Displaying a lot of photos in one area isn’t always easy. Especially if you have to mess with frames. And hanging those frames. And then making sure those frames are level and lined up. Clearly I’m not too good at hanging art on the wall. (I’m not.)
That’s why I love this IKEA hack. You just hang this curtain wire (it takes three screws on each side) and clip up photos instead of drapes. And if you’re none-too-handy with the drill, I’m sure your significant other, sibling, parent, friend etc. will enjoy drilling a few screws into the wall more than hanging a bunch of framed photos.
Don’t get me wrong, I love photo collages and gallery walls, but they take a lot of time and effort. I wanted something quick and easy to add a bit of pizzazz above my dining room table and this IKEA hack did just that.
I really like square photos right now. Blame it on Instagram. I printed all of these photos from an app called PostalPix.
The photo display probably should have been moved a bit lower, but I’m living with it.
(Psst. Want to get the look of this IKEA hack for even cheaper? In my old apartment I made a similar photo display using just nails and picture hanging wire. Check out the DIY hanging collage.)
