How’s it Hanging?

As usual, when back in Minnesota, Ben and/or I try to help my sister with something on her house.  Over our Christmas vacation, Ben refinished her stairs and built an awesome bookshelf.

Of course Ben’s skill set grossly out does mine, so I decided to do what I do best.  Hang a few pictures.  Ash gathered up her frames and art to take this wall from blank to beautiful.

Ten framed pictures later, we’ve got a super simple gallery wall.  To simplify the hanging process, I held up the pictures, asked for opinions, then marked the wall to hang using this method.

For the arrangement layout, I tried to follow the line of the stairs.

As they accumulate artwork, this wall can be added to and rearranged to fit large and small art.  But it makes their home feel more lived in and cozy.

What have you been up to lately?  Hanging pictures?  Going on a vacation?  Helping your family with a house project?  Getting help for a project?

  1. That looks great! I actually just helped my niece make an upholstered headboard for her new bedroom last week, so she is coming over this week to help me work on my headboard, and paint some side tables for our bedroom.

  2. This looks so beautiful! I remember when you posted about the stairs and book shelves and loved it then too. I would love to add some sort of gallery in our staircase like this. We have a U shaped staircase and I just finished stenciling the wall at the back. Now I just need to amass frames and art and get some pictures printed out. That will probably be on the old to do list for another year or so. I’m so lazy……
