Piper’s Playground: Frame Wall

Earlier this week, I blogged about one of my clients,  Piper’s Plaground.  And today, I get to give you a quick glimpse at their progress.

In the toddler area of this indoor playground, the owners wanted to create a frame wall with empty, brightly painted frames in different sizes and shapes.

Here are a few inspiration photo’s…

Let’s look at a before picture of Piper’s Playground very early on in the process…..

Kim and Katie, the owners, purchased some great play equipment and couches for this particular area.  After some furniture placement and painting, the room looked like this….

Do you want to create a similar look in your home?

1. start collecting frames of different shapes and sizes

2. remove glass and backs of frames

2. gather spray paint in a variety of colors that coordinate with your room {I selected 5 colors for this room}.

3. start spray painting

{Spray painting can be very tedious and time consuming.  Make sure you spray thin layers so the paint doesn’t run or drip.  Therefore several coats of paint may be necessary.}

Once you’re spray painting is complete, d-rings or other hardware may need to be attached to the backs of the frames. {Remember you just removed the backs of the frames, and that’s often where the hanging hardware is attached.}

When the frames were ready, I laid them on the floor to create a look that worked best with the wall.  Once I was satisfied with the layout, I started hanging them on the wall!

I created a much smaller version of the open frames in another room at Piper’s Playground as well.  The owners had a bird painting, but the wall needed a bit more.  So I bought eight frames and painted them colors that coordinated with the painting.

It’s a more simple look but equally as fun!

Do you think this is a look that would work in your space?!
