Photo Gallery Walls

I’m finally getting around to hanging things on the walls in our new house, and it is SUCH a great feeling. I’ve never been one for blank walls, so I’ve been having a blast getting things up and situated.

People often ask my opinion on how and where to hang pictures, and I feel like I never know what to tell them. The reason for that is because I LOVE to hang in tens, which means I’m a big fan of GALLERY WALLS. I know not everyone loves them and still like to hand in threes, but I love as much decor and as many photos as possible. Because of that, I wanted to share some ideas on some gallery walls I’ve seen on the web to maybe inspire you while you are hanging items in your home. There really are so many options, so it’s completely up to you how to do it. You can continue to hang in smaller numbers or finally embrace the gallery walls like I have. Either way, I’d love to see pictures from your home, so be sure to email me them!!

I think you will find having lots of pictures will make you happy. I LOVE looking around my home and seeing all those I love adorning the walls. ๐Ÿ™‚

For this gallery wall in my home, I found all the frames at Goodwill for a total of $8! I spray painted them all black and then got all my pictures printed for about $10. Because I like to change things up the hubby suggested I use Command Strips to hang the pictures so that is what I did. I first had everything laid out to know how to hang them and went from there. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It may have been time consuming but I LOVE how it turned out!!

Since then, I’ve done a myriad of gallery walls…

  1. Alright, so it may be just me…but I can't get the link to the suggestions for more photo wall layouts to work. And I REALLY need the help in that arena. I've been gathering frames for a while now when I catch them on the cheap but I can't figure out how to get them all up and look cute. I really like vinyl idea and may have to steal that.

  2. I LOVE this idea! I'm going to have to work up some plans to do something similar in my house! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the idea. Btw, I'm following now, hoping to see more great ideas like this one! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Would love to have you link this up to my {wow me} wednesday link party going on right now over on my blog. Hope to see you there. :)Ginger

  8. hey
    i just found your sight through pinterest because i loved your schematics of all the different wall designs and the dimension of pictures you used. i would love to show some of my photo clients these schematics so they will have a better idea of what size pictures to order. i wanted to ask you if i could use these images printed out or if it is something you are selling. and how i can get a bigger, higher resolution copy that would print well. thank you so much. im in love now with lots of things on your blog but this was the thing that got me here and before i used your pics i wanted to ask permission. just to be clear its the last two images that are not your real pictures but just the layout designs. thanks

    1. Hi Ashley! Thank you for the comment. Those images are actually something I found on Pinterest that I was unable to track to the original sources. I should make up some of my own similar though because it would be super easy!! Can you shoot me an email in the next week or two {} to remind me and bug me to do it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Thank you for all the great links and ideas for a photo wall! I am thinking it’s finally time to do something like this with all our family pictures.

  10. I love this photo wall!!! I don’t have access to a Cricut machine. Would you ever consider making & selling the vinyl words? I would love it!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Looove this!! Butttt where did you get the vinyl!? You and another said you cut your own. Let me in on the loop lol i can’t wait to do this!

  12. Love your wall!! Working on a similar one for my home office. I have a new cricut machine… What cartridge do you use for the word fonts?? I don’t have cute ones & need to buy. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp
    so much approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it
    or something. I believe that you could do with some % to drive the message house
    a bit, however other than that, this is excellent blog. A great read.
    I’ll definitely be back.

    1. I did it myself but do not do custom orders. Anyone who has a vinyl machine can do them, though. I would search for those who do custom vinyl orders and they should be able to help you out. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I love the dining room arrangement but I’m having a hard time figuring out what sizes the smaller frames are, do you know?
