pinspiration: gallery walls

I have no idea how to create a gallery wall. For the past few months I have anxiously been staring at blank walls with my stash of frames sitting in a closet.  

It really shouldn’t be that hard. And if I make a mistake, it’s nothing a little putty and coat of paint won’t hide, right? But this project seems to really intimidate me, and the more I look to Pinterest for inspiration, the more confused and unsure I become. I want my gallery wall to look a little eclectic and slightly uneven, colourful but cohesive, a focal point but not to overpower the room…see the problem? 

I’ve picked a few pins to sum up the direction I want my gallery wall to take. Soon enough I’ll just have to pick a layout, cross my fingers, hang something up…and just make it work.

  1. Those are some great examples of well put together gallery walls. Don't worry about it being perfect, hopefully you've gotten the courage up to go for it. What's the worst that could happen.

    I'll stay tuned to see what you come up with :)

    1. Thanks Jessica!
      You're right -- there's noting a little putty and paint can't fix.
      I finally just got around to doing it :)
      I've been such a slacker since class ended. urgh.

      Hope you had a great holiday!
