The Making of Our Gallery Wall

Hey y'all!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

A while back I decided that I wanted to do a gallery wall in our house & I finally made that come to life a few weeks ago!  It's not a very big one or anything but, it is a gallery wall to call ours.  After we got our engagement pictures back I thought this was the perfect way to show off some of our favorites from the bunch!

I got my original inspiration from Julie @ The Girl in the Red Shoes when I stumbled upon a post she did a while back updating & creating her gallery wall.  I instantly fell in love with how she placed the picture frames & that it is all one solid color (except mine has some color within because that was an after thought for m).

While I didn't think to put frame sized papers on the wall like smarty Julie did, I first laid out all the frames on the floor & figured out just how I wanted them placed on the wall when hung up.
I moved every frame around multiple times... this final decision did not come quickly.  After all, I did want to come home & like what I saw in my living room each day!

So, my lovely assistant (a.k.a. fiance Matt) & I started hanging frames.  & yes, I need help hanging frames so I can see exactly where they're at.  

Here's our finished gallery wall!



I am so in love with the way it turned out!  Everyday I come home & open the front door & look straight into the living room & this is what I get to see!  Love it!!!

The "Y" I found at First Monday last month.
The 2 oval frames I've had for a while & they were black, I painted them the current color.
The turquoise frame was originally red & bought from Hobby Lobby - I painted it as well.
The "and" sign (or ampersand) is also from Hobby Lobby along with the other 2 frames.
The "Southern" sign I made... more on that later this week.  :)

Do you have a gallery wall?

Do you like solid colors or colors mixed in?

I would love to see your gallery wall too!

Hope y'all have a great day!

XOXO,

Shayna
