This weekend I made my second gallery wall. I had random prints and canvases lying around that I never got to putting up. And since I was doing a mass clean up and recently learned that my lease is up at the end of this year rather than in February like I thought, I figured why not. Plus, they are just fun to make. I love laying everything out ahead of time and trial and error-ing it until it works!
Left to Right/Top to Bottom: A picture of Stephanie and I when she ran "HOME" on bid day. We are both Phi Mu's now #LIOB | "Think Pink" because my favorite color is pink (obviously) | An abstract picture of a girl that Stephanie sketched for me. Heart canvas that my mom made for me for Valentines day. "A" splatter painted monogram made by yours truly | "LOVE" from TwoThirdsHazel | Quote canvas made for me by my big sis in Phi Mu | Canvas by AllThingsPrettyBlog
The one I made this weekend was for my room (above). I did some rearranging and had a spare wall that was too bare. The one below is in the living room!
|My pawpaw made a bunch of these cubes before he died so they will always have sentimental value to me|
My top tips:
- Make sure to incorporate things that have special meaning to you. Think of it as one big conversation starter!
- Key concept to constructing a gallery wall is to have things of different sizes, colors, and even shapes.
- Lay everything out on the floor before you go nailing things into the wall.
- Have fun with it!
Happy decorating--because I said so!
