changing up my walls {origrami}

Origrami sent me some Instagram prints to review…I couldn’t wait to get them.

I knew exactly where I wanted to hang the prints. I had recently found these shallow wire baskets at The Barn and thought they would be fun to hang on the wall with some pictures.

The Origrami prints are awesome. They come in the cutest box too. I chose the retro prints…36 polaroid-style prints on 4″x5″ matte cards. They are great quality!

And even the back of the print is cute! Such great colors and it records the date, caption and even how many likes you had. So fun! There are other options for the back too.

So I finally hung up the wire baskets and I love them. I maybe had my husband make three or four holes in the wall before they were just right. He loves when I am indecisive like that. I promised him I would patch the holes myself. 🙂

The boys love looking at these Instagram prints. I need to be better about actually printing these pictures because they record such precious everyday moments that I often forget. Every time Griffin walks by this wall he points at the picture of he and Levi in the jeep and says, “Jeep!” and smiles.

I think this is my favorite picture of us. I might need to blow it up someday.

Such an easy little project and now I can change out the photos anytime I want. I’m still not sure if I need to hang something above the baskets so if you have great ideas let me know.

The people at Origrami are letting me give a box away to one of you too! This is an Instagram giveaway, so to enter you need to leave a comment on the Origrami giveaway post on my Instagram feed.

I love the change of seasons. And it is always fun to change up the things on my walls a little too. Thanks so much for the fun prints Origrami!

  • Emily - Love the ideas! Your house is such a great balance of style and cozy. Wish you could come to my house and decorate 🙂ReplyCancel

  • nyree - I love this idea as I too have had prints done via origrami but no idea how to display them!!! I am guessing you are in the USA and not Australia as I have not heard of the shop your purchased the wire baskets from. Do you know if they have a website address?
    I look forward to hearing from you.


  • Mary Ann - What a darling idea….the only thing I could think of is to thread some pretty ribbon in and out of the baskets to give them a “pop” of color. I love love love the pictures, especially like babykates mom said….he has that look that says “I’m going to give my mom, dad and brother a run for their money!!” LOL Your boys are both so cute. What a joy they must be to have them in your home and forever in your heart!!ReplyCancel

  • Deanna - What a great, great idea. I love it! And the Origrami site = awesome. The first thing that came to mind with the space above the baskets was lettering – a word or words that hold meaning for you and your family. Thanks for sharing with us.ReplyCancel

  • Kim - Love that idea! Your house is so cute…but maybe could you post pics of Griffin’s room..would love to see the finished look with the red lockers ;:-)ReplyCancel

  • Michelle - Love love LOVE this gorgeous idea! Love being able to showcase my many captured moments AND being able to easily update them.
