Creating Wanderlust in a Stairwell: Photo Collage

Do you have a big blank wall in your home? We do. It stares at me. More like yells at me. “Cover me up already!” Our naked wall is in our stairwell, a wall I pass multiple times every single day. I know something needs to go there but I do not like buying knick-knacks made in China (no offense, China!) and we do not have the budget for a large piece of quality art. Then, an obvious solution came to me when on Pinterest – a photo gallery. But not just any ol’ photo gallery – a travel photo gallery. There are so many different layouts you can choose, but I chose colorful frames in a nice and neat square. What do you think?

Travel Photo Gallery DIY

Materials Needed:

  • hammer
  • nails
  • tape measure
  • a laser level would be handy, but is not necessary 🙂

Price tag:

  • 9 frames @ 12.99 each = $116.91
  • 9 8×10 photos @ 3.99 each = $35.91
  • Grand Total = $152.82

We no longer walk past an empty wall each time we traverse the stairs. Instead, we are greeted with memories from around the world. The photos evoke feelings of excitement, gratitude and utter happiness. Who would’ve thought photos on a wall could have such a positive impact on our home!
