deck that hall

Do you have one of those awkwardly blank walls at your house? Well, at our house that wall is in the hallway between the living room and our bedroom. For the past five years its just sat there...all blank and intimidating...just daring us to just try and decorate the space.

Well, chalk it up to third trimester hormones or icy-road-induced-cabin-fever, but I managed to con Josh into attacking the bare wall with me.

Even though we've been in our house for five years, it still feels new....which I guess is why its hard for us to just nonchalantly place nailholes in our walls. So we got out the level, painters tape, proper hangers; if we were gonna do this we were gonna do it right!

We plotted out a nice rectangle on the wall and placed some of our favorite "art" inside. The rectangle helps keep the art wall contained, so that it doesn't look like its just floating down the wall (unless you're into that sort of look?) We've got professional and non-professional artwork, but hey--it doesn't matter as long as you love it, right?

step one: make sure the tape is level

step two: make sure all art is hung properly

step three: rip off the tape (this is the most fun part!)

step four: enjoy!!
