Gallery Wall

So, this is where I started last year . . .

Office start

I know, not horrible, but not so exciting either.  It took lots of paint samples to make the final color decision but I finally settled on Valspar Deep Sea Dive (eggshell) . I’m in love! When I finished painting I was a bit panicky that I had gone a tad over-board but the gallery really brightens things up, don’t you think?

Gallery Wall -main - White Tulip DesignsI started by measuring the wall and cutting out a large piece of paper to match the measurements. (I used an old roll of wrapping paper.) Then I placed the different things I wanted to include in different places until everything came together the way I wanted.

Gallery Wall 1After that, I traced each piece and marked for the hanger/s on the back.  Then I taped my giant guide to the wall and either nailed through the paper or marked where the nail/anchor would go (depending on the size of the frame.) Except a little blank spot where I have a project that will be featured later. (shhhhh)

This gallery wall is amazing! Thanks so much for sharing the time saver not to mention a nail saver by marking the layout on paper. Totally genius. We appreciate you linking up to the Something to Talk About Link Party and we can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next week! All the best, CoCo

Your gallery wall turned out great! Love the idea of laying everything out and tracing it before committing to hammering in a nail 🙂 Thanks for linking up and sharing!

FYI the link leading to the before doesn’t work… or didn’t for me… so I dug. Sorry I missed that post! 🙂

Ahh! You must be so pleased with this!

Wow. It looks great. You have been busy. I love the idea of marking the layout on a piece of paper. Much better than having the hubby and kids stand there holding everything up!
