How To Create An Easy Gallery Wall

 

We created a gallery wall! I have been wanting to do this project for a while, and finally pulled the trigger! I had put it off for a while, because it seemed like it would be a lot of work.  And I just imagining my husband taking hours to do it and then each picture frame end up looking crooked. haha! So I just held off to spare us both.

I also, wanted to find the what frames.  I didn’t want a huge gallery wall, because I didn’t feel like it would fit our space.  I partnered with Framebridge to create a super simple gallery wall that was really quick and painless. When I tell you the entire process was so EASY! It had me really wondering why was I making this harder than what it is.

 

I wanted to share the process, because if you are like me doing a gallery wall was foreign.  I have seen it but didn’t know how to pull it off where it was leveled.

I chose the Mini-Grid but there are so many options to choose from.

Here’s is how I did it to help you when you go through the process:

  1. I picked out the gallery wall that I felt would work best with my space.  Again I went with the mini-grid and of course chose gold.
  2. Once you pick out the gallery layout you want, then you upload your photos! Y’all I loved this because it is a pain to have to open up the backs of each frame and make sure your picture is perfectly aligned. Such a time saver.
  3. Order, and then wait for it to arrive.
  4. Hang the template – once your frames arrive it will come with a tracing kit that is so simple. Rick just hung the tracing kit up put the nails at the indicated spots. Then took the template off the wall.
  5. Place pictures on the nails. That’s it.

Guys, when I tell you this was one of the easiest projects to date.  It took under 30 minutes.

 

**Quick note: I wish my images looked more cohesive.  I think when ordering again I will either choose black and white OR have each picture coordinate.  The images I currently have in there I do not feel look cohesive. I would definitely recommend putting images in the frames that are from 1 photoshoot look OR doing black and white.

The mini-grid is not their largest frame lay-out. I think in our next home I want to have a floor to ceiling gallery wall!

I hope this helps give you some motivation to do this project if it had been on your to-do list! Very pleased that I did it.
