Wall Picture Frame Collage-finished

I was finally able to finish all of my frames today. You can see the how I started HERE.
I had my photos all printed, and got to work filling the frames.

 Once I was happy with where they would all be placed I had to attach the frames to the painted boards. I decided to use velcro, just in case I ever want to update the photos. Who knows! I just knew that I did not want to permanently attach them. I used industrial strength Velcro. It worked really good, those frames are not going any where!
 Here is the "Before"of my staircase:

 I took the old frames down, and cut old wrapping paper the size of each new frame and taped it to the wall to determine my layout.
 I then attached OOK brand sawtooth hangers to the back of each frame, and the OOK photo hangers for the wall. I must saw these things are awesome! They went right in, and I didn't smash any fingers! I will not hang pictures with anything else, no more screws in the wall. They do not damage walls, and will hold almost anything, just buy the right size hooks!

 I wish these photos did this wall justice, I think I need a wide angle lens though and maybe take the pictures during the day, not that there is much light in the stairway, but it might be better.

Here are some better daytime shots!

 I am so happy with how this wall turned out! I have tons of great photos of Mike, the kids & even a few of myself, which is rare because I am usually the one taking the pictures! Now I have a great place to display them!
