It's the first weekend of our new home project series, and Apartment Therapy blogger Lauren is here to show you her final result on this weekend's assignment: Filling a blank wall in your home.

From Lauren: Yesterday I left you hanging before revealing the end result of my living room art wall - you know, the place where I wanted to cobble together all of the homeless artwork that I had been hoarding over the past year or so? Well, fear not, the wait is over. Click through for the "after photo" (complete with animated GIF!)...

And here's the fun animated GIF showing how it all came together (created with my trusty iPhone, my daughter's play kitchen, and a C-clamp thanks to the fact that I am currently camera-less):

I think it's really interesting to see how the light changed in the space throughout the day! Now, to go and start gathering more artwork...
