hi! i'm alex
your new virtual bff! take a look around — find inspo, get lost, and send me a message so we can be friends IRL.
So, I talked earlier this year about wanting to really make my apartment a sanctuary and invest it making it feel like a home. Ian and I always say we want more personal touches, and to bring pieces of our travel and life together through displaying our photographs in a creative way.
Well, luckily for me, Framer’s Pointe came to the rescue!
My biggest obstacles with bringing any kind of gallery wall to life in my home were the difficulty of getting my images printed and framed, and cost and hassle—it was enough to keep me from even attempting the project until I learned about Framers Pointe.
To say they’ve made framing easy, convenient and affordable is an understatement. It took me literally minutes to order my framed photos—I was able to upload the directly from Instagram!
Okay, so on to my project, because I’ve been so excited to share!
I decided to surprise Ian with a gallery wall in the form of a sort of advent calendar. I ordered some of our favorite images and a corkboard, and wrapped them all. I thought we could pin up holiday cards on the corkboard and I went to Michael’s to get a mini holiday tree and some delicate twinkle lights (and the wrapping paper for the frames!) to make it feel super festive.
I installed two simple shelves and arranged all the photos, and I was so excited with the outcome!
We mayyyy have gotten a little too excited and opened all the frames early instead of one a day during the actual holidays (but come on, I was too excited to show Ian!) but I’m also not too mad about it, because that means I get to show you the final look! See below. Oh! That large wrapped one is actually a printed canvas that is framed—they print on canvas too!
Oh! We also printed our favorite shot from the deck of the cruise ship we took to Cuba in the Spring, and hung it over our bed. It was the finishing touch our master bedroom begged for and makes me feel so calm and happy!
Overall, I was so happy with the way the project turned out, and the fact that the frames showed up at my doorstep (AND SHIPPING WAS FREE!) was the cherry on top of this being such an easy and rewarding mini home-makeover.
Framers Pointe makes the perfect holiday gift, or way to revamp your home in time for the holidays! I want to see your projects! Comment below if you order and tell me about it, or head over to my Instagram and shoot me a DM with YOUR Framers Pointe projects!
