PDA: Pretty Displays of Affection

Since our wedding pictures turned out so beautifully, I wanted a really fun way to display them. See what has now been deemed as "the wedding wall".

This project was fairly budget friendly as most of the frames came from the dollar store. I picked up a can of black spray paint from Wal-Mart to give them all the same finish. In addition to pictures, I opted to display some of our wedding cards and our marriage covenant (it's our vows written out and we signed it during our ceremony). I even painted the light switch plate black so there wasn't a void space in the frame pattern

Adorable card from our good friend, Ashley.

One of my favorite cards, from my sister and Maid of Honor.
She picked this up in England while she was interning at Oxford.

The black and white pattern the frames make match the curtains in the living room and our new black bar wall. Plus, it filled the void of that blank wall. It took a while to complete this project, with school and work being so busy, but now that it's done I love it!


  1. That is such a great idea to frame some cards. I always scrapbook the cards I get but love that you framed the one from your sis :)

  2. I love it. It's really beautiful. I'm actually working on my picture wall as we speak!
