Hi, I’m Janell from Isabella & Max Rooms and what a delight to be invited to write a guest post for Ally today. I found her blog when it was featured on the Brooklyn Limestone and was immediately intrigued by Ally’s unique style.
Two of my favorite current trends in home decor are adding chalkboard walls to nearly any space and hanging multiple images to create art walls. In a recent project I combined these two treatments, creating an art wall over a chalkboard wall in my husband’s office.
First up, painting the wall behind an old cabinet with chalkboard paint and rubbing chalk over the entire surface. I was told this would ensure whatever was written would be able to be erased…it seems to be working.
The next step was to select the images to be included, finding frames and deciding on the layout.
Afterwards a template was made by tracing each frame as well as noting the location for the hanging hardware. Then the paper was hung on the wall.
The frames were hung one by one…
Followed by the removal of the paper.
A favorite quote was written in one of the empty frames.
The last step was to hang a framed chalkboard on the adjacent wall. To see more details on hanging the art click here and for the chalkboard wall click here.
Thanks again Ally for having me on your blog today. I look forward to seeing the work on your latest beautiful home unfold!
