You might remember two weeks ago when I started painting some walls in my house.
So all the painting is now done, 1 feature wall in the tv room, 2 feature walls in the lounge and then I tackled the corridor too.
I have loads of framed art, first because I used to paint, and secondly because in Portugal I had a framing business which meant I framed a lot of my art.
Also our double storey apartment in Portugal was bigger and had a lot more walls than our current Perth house...so more art on the walls.
Luckily gallery walls seem to be in fashion from what I see on Pinterest.
I decided to do a African art wall on the newly painted tv room wall.
Hanging the art work took some time though...
I first lay the pictures on the floor in front of the wall and shuffled them until I was happy with the display.
And the result is:
I had to go to a framing shop near me to get some new mats for some of the frames. You might notice the tiger picture on the left had a green mat which didn't go with my colour scheme, so I had it changed to blue. The picture above it also had a green mat which was changed to orange. Now the fit into the scheme!
Still some art to hang in the corridor and then all done!

And here is a photo of part of the corridor near the entrance hall, where the wall was yellow and now it's gray.
