Saturday Morning Share: A ‘How To’ for Creating a Gallery Wall
The Collaged Wall
I woke up early today…decided to take this quiet time to thumb through various design blogs. I came across this post from Little Black Door…a ‘how to’ for creating a gallery wall…see link below.
In the post she discusses finding inspiration from images on Pinterest…and then creating a collage-look with different styles of frames and types of images. But the most valuable bit of information in the post is that she described and photographed the process for the placement/hanging of the frames. First, making paper templates of each frame to use when deciding on wall placement for the frames…and then the next step, MARKING the paper template where the hook is located so you will know where to put your nail. Ah-ha, no more walls full of nail holes!
Gallery walls are a wonderful way to create a sense of place in an area of your home that is often over-looked…hallways, corners, entrances, bathrooms, etc. Plus if you have a collection…show it off. Hope this info. will make the process feel a bit less daunting.
