A Tip On Gallery Walls

If you’re still unsure about building your own art gallery wall, here are plenty more examples to help inspire you. Lots of you have been asking how I put the gallery wall together in my son’s room. Here is a helpful tip. Trace each frame onto kraft paper, label them and cut them out. Tape them on the wall with painter’s tape and rearrange them to your liking. Once you’re happy with the layout, then hammer in those nails and hang your art!

    Thanks for the tip…I’m about to start putting together a gallery wall in my new apartment and am hesitant to start pounding nails because I have somewhat of a history with multiple tries…on each frame…with the swiss cheese walls in my wake to prove it.

    Also, I’ve never thought of doing a gallery wall in a bathroom! My bathroom’s REALLY tiny though. Maybe someday. Glad to see that it’s not completely taboo. 🙂

    Hi Erica, Love your blog! I see that you site all the images’ locations at the end of the post, but I am having trouble finding the source of the 10th photo, which I absolutely love. I would love to visit that source for more inspiration. If you wouldn’t mind helping me, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!!

    The hardest thing, for me, is deciding what images work together. Like, how do you group photos with art, or can color and black and white photos go together? Do you have any tips on the content selection? Or on how to mix frames, if you don’t want to use the same frame for everything? Thanks!

    This looks way easier than hanging just 1 or 2 things. I’m a Libra — decisions are hard for me! 🙂
