It was a year ago mid-August that MJ and I reorganized our house to better suit our needs. We bought this house, our very first one, right before the housing bubble burst, and now are financially bound to it even though we long for something to fit our two-children-later life. In the re-org, the bedrooms were relocated to the basement, all the trim in the house was repainted along with so.many.walls, I have a work room and the play room is repainted and almost finished One thing I haven’t done, however, it rehang photos.
In the beginning, I enjoyed the open wall space. It was peaceful and uncluttered. And since we did all the painting ourselves, I was a little hesitant to put holes anywhere. Plus, I wasn’t interested in hanging lots of little frames again. I needed time to consider my options. After a while, though, we just got used to the bare walls. Life went on and the walls stayed empty.
When we finally got paint on the walls in the play room, I immediately got the transfer image canvases from storage and hung them at the end of the hall. I’d been waiting to do it for a year and I LOVE it. Seeing my babes on the wall again makes me so happy. It got me thinking about all the other walls and the stuff in the boxes and bags in storage. I am still undecided about most of the items we removed but I wanted to see more of my children. And that’s where Pinhole Press came in.
After searching their site, I fell in love with the wall decals they offered. Pinhole Press offers photo wall decals which are gorgeous photo prints with a tacky backside that can be repositioned with no damage to the walls. At all. No nails, no hammer and no mistakes holes to fix later. They come in three sizes: large, medium and
oh-so-cute small. The small size is perfect for Instagrams.
It’s a strong and sturdy print and it peels easily off the backing.
Then, it simply sticks to the wall where placed.
I used a pencil and a level to help with alignment. If it wasn’t quite straight, I easily peeled it off and reset it. I was anxious to hang the group but three looked good.
In addition to the wall decals, we selected two acrylic name frames. Clear acrylic frames with a quality photo print inside, personalized with a name of your choice. Again, I adore them. Plus, they mixed in perfectly with the transfer image canvases at the end of the hall.
I also like that the acrylic frames give the flat photo depth and shape without a blocky frame. Get me talking about texture and dimension and I could go on for hours. Haha! The frames are clear, crisp and beautiful. When I do a project, everyone has to help so I am able to tell you that even children aged 2 and 5 can hang them. :)
Despite these photographs, the placement of the decals is not permanent. We still have those bags and boxes to deal with and I want to spread them throughout the house, just not sure right where yet. And that’s the best part. I hung them up and they look great and I love seeing my kiddos’ faces and whenever I get the rest of our junk figured out, I can easily move them to wherever. It’s my goal to not take another year to figure it out. :)
