This summer I have been busy with a lot of projects. My favorite has been the start of 3 gallery walls all in different areas of my home. The great thing about a gallery wall is that it can be a bunch of random things, hung in a thoughtful way, that look cohesive. My goal in doing these walls was to do them with things I already had. My only purchase was the "T" on my bedroom wall. Of course a gallery wall can be done with frames that are all the same style, but what fun would that be! :)
This is my bedroom wall. I like how it looks but I could also add to it over time.
This is my daughter's bedroom wall. Her's is a collection of more random things. The only purchase was the scrapbook paper that I put in a frame that I had. This frame was originally black but I spray painted it white.
My hall wall continues to be a work in progress. If you don't have pictures the size of your frame, give your kiddo paint or crayons in your color theme and have them go at it. I have no idea what this painting is, but it was done by one of my kids and is a precious addition to the wall.
I mentioned that my purchase for my daughter's wall was scrapbook paper. This is such an inexpensive way to bring pattern, color and design to a room.
Here are a few other places I have used scrapbook paper. The letters you see on top of the paper were just printed off of the computer and glued on.
