{How-To} Gallery Wall Evolution

Last week I helped my good friend vamp up her living room wall by creating a gallery/feature wall. They have a large family room with very tall ceilings, so trying to divert the eye from the TV, and instead give you something prettier to look at was the key.  We gathered all the frames she had and laid it out on the floor before nailing everything to the walls, just to be sure we fancied the layout.  Once we landed on a layout we liked, up it went! This post is to show you the evolution of her gallery wall, as it's not quite finished yet. In the "Progress" picture, I labeled lots of little things to show you what our future plans are for the wall.  I think we can all agree the progress is so much better than the before! {And if you're wondering why the wall color looks so different, it's actually the same wall color in all pictures.  The lamp was on and it was dark outside in the first one!}





With the addition of the few things mentioned above, their family gallery wall will be complete. Eventually all the frames will be black & white filled with adorable family photos- and let me tell you, this family is quite adorable. I have the privilege of watching these two cuties and being close friends with their lovely mama. If you're interested in following their journey to adopting a new baby, follow Kate's blog here. It's a true inspiration.

Happy Monday!

  4. Oh, so fun! I love gallery walls because they are so personal. I have a blank wall in my kitchen that is begging for a gallery to be put on it. :)
