Everyday Design Dilemma Part 3: Gallery Walls ~ The Reveal

Hey y'all! I'm back! Miss me?!? You've probably been wondering what the heck happened to me and why I've dropped off the face of the earth this summer. Truth is, it's just been busy!! And instead of swamping myself with extra work, I just decided to take a break and enjoy this summer. In a few weeks my youngest starts kindergarten (gah!) so this will be my last chance to hit the zoo a few times and do some other activities we won't be able to once the kids are in school everyday. Sniff! Sniff! We travelled to Canada a few times and are getting ready to head to California for a week! One last big bang to say good bye to summer! We are taking the kids to Legoland, Disneyland and a few other places around the greater Los Angeles area. I cannot wait!! It will be a blast. The kids are beyond excited. Anyways....back to Gallery Walls! 


Awhile back, I posted a series all about How to create your own Gallery Wall. Part 1 talked about planning your gallery wall, part 2 talked about tips on installing your gallery wall, and now I'm FINALLY ready to reveal mine!! 


I used a wall in the front hall that leads to the kitchen and created a gallery Wall filled with images of all our past travels. I also left a little wiggle room to fill with more images of our future travels by filling a space with a mirror, as well as adding more than 1 photo from the same vacation. You better believe a picture of our family trip to Disney will be up there soon!! 


  
I didn't want to spend a fortune on this gallery wall, so I used a variety of frames from Ikea, Target and Michael's, as well as a few thrifted ones sprayed white. I also wanted a cohesive look, so I used all white and silver frames. Quick Tip: 3M Command strips are your best friend for hanging less expensive and small frames that may not have the best hangers on the back! I used A TON of them. Also...does anybody spy the doorbell?! I didn't hide it, but made it look a lot less noticeable by blending it in around the frames.
