A Living Room Wall Make-Over

This past week, I did a little make-over on one of our living room walls. I'm really liking the way it turned out. 

Here's the before and after pictures.

Jackson is so tall that he can reach pretty much anything on this table. He loves to get the frames and its a constant battle with him. :-( I miss being able to set all kinds of pretty stuff out.

So my solution to the problem was to hang the pictures somehow. I moved our wedding photo over to our photo gallery on another wall in our living room. (I'll show you that re-do when I get it all finished). I decided to buy some 8x10 frames matted down to 5x7. They were only $3 each at Walmart! These pictures are all family pictures of both mine and Jake's immediate family (i.e. parents and siblings). I bought the "Family" and "Home" signs at Hobby Lobby for 50% off and only spent $20 total between the 2 signs. I thought I could put the Home sign back far enough that maybe Jackson couldn't get to it. The other stuff on the table is just for this picture. :-( I had to put it all away after taking the pictures because I know he would get into it.

Here are a few close-ups.

And here's a picture that shows the full wall.
