I had some of our pictures displayed on our dining room table.
I have another idea for the table so the photo heart had to go.
We had this blank wall at the end of the hall and I thought it was a perfect place for the photos. I came across The House of Smiths Instagram display wall and loved the idea. So that is what I did.
I tweaked the idea a little. Instead of weaving the string back and forth, I just did individual rows with my hot pink string.
Also, instead of using molding attached with command strips, I had my husband attach 1x2s directly to the wall.
It is a really simple project. After my husband attached the wood rails, it only took me a couple hours to drill all the holes for the screw eye hooks, screw the hooks in and thread the string through.
I attached the pictures with these mini craft clothes pins (Amazon) that I spray painted fluorescent yellow.
You may have noticed that I added this Orb light fixture in the hall as well. It was a very dark spot in our house and needed some lighting. I made the fixture with embroidery hoops and a Hemma Cord from Ikea. Very easy to make.
Because the hall doesn't have a switch for a light, I found the coolest gadget to turn the light off and on.
This is an indoor wireless remote control with three outlets (Amazon). I used 1 in the hall, 1 for our orange lamps in the living room and the extra 1 is for an upcoming project for the dining room. It is really cool and only $20.
Well, that is the hallway. It is super small, but still reflects our personality that the rest of the house has.
If you missed part 1 of the hallway, check it out here.
