Back in May I shared the photo wall in our apartment. It was so exciting to have it up on the wall that I ignored the fact that there were a few gaps in between some of the frames.
Jonathan was totally fine with the blank space, but I could not handle it. Something had to be done!
I was thinking of adding an old key or small little something that I could never quite figure out what it was. So, the wall stayed like that for two months.
Then, one day I was scrolling through pintrest and found my inspiration!!!
The description with this picture was "Fabric covered cork board".
It was like a light bulb turned on and knew exactly how to fill the extra space! Now, I didn't have any cork board lying around my apartment, but I did have an excellent substitute - styrofoam! I had a feeling that it would come in handy after assembling our shelves so I kept it. It helped out so much.
I decided to cut out a circle for the smaller hole, and doing it free hand did not work. On my second attempt, I used a roll of tape as my guide. It work perfectly! For the other hole, I decided to use the computer to make the right sized ellipse since free hand doesn't work for me.
|This is the backside of the ellipse.|
After using spray adhesive, you couldn't tell that it was really just styrofoam covered with fabric.
I took them home and got them up on the wall. They are the perfect fit for our photo wall. Jonathan admitted that the wall does look better with them up.
I can now sleep again knowing that the wall is complete!
