As much as I love rolling back my sleeves and putting a little elbow grease into projects in our home, I’ve found I can’t reasonably be held to a time frame in most cases. My genius needs time to breathe, and be indecisive and mull over ideas and Pinterest pins all while taking bitty steps here and there to develop my masterpieces. I mean Rome wasn’t built in a day or a weekend and neither are most of my projects.
A few weeks ago I revealed the very beginning of our hallway makeover in this post. I’ve been diligently working to get it completed and joined a few bloggers in a fun “Spring into Action Bloghop” where we vowed to complete an unfinished area in our home. If you are visiting from Nicole’s blog, She Does a Bunch thanks for stopping by! Let’s just say I didn’t quite “finish” my area but it has come quite a ways from this
A major part of the hold up is I decided to use Dollar Tree frames and let’s just say I can’t seem to find more in the larger sizes I need to properly balance everything out. I’m still searching Dollar Tree stores for 5 x 7 and 8X10 frames. Holler at your girl if you find some in your neck of the woods, I’ll happily send for gold frames.
….and before you suggest looking online, I did and conveniently they aren’t carrying this style.
I’ve managed to get quite a few up and print out a few photos. I have so many photos, and finding the perfect ones to display has been a little harder than I imagined….
see indecisive reference above.
I’m still searching for the perfect runner. The doors still need to be painted, the light fixture replaced and we will be replacing all of the doorknobs and painting the ceiling. These things will come together in the following weeks. Please don’t ask me for a definitive date for this to get completed because I’ve decided to move into my office and start making that place over.
I got this.
Please be sure to swing over and check out Kendra at Three Bean Circus and her Pantry Makeover. Also be sure to check out the other ladies and see the amazing transformations they’ve done. They’ve managed to complete their projects!

Love the wall color Mimi, I’ve never seen such nice frames at the Dollar Store, but if I come across some (and decide not to buy them all for myself ) I’ll let you know ???

Love your gallery wall Mimi. Its really adds something nice to your space! If I come across some in my dollar tree, I will let you know because Lord knows I don’t need to buy another frame! Can’t wait to watch the space evolve!
ArieApril 4, 2018 at 8:17 pm
I am loving your gallery wall! It does something to the hallway. I am going to have to swing over to my local dollar tree!
OlaApril 4, 2018 at 9:00 pm
I love the wall gallery. Aren’t family photos just the best? So many memories. I have to come visit your neck of the woods, because I have NEVER seen such nice gold frame in the Dollar Tree in my area.
N'CkyolaApril 5, 2018 at 11:36 am
You do “got this” Mimi! Love gallery walls! This looks so clean & crisp already.
BTW… we don’t have nice things like this in any Dollar Tree around here either. Lucky you! Maybe if you can’t find bigger frames just like these, you could get some plain frames & spray paint them?
KenyattaApril 5, 2018 at 8:38 pm
I’ve yet to find any of those frames at my Dollar Tree. Good luck on finding the rest. The space still looks great unfinished.
NicoleApril 7, 2018 at 8:23 am
Love where you’re going with your hallway! I love that you went with the Dollar Tree frames. There’s nothing better then getting stuff done on a budget! I will keep my eyes open for frames at my Dollar Tree!
