Gallery Wall Details

I am super excited to share details of my gallery wall with y’all because it is one of my fave parts of our home. I know gallery walls aren’t for everyone, they can be such a headache to create! It really is a kind of art in its self to put together a bunch of art and stuff on a wall and make it all work.

This wall took us about 3 hours to put together and that was after we already had decided on most everything we wanted to hang. We spent the 3 hours deciding what order to hang it all.

First thing I can recommend to make it a bit easier and save your wall from too many unnecessary holes is to lay it all out on the floor and come up with a satisfying order before you pick up that hammer! I like picking one pretty centralized piece and working around it. 

Of course there is a plant (or two) somewhere near!

I wanted our wall to be a bit whimsical and playful so we have several unexpected items in our gallery. It’s also fun to add texture. Everything doesn’t have to be flat! I’m a huge fan of hanging abstract things on walls to bring depth and interest to a space.  

Bells and books!

Once you have settled on the order you want it all hung you can get started! 

I have added a few things here and there since our initial install day and I am pretty happy with where we are at now. 

 

Viv was a flower girl in our friends wedding back in August and wore this head piece. It was so pretty we decided to add it to the wall! Randomly fun addition!

Old books make everything better! We made this little book shelf with tobacco sticks we found at the Nashville Flea Market.

We got these old snow shoes from my in laws house. Totally unexpected but totally fit with the overall color scheme and earthy feel of the gallery!
