Hey, Hey! How are you all doing? I’m back to work this week after a long 12 day break. I’m pretty proud to say that I did get a lot of things done around the house over the break though, and one of them was creating a gallery wall in the living room.
I have always struggled with this wall and I have probably decorated it 30 different times. Literally, there are probably over 30 holes in the wall, you can imagine how my husband feels about that. I don’t have any of the original paint left so I’m not able to fill them, but I love how my new gallery wall covers most of them. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this sooner!
I put together a combination of things I already had, and some new things I got with some Christmas money. I might add things as I find them, but overall I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I would love to share it with you all!
I will post a list of sources at the end of the post.
Ohh I also wanted to share with you all how I hung all of these things without adding any more new holes to the wall. 3M Command Strips, they are seriously a life saver. I don’t hang anything with nails anymore since I found them. They make them in a few different size options, but the ones I hung the gather sign with can hold up to 16 pounds. So the possibilities are endless with these things.
All you need is some command strips and a level and you can easily make a gallery wall yourself. I just planned out my layout flat on the ground first and added the pieces one by one. I pressed the command strips on the back of the pieces and laid a level on them to make sure they were straight on the wall. Once they were straight I pressed hard for 30 seconds and they were totally stuck. So easy!
I also did a little re-arranging with my foyer. This little dresser used to be there but once I added the built-ins in the living room I had two extra console tables. I gave one to my sister and put the other in the foyer.
I even hung the shelf with them and feel totally secure adding decor to it. If you change your mind a lot like me, these will become your best friend. You can get them at most hardware stores, Target, even Amazon.
So what do you think? I’m really loving it! Do you have a gallery wall in your home? Do you think you will add one? Let me know! I also listed the sources for some of the things that I have on my wall below.
