A gallery wall has a way of making a space look collected while giving you a chance to show off your favorite pieces of art. So, you just hang up a bunch of pictures, right? How hard can that be? You’d be surprised. Going into a gallery wall set-up without a plan can result in a lot of holes in your surface and even more weird looks from your mother-in-law on her next visit.. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a plan to get your gallery wall looking magazine worthy with just a little time and effort.
Step One: Assemble all of the things that you want to hang. You can pick a theme, like black and white photos or maybe all of the art you just bought on your trip to Italy. Or you can always just run with your favorite pieces for a fun, mixed look.
Step Two: Lay each object you’re going to hang out on a piece of kraft paper and trace around their frames. Label every shape and cut them out.
Step Three: Grab some painter’s tape and have fun — arrange and rearrange the paper silhouettes on your wall until you get a grouping that’s just right.
Step Four: Hammer time! Now that you’ve got the perfect arrangement, start hanging your pieces and watch your wall take on new life. Whew! No extra holes AND a fabulous new place to showcase your favorite paintings and pictures.
The best part of a gallery wall? They look great in every space. Bedrooms, living rooms, and even hallways. We put together a grouping with a French feel, perfect for an entry. Our collection includes an antique-inspired map, a fun Sugarboo sign, and even His and Hers hooks to hang a coat or bag.
