I thought I'd share with
y'all everyone how we decided to decorate our apartment!
I have seen it done where a bunch of pictures/art/whatever you want is just sort of made into a collage on the wall, and I wanted to create that for us.
At first, I thought we were going to have to buy a bunch of art, but as I unpacked our boxes I realized I probably wouldn't have to buy anything new (going from a 4 bedroom house, to a 1 bedroom loft apartment has some perks)!
So, I set out to figure out how people do this.
Step 1: I pretty much just laid everything out on the floor and arranged it until I liked the way it looked together. I did read that it is good to space your items about one inch away from other itmes, and 1.5-2 inches for bigger items. I didn't follow that exactly, I just spaced them as my eyes wanted to.
Step 2: We went to the store and got butcher paper, and I laid it underneath all the items, and traced. This step takes some patience.
Step 4: Hang the pictures!
Step 5: Step back....
Step 6: Straighten with a leveler your Husband teaches you how to use..I think that's what it's called?
Step 7: Enjoy!
I really do love it! It was a great way for us to hang up all the pictures we had in Omaha, instead of stuffing them in boxes in storage. I am probably going to add a few items as we go along, but for now I think it's a great start. It makes the apartment feel cozy.
