I shared earlier the first two rows of photos on my office wall. The wall is now complete! I really like it in my office. I know my wife would not want it in the house but that is why it is at the office.

Now, when I get a new “Top 20 Photo” I can swap out photos easily without having to worry about matting and framing etc. Just $1.50 at Costco and I can have the new photo on the wall in an hour.

The 3/16″ rods do a great job and the little magnetic balls almost look like pushpins but don’t leave a hole in the photo or the wall.

I helped my youngest daughter string some twine up on a wall in her room so she could hang photos using miniature clothes pins and decided I wanted to something similar at my office since it will allow me to rotate my photos as I create new favorites and don’t need to worry about matting or framing them. The string and clothes pins seemed a bit too girly so what could I do that would be a bit more rustic or “manly”?

I realized I had the little magnet balls that could act as ‘pins’ and just needed something on the wall that they could attach to. I went to the home improvement store and looked around and decided on some 3/16″ metal rods. I could use some hooks to attach them to the wall.

I bought a packet of hooks at 2 rods to see how it looked and would come back for another packet of hooks and 2 more rods if I liked it. I am very happy, so will be stopping in to the home improvement store this weekend to buy a second set of rods and add 1 above and one below the current pair.
