Playroom collage

When I bought the fabric online I also wanted to buy prints to hang on the wall.  Instead of paying $8-$10 per print I decided to buy a calendar with 12 prints for $14!

The Pottery Barn Kids catalog had this great idea to hang a collage...I really love how it turned out!  The frames are the Ribba frames from IKEA for $10. 

It was pretty simple to do.  First I laid out the photos on the ground to see how far apart I wanted each frame.  Then I measured the total size of the collage and how much space it would take on the wall .  Once I found the center point on the wall I hung the middle picture on the top line as my reference point.  Then I hung the two middle frames followed by the bottom middle frame.  It was easy to build out from there.  I had each frame overlap by 3 1/2 inches. 

These are a few of my favorite Dick and Jane prints...

The nice thing about frame collages is they take up space on a large wall!  My playroom feels much more decorated now!  Photos of the full room coming tomorrow!
