Gallery Wall Fun

Anyone who has ever been on Pinterest knows the popularity of the gallery wall. My original obsession with it began last summer. I found some frames I liked, cut out paper to plan the organization on the wall, and waited for my handy hubby to help me. A year later we had nothin'. Enter summer vacay and a plethora of time to troll around Pinterest and reignite my excitement, much to my hubby's chagrin. 

I set out for IKEA with a new plan in mind and stocked up on frames. I decided that the organization freak in me wouldn't do well with the "organized clutter" look. I wanted a pattern and plan. I bought enough frames to keep the IKEA frame section in business and got to planning. David wasn't super comfortable with making a gajillion holes in the wall so he researched some and found these awesome sticky things from 3M.  We highly suggest these for all your wall hanging needs!

If you follow me on Instagram you know this was a work in progress. We had to hang a picture, wait an hour for the stickers to adhere. Put the picture up, then space the next set of frames out and continue.

It may have taken all week, but the frames are all up! Next step is getting some pictures in those frames. . .


  1. It looks great!! My husband and I have photos EVERYWHERE, and actually just talked about getting more artwork, and consolidating our wedding photos to a gallery wall. Y'all did an awesome job at keeping everything straight..we're so bad at that!

  2. IKEA is the best!! It looks great! Can't wait to see it again with pictures. :)
