First, figure out where you want to house your wall art. Any bit of empty wall space will do, but it’s a good idea if the wall is located in an area that gets a lot of traffic – after all, you want to make it easy for yourselves and any guests to actually touch your framed textures. If you don’t have a whole lot of wall space to work with, a single column of framed textures will do just fine – our column extends from floor to ceiling and hangs in a very narrow space in the little hallway leading to our bathroom and bedroom – but those of you with ample space to work with can choose to make a big grid of framed textures, in which case, you’ll need to determine how many columns in addition to how many rows you’ll want. Bear in mind that each frame is approximately 12-¾" square, and that you’ll want to leave about an inch and a half between each frame.
making the frames
48" of 1"x1" wood
4 1½"-long wood screws*
12.5"x12.5" square piece of 1/8"-thick hardboard (cheapest), or plywood (this is what we used, since we already had some available from a previous project)
staple gun with staples
* We actually used drywall screws, since that’s what we had on hand.
