Gallery walls tend to add so much character, and statement to a room. I’ve always loved them for that reason alone, but they can also be so meaningful when you’re adding family photos to them.
I have always wanted to have a gallery wall but the task always seemed a little daunting. What size frames? Mating? Photo size? It all seemed overwhelming. I was so excited when I found Custom Photo Frames because they took all of those worries right away! I shared my vision, and they helped me through every step with ordering. I wanted my frames to make a statement and have a timeless look. They helped me bring that to life. I had never actually had any family photos printed before, so these were going to be so special to me. We usually moved around a good bit so I never felt like hanging a bunch of photos. Now I wish I had!
I had a photo of a friend’s gallery wall I loved so I used that as an idea, so that is how I picked my sizes. For my moulding, I chose a wood color that would blend well with the rest of my decor, and next I picked the hardware for the back. I chose hanging wire since I figured that would be the easiest in the hanging process.
When the frames arrived I got to work with the help of my family. I ordered a hanging tool which was a huge help in hanging them. Ahead of time, I had cut out pieces of paper that were the same size as my frames so I could get an idea of how I wanted them positioned so there was less work. I left the pieces of paper up on the wall until we measured the space to make sure they were all even in terms of spacing. I used a level to ensure all the photos were straight once they were hung.
This gallery wall pulls my entire living space together in such a special way. Not only are they a design statement, but they have such special memories displayed in them. I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!
