DIY Photo Wall Décor Idea

DIY Design Idea: DIY Photo Wall Décor Idea

Here is a DIY design idea perfect for your living room or bedroom décor. One of my greatest friends put this one together. She purchased two picture ledges and turned them vertically. She cleverly attached curtain wires and clips to hang interesting black and white photos. Everything you need to complete this do it yourself project can be purchased at IKEA.  It is the perfect conversation starter and adds chic elegance to your living room decor.

Note: Since this post was published, IKEA no longer sells this photo starter kit. Now it’s time to figure out a DIY for it!

Her original idea started by using photos of places she hoped and dreamed to travel to.  As she reached that destination, she would then print that photo in color, marking her achievement. It turned out beautifully.

  1. Hi D,

    I think this is such a fabulous idea and I would LOVE to incorporate this idea on my office walls. I have the wall ledges, but the wire and the metal rods that the wire comes out of I cannot find where to purchase these or what they’re called. If you know the name of the rods than I can google them. What a brilliant idea.

    Best Regards,

    1. Hi Brooke!

      All the pieces were purchased at IKEA about a year ago. I tried to find the link for you, but now I am unsure if they still sell them. The wire and rods were in the curtain and fabric section of IKEA ( Hopefully you have an IKEA near you? Next time I am there, I will check as well!

      Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Please pass it on!


    1. Hi Caroline! The metal rods and wire was a set you could purchase at IKEA. BUT, I wrote this post back in 2011, so I’m not sure if you can still purchase it there!
