DIY Gallery Wall

IMG_1107

Hello my fellow InBetweeners! Today's post is about a gallery wall that my mom and I put up in our new house. It was a weekend project - from putting the photos into the frames to measuring on the wall to actually putting it up. It takes a little bit of patience, but it is definitely worth it in the end! We decided that 12 frames was a good number to have on our size wall. We did 3 frames that hold an 8x10'' photograph, and 9 frames that hold a 4x6''. The frames are sitting on slender wall shelves that allow for us to change them up from time to time. The shelves were $9.99 each from Ikea. The frames are Ikea RIBBA white frames. The larger ones were $9.99 each and the smaller ones were $4.99 each. At the end of it all, it was a little costly since we decided to do 12 frames, but was definitely worth it! (Think of it as an investment to your living room) Also, by putting in your own photos (that you can get printed by Blacks for a steal or print yourself), you'll save yourself a lot of money. My gallery wall features the photographs that are up for sale on my Etsy shop melodyanneprints.

Ultimately, art gives life to spaces, especially smaller spaces! Hopefully this can give you some inspiration for a gallery wall of your own, whether it is smaller or larger!
