Guys! I am so obsessed with my new photo wall. I’ve been toying with the idea of putting one up for months now but it always just seemed like SOOO much work. Choosing the photos, getting them printed, then framed, and – MOST DAUNTING OF ALL – hung.
(Hung straight and without making the wall look like swiss cheese with all the nail holes, that is.)
Well, then I discovered Mixtiles and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally pull the trigger on the photo wall of my dreams! I still took great care to choose my photos, narrowing down a field of many to 12 of my favorites. I wanted them to all have a cohesive color palette (blue, red, green, and light maroon) so that the arrangement would look nice in our living room. This helped weed out some contenders. Also handy was the fact that the Mixtiles website will tell you if a picture is going to be lower quality when printed as soon as you upload it. So that eliminated a few more.
My 12 winners included:
- Chet at the aquarium
- Me on a trail with my trusty Tom Bihn
- Katie at the shuffleboard club
- A snap from a trip to the Everglades
- Andy, Mom, and I at Sunken Gardens
- Chet and his Mom at his doctoral graduation
- Chet and I on a trip to St. Pete
- The weekend we moved to Alabama
- Breaux Bridge
- My Mom in Miami
- Wink enjoying some outdoor time
- and the Berger siblings
All I had to do was upload the photos, select the type of frame I wanted, and the next thing I knew they were on my doorstep. And best of all? They hang WITHOUT nails and are removable, reusable, and leave no marks. Perfect for people (like me) who are indecisive and want to play around before they settle on the ideal placement.
I would highly, highly recommend Mixtiles if you’ve always wanted a photo wall but were too scared to take the plunge! I’m already itching to order more!! They are beautiful quality and the perfect addition to any home.
