Gallery wall

There are probably a million and one gallery wall pictures on blogland if not more than than.  Sorry if you’ve seen enough, just avert your eyes as here comes some pictures of one I just created.

I’ve wanted a gallery wall for some time now but never really thought of the right place for it in my apartment.  I decided that there isn’t any right wall and went with the wall I probably look at the most, the wall in my living room with the TV  on it.

It’s probably not the prettiest gallery wall but hey, it’s mine.  I finally have one.

I didn’t really do any measuring, most of it was trial and error.  I had seven nails in the wall already from some fabric covered frames I had hanging there so I started with them and then kept adding other hangers.

I think there was only one nail that I ended up changing.  Not all the items are as centered as I’d like but this is going to be a revolving display.  Or at least I hope it will be as most of the items on it are listed in my Etsy store so although I love looking at the wall, I’d be happy to have to redo it if and when things sell.

Maybe one of my sisters who didn’t quite understand a lone empty frame I had hanging on another wall will get what I was hoping for.

I do think the TV is a bit distracting in this picture but hey, it works for me.
I’ve got my gallery wall and love looking at it.

  1. I ADORE this! It looks so awesome! I love all the different colors. I have a rule that whenever I go into a thrift store I have to know what I'm going to do with a piece before bringing it home and I always see a bunch of rad frames. I now have an excuse to bring more of them home! Thanks for sharing! =)

  3. Avert my eyes, I will not! Your use of color is much different than the 100s of gallery walls I've seen in my adventures in blogland...

    I'd be oh so happy if you could share this with my readers tonight @Creative Juice Thursday. Get your crafting shoes on... Hope to see you there...

  13. Visiting from FJI! Yes, I've seen a thousand gallery walls, but never one like this! The colors you've used are fantastic. Replace the pink with orange, and this would fit right into my condo! In fact, you may have given me an idea on how to fill one large wall in my living room. You did great on this!!

    I started a weekly link party (on Sundays) over at Addicted 2 Decorating. I hope you'll come link up!
