Ready for your DIY photo wall?
You will need…
First, clean the wooden board you’ll be using as the basis for your photo wall, to remove any dirt, dust or similar. It must be load-bearing – i.e. completely dry, clean, even, free from dust, oil, and grease.
Lay out the Tile Art wall tiles you need for the base plate face down. Then apply a commercially available dispersion adhesive evenly and, if possible, so that it covers the entire rear side of the wall tiles.
Now stick the wall tiles onto the wooden base plate. While doing so, ensure the wall tile is pushed firmly into the groove of the previously attached wall tile from top to bottom. It’s also important to stagger the tiles in a wooden plank effect so that the design of the “wooden planks” can be shown to best effect, making your photo wall look wonderfully vibrant.
To finish, decide on the length of the “planks” in your photo wall and cut several correspondingly long pieces of string to size.
Insert a fine nail at the left and right end of each plank row and attach the pieces of string to it, row by row.
And now you can bring your chic DIY photo wall to life by attaching images, postcards or other souvenirs to the string.
You can attach your photo wall to the wall with “classic” dowels and screws. The photo wall looks particularly stylish and modern when you set it up on a sideboard, chest of drawers, dining table or worktop in the kitchen, “just” leaning at an angle to the wall.
