An Easy and Personalized Gallery Wall

301

 

Did you guys think I fell off the planet? I know, I know, it’s been a while but I’m back and so excited to share this gallery wall with you. It’s been up for a while but I’ve been making some changes and tweeking it a little here and there. I got the idea when we upgraded our old “tube” style television to the white flat screen Vizio. By the way, this television is awesome! It’s so lightweight and sleek, perfect for a very small bedroom like ours, and very affordable.
I don’t normally love the look of a TV in the bedroom but this one just blends right into the wall since I painted the room white. Speaking of the white walls, it does look really fresh and crisp but the room was seriously lacking in personality. That’s the great thing about a gallery wall. It can really bring a space to life and it can be created with practically anything. This is made up of items I collected over time and eventually it just came together.  The most important part of a gallery wall, to me, is that it be filled with things that you connect with. This one cost next to nothing but it’s filled with things that make me smile and are very personal.

Gallery Wall

1. A white fabric scrap that I painted with black paint and a piece of sponge.
2. A quote that I totally believe to be true. This is a free Printable from This is Elizabeth.  Seeing it every morning is good motivation.
3. I LOVE pretty mirrors! This one was half off at Garden Ridge so I got it for $7.00.
4. This is a very sweet thank you note we received. I just love anything with the letter K.
5. This awesome print is a folder! I found it at Target. I just thought it looked so eclectic and the best part is, if I ever get tired of looking at it I can take it down and use it at work.
6. I found this print at an antique mall for $5.00. I think it has a moody but pretty vibe. It reminds me of the time I lived in Europe.
7. This one is a drawing by my husband. It’s hard to see here, but it has a whimsical feel.  He is so good at drawing and I wish he would do it more often.

Elements of a Gallery Wall

 

The frames are a combination of thrift store finds, clearance purchases and spray paint. I always buy frames when I find them on sale. Even if I don’t have a place for them I know I’ll use them eventually. No matter what’s going in the frame, a little spray paint and a white mat board can make anything look more chic and expensive.

      Thanks Sheryll! You may have more supplies than you think. Shop your house for items to pull together. Greeting cards, thanks you notes, wrapping paper, fabric scraps, …. and you can always find cheap frames at thrift stores.

      Thanks so much Lyndsay! Yeah, I think a gallery wall is always a classic look. I’m working on a gallery wall of mirrors in my hallway:)
