! Now, you want to come over and hang pictures in my house???

  5. Awesome! Thanks for the inspiration! Hope you don't mind a "DIY copy cat"!
