After about two weeks of staring at my wall covered in paper outlines of frames and pieces of art I wanted to hang, I bit the bullet and nailed things in the wall. I wanted to plan it out and be sure I liked it before I made things permanent. Well, not that permanent since I could just cover nail holes and re-hang, but who wants to do all that?
My actual gallery wall didn’t turn out exactly like my plan above. Once I got some of the outside pieces hung, I kept adjusting as I went. My one rule was to try and line up the outside edges of frames to make a rectangle. Here it is after I hung a few pieces.
Once I got a few things up, I would step back and take a look and see what I liked and what I didn’t like. This seemed to help make it balanced by the time I was finished.
I have a few pumpkins and fall decorations thrown in there too. How cute are those mini pumpkins? I pulled from a few different sources when I researched gallery walls, and you can read about that here. I did rearrange my shelf too so it would flow more easily with the gallery wall.
You can see how my shelf looked like before here, and some secrets on how to style your shelf! And the “Love never fails.” sign was a DIY! Just paint and cover in glitter.
