The wall transformation. OMG

My other love is home remodel.  Before and after.  I love to see the transformations.  But I'm REALLY BAD at remembering to take the "before" photos on my own stuff.  Not cool.  I promise I dug one out so you could see.  

THIS IS THE AFTER...

IMG_5822 cindyharper homeIMG_5822 cindyharper home I'm a pretty huge fan of Joanna Gaines and Magnolia Home... 

Hence, the ever changing "Cindy Harper Home...".

I usually have a pretty giant list going.  The "summer" list.  The "weekend" list.... The "well, whatever"....list....Main thing on the list was: the gallery wall.  Once again..  it was perfectly FINE as it was.  I KNOW....BUT....I really wanted to move some of my framed pieces down the stairs and the job seemed a bit overwhelming...even for me.  I knew I wanted to paint some of the frames I already had and was thinking I would add some new ones as well.  

Apparently I have enough frames ALL around my house to fill ridiculous amounts of space.  I always end up with extra frames that come in that have been damaged or they quit making that style or the company goes out of business or whatever...so I put it in my storage room and say "some day"...  Some day is NOW.  

Once I start something I don't really like to leave it sitting in limbo too long.  I just go like a mad person until it looks okay enough to walk away.  I can't stop.  So, I dug through my storage room and I painted some of the frames I already had and I just went with it.  Maybe I will replace some of them eventually?  Not even sure on that one.  I ended up liking most of my frames after painting them so I'm not sure I NEED to get anything new but the WANT is still there!  Soooo...

You can always reuse frames you already have!  It CAN be done!  Paint is your friend!!  I used some spray paint and chalk paint on these.  Some of them I left alone.  Some of these I am not sure where they even came from...

 

The wall:  Tahh - Daaaahhh ----

The letters across the wall: "FAMILY" I picked up at Wal-Mart and painted black.  Several of the frames are no longer available but I'm sure you have frames in your house you can't purchase again as well.  It was a fun project and I was SO happy to finally get it finished!!  The stairwell has had a transformation as well since I was hoping to trail the other images down the stairs...I also picked up a few signs at Hobby Lobby to add to the mix.  I have already switched out a few of these pics with some updated images.  That's the great thing about a gallery wall.. you can switch out images and leave the gallery in place!!  

 

This was before... sort of..  I had slightly changed it a few times before..

There you have it!  The gallery wall re-make!  It's a work in progress.  

I have had a super busy summer making awesome images for client's home decor which has been so perfect....and now that the school year is beginning I am filling up my available spots for fall sessions.  I am almost as booked as I need to be for fall but I have a few days left!!

Looking forward to a great school year!!

Call me if you still need a spot :)

Hey There Friend,

Welcome to my little corner of the universe.  I photograph babies, children families and seniors.  I am a Chillicothe, Carrolton, Marshall Missouri area photographer.  Clients drive from  Iowa and Illinois and Kansas for a shoot.  My specialty is creating a modern day memory wall in your busy world.  Let's see if I can help you.  I work with awesome people.  I occasionally post information here.  I write about family life, photography, and anything nutty that crosses my mind.  I would love to be very good at this, but, life happens and I don't write as much as I should.  So, if you find some new and interesting stuff to read here.. That's GREAT!  Come on in and stay a while..grab a cup of coffee and hang out.  And please.. call me with any questions you may have. 660.542.4037
