Gallery Wall Short Tutorial

This is just a small tutorial on how I've gotten to where I am with the gallery wall

I started out by picking up several different sized and shaped black frames. I've gotten all of mine from Ikea, so far. I wanted them to all feel the same, without being the same. But I will get some different ones as fillers. More on that later.

I also plan on using the wooden "P" we got for our wedding. We also got a moss covered "P" for our anniversary that I might use for the wall. Or for the front door. (Not sure yet Rachel)

I wanted to see what it would all look like so I laid the frames that I had on the floor. I just put them in the places I thought they should go. No real pattern. I really like how it looks so far.

These frames will only take up about 1/3 of the wall. And all of the frames aren't filled yet.

When I figured out how they would go I started tracing the frames.

This is not newspaper, it's tissue paper. I would recommend not using this. But it's all I had. And I wanted to do it, now.

After I ran out of tissue paper and newspaper I started taping them to the wall.

This is as far as I've gotten. I REALLY like the layout. Can't wait to get the actual frames up. You can see in certain areas that the spacing is a little off. I plan on filling it up with little random things we have.

I can't wait to finish this project. It's really going to bring the room together :)
