Gallery walls

Thursday, January 28, 2021

 Gallery walls are a good way to group items you love and display your family photos.

Here you can get matching frames to get started 

Make sure you start out with similar frames and do all your images in the same color. If you want black and white do them all in black in white.

Its pretty easy now with Walgreens website you can just send them to the store in the color and size you want printed and pick them up when they are finished.

First make sure to lay out your frames on the floor in the design you like the best. Make sure your four corner pictures of your gallery line up in a straight line. You can place any metal pieces, shelves or whatever else you want to add to your gallery on the floor as well.

Your finished product will be one big piece of art. 

At this point I take a sheet of paper and make a template of each picture, making sure to mark where the hanging clip is. This way you can hang the paper on the wall and nail right threw the paper.

I then will tape each sheet to the wall, so I can play with the different sizes to make sure its the grouping that works for me.

Just make sure each sheet of paper lines up and is level with the next one, hammer your nail wear the hanging clip would be.

Once you take each sheet down you can now replace it with the actual framed picture. 

The biggest mistake in decorating is hanging your pictures too high. Make sure the middle of your gallery is at eye level. 

I did shelves in our new home and just lean the photos against the wall. This way I can change them up as the seasons change. Or add Santa, Halloween, Easter, or which ever fun signs you like.

These shelves are perfect in the hallway. 
I am able to change them out as I please.
Here you can order white ones in 60 inches
Here you can order black ones in 48 inches

 I hope this helps you make your home more personal and gives you the confidence to try something new.

Don't let fear of trying something hold you back. It's okay to make mistakes along the way, that's how we learn what we don't like.

When I use a product I do try to link it for you and if you decide to purchase the product I am affiliated with some of those companies. Its the only way to offset the time it takes building my how tos for decorating and DIY.

I am in no way asking you to click and purchase any items but it makes it easier for all the info to be on one site. Many different stores carry the products I use. But the links I provide is where I had purchased.

I hope that helps you make your home more personal and gives you the confidence to try something new.
