Gallery Wall

A trend that will never die.  Whether it is family photos or artwork, a collection of items hanging on a wall together looks good.

Arrangement can be difficult and seem daunting.  How am I going to fill that space and make sure that it all fits and looks good?!

My new house had a HUGE wall that needed to be filled so I had to figure it out.  I started by picking out my biggest pieces of artwork and laying them out on the floor.  I moved them around until I found an arrangement I liked.  Then I took a picture of that arrangement so I wouldn’t forget it!

These are just examples of the arrangements I tried out because as you can see from the featured image, neither of these arrangements ended up on the wall. 

Next I cut out the shapes of what I wanted to hang so that I could arrange them on the wall without banging a million holes in the wall.

Again, you can see that even at this step my decision was not finalized.

Lay out the items, try different arrangements, take some pictures, make some paper cut outs, try hanging them again then finally decide and hang the gallery wall.  *sigh*  I am not going to lie, it was a lot of work but that is why I do what I do.  So you don’t have to!
