Seems like gallery walls are all the rage in home decor these days but buying frames and artwork can add up very quickly. By keeping an eye out at garage sales or flea markets it is possible to create a rich-looking gallery wall for less.
The great thing about gallery walls is there is really no wrong way to create one. You can mix and match modern frames with vintage ones or keep everything consistent with one style.
When creating the gallery wall, think about the spacing. You typically want two to four inches between the frames. If you’re not sure I recommend making a template. Use pieces of paper, trace the frames and tape the templates to the wall. This way you can play with the spacing without having an extra dozen holes in your wall. Trust me, your husband will thank you for this!
What are my favourite places currently to find unique frames and art?
- Twisted Goods
- Stonewaters Home Elements (in Canmore, Alberta)
Definitely keep your personal style in mind when choosing images for the gallery wall. Personal photos and things give you the opportunity to show others who you are and what you love.
