Inspired by an image I found on Pinterest one day, I decided to create my own photo wall in my living room rather than paying a small fortune for a company to do one for me. I chose a selection of photographs and happened to have a large piece of plywood already! Most wood yards and many builders merchants throw out scrap pieces of ply or mdf wood, so you can pick one up there or have one measured and cut out.
Using a large paintbrush and some leftover grey emulsion, I painted the piece of wood and set aside to dry. I then arranged my photo’s, working out spacing and what order I wanted them in and one by one, using some UHU superglue, stuck them down. I did mine by eye but If you’re not so confident as getting them straight then you could use a ruler and pencil and mark out your lines before sticking the pics down.
The next job was to then find an extra pair of hands which came in the form of my husband! Using a spirit level, I made sure that the position of the collage was straight against the wall and not slanted. Then my husband kindly drilled (I’m not great with power tools!) a screw into all 4 corners of the wood to secure to the wall.
I was very pleased with the outcome and have many positive comments from it when I have people over.
