This is a fun gallery wall that I designed in our home. It was one of the first projects I tackled when we moved in 2 years ago. And can you believe it is still hanging – as is – in our home!? If you know me, you know that I love changing our home up. So the fact that this beauty is still hanging says a LOT. 🙂
We have a large wall on our 2nd floor that goes to our master bedroom that is visible from the living room below. Gallery walls are perfect for this kind of space. All you need – a bare wall!
Examples of where to hang this gallery wall: hallways, entryways, bedroom walls, behind your couch in living room.
Today I am sharing the step by step tutorial on how to achieve this gallery wall along with sharing ALL the sources I used!
What You Will Need
Frames (I used the size 11 x 14)
I Love Us words (40 x 12 – unpainted)
Galvanized Wall Pockets (mine are from Magnolia Home- but found several more affordable options off Etsy (here) (here) (here)
Nails – Command Strips – Or I found these on Amazon and plan to give them a try!
Step 1: Choose Your Prints
I decided to go with all family photos from a single session. If you are local to Minnesota check out Paisley Ann Photography. She does our family photos – and she is literally magic at what she does.
Anyways – I stuck with family photos from 1 session as I was going for a more cohesive look. You can totally go for a more eclectic look and can check out an example of that HERE or HERE.
Step 2: Lay our frames on the floor
This will give you a true vision of what your frames will look like on the wall as well as give you an idea of how far apart you would like them spaced. I suggest 2-4 inches apart.
Step 3: Hang your frames!
There are various ways you can hang your frames. Some of my favorite ideas include:
