It’s no secret that I LOVE photos… I actually need to make a conscious effort to decorate with anything other than pictures of my family. Jess and I thought we’d share our gallery walls today and then some amazing ones we’ve found along the way.
These are OLD pictures from my very first gallery wall in our last house. I ran to Walmart, bought oodles of frames and just started nailing and measuring. This is not how I would recommend putting up a gallery wall. I was crazy lucky that this worked out and I didn’t make one wrong nail hole. I’m still not quite sure how that happened!
I added a few larger frames and still went with a fairly linear layout. What do you think of the one yellow frame? It’s just a fun little play off of the little bird on the table and on the fabric on the chair. (Please ignore the crooked red frame… life with 4 kids!)
Please notice the sideways pictures, the mats that should be removed, and the crooked frames. I’m keeping it real and showing you what it really looks like most days. One day in the next few months very soon I’ll get new pictures printed. For now, the kids just think it’s funny.
My gallery wall is in process, but here’s what I have so far! Things to do: 1. Paint frames so they’re all the same color, 2. Change out mat and picture in the large frame, 3. Put something in empty frame at top.
I’m planning to add another gallery over our piano, so stay tuned for some DIY tips and a step-by-step post coming soon!
