GALLERY WALL

A couple months after buying an insane number of frames at Ikea and combing through Pinterest and my hard drive for my favorite little prints and pictures, I finally have my gallery wall up!  

I took these pictures at night, so the lighting is more than awful, but I'm so happy with how it turned out!  






And, here's a little tip:  Instead of punching a bunch of holes in the wall trying to figure out the arrangement I liked, I used PowerPoint shapes in the dimensions of my frames to move the "pictures" around before I hung them.


Plus, I knew I loved Martha Stewart's technique of placing frames above and below an imaginary center line, so I used that as a starting point.


Plus, this project was so inexpensive!  Ikea frames are lovely, but exceptionally affordable, and I got all those pictures printed by Snapfish for $15.  Seriously.

Happy Friday!
