DIY Photo Wall

Getting your photos printed, framed and displayed on a wall in your home falls in the same category as doing your wedding and baby albums: a necessary evil that you’ll eventually enjoy when finished. Eventually. But the thought of trawling through approximately 14,823 photos to find the handful worthy of printing and then working out HOW to display them is enough to make you want to put the task off til 2050.

 

Needed:

  • An assortment of frames. Mine were a combination of Kmart Australia between $4 - $12 each, Country Road Adler frames between $39.95 - $99.95 each and OnStone. OnStone do the most beautiful prints literally on stone. They then frame them using reclaimed wood. There are a range of sizes - I would’ve done my whole wall in these given the chance!
  • Your photos - I printed mine Officeworks which I found to be decent quality. But if you want the highest possible quality, check out somewhere used by photographers. I’ve been told that Atkins Photo Lab is very good 👌🏻
  • Nail hooks and a hammer or removable hooks like the Command 3M ones if you don’t want to nail into your wall.
  • Butcher’s paper
  • A pencil
  • Blue Tack
  • Scissors
  • A Ruler
  • Packing tape, or any wide tape
  • Scissors
  • A spirit level
