Gallery walls are all the rage right now in decorating, however the task of getting started with a big, blank wall can be a bit intimidating. To ease the process I have compiled my go-to’s for art, framing, and hanging guides.
Here are a few general Do’s and Don’ts of creating a gallery wall and below are a few prints I am eyeing as additions to my own gallery wall.
Step 1- Choosing your art (a few of my favorite places to troll for prints)
Step 2- Framing
West Elm has a great variety of frames with differing mat options that are all under $100.00.
For custom frames I use framed & matted, an easy one stop shop. Choose your mat size and color, frame material, and even upload your image to see what the finished product will look like!
Step 3 – Hanging your gallery wall
Trace and cut out templates of your frames from paper (any kind of paper will do, you are just doing this to create a template on the wall)
Tape paper copies to the wall and arrange a to scale version of your art wall. There are about 1 million guides to hanging a gallery wall on Pinterest. This is a good general layout.
Finally once you are happy with your paper templates, go grab your hammer and get started hanging!
