Photograph Wall Collage

When I created the gallery frame wall in our living room {shown below} it was exactly what I had in mind to showcase our wedding/engagement photos.

We adore our “love wall” BUT I still have so many photos!!

I was browsing Pinterest & came across this really cute idea of doing a collage wall full of pictures – I know that may sound really tacky but if done right, it looks amazing!

My favorite is the one below. I really like the look of having the entire wall covered from top to bottom. It’s almost like personalized wallpaper.

Heart shaped collage – does it get any cuter!?

Now the question is where do I create this photo collage in our house?!

 Artistic photos, vintage, black & white photos etc can create whatever look you are going for.

Using a large frame like the one below is gorgeous to!

So far here are my wall options:

I’m leaning toward this skinny wall that is the threshold between the dining room and living room. I would make the collage go above the doorway & down the left side, filling the entire wall.

What do you think? It could look really bad, but I think it’s worth a shot!

Or we could do it on this wall near my closet. This wall is a lot wider and will fit more photos.

Or option #3 –¬† this door that covers the furnace, in our hallway.

Not the cutest door, but a photo collage could definitely bring some pretty to this dingy closet.

Plus I would replace the knob with a jeweled one – I don’t know, could be cute. What’s your favorite spot for the photo collage? Leave me a comment with your vote. I can’t decide!

We hope you are all having a fantastic week so far!

**UPDATE**

I decided on the dingy door. See more photos here

    I vote dingy door or above the door and along the side of the one into the living room… but my first choice is door. Especially if you change the doorknob. I think that could be super duper cute!

    I vote the dingy door. It would be an instant oh-la-laer! :) Love the idea, brilliant! <3

  3. Really!? Thx ladies!!! Ya, changing the knob is a must!

    I like the idea of the heart shaped thing but I feel like in real life it will never look that cool haha. PS you’re so cute, I’m happy to see that painting is in your room:)

    Definitely option three!! Perfect
    Spot and I think with option one the pics would be too high above the door to really be appreciated. Love your ideas!

    I’ve been trying to do this but how would i get my loose pictures to stay on the wall.I’ve tried the blue sticky-tac as well right now i have the double sided tape.It’s a little better but it peels once in a while.Ps.I’m in an apartment so I don’t want to ruin the walls too much just incase I move.
