In no way related to my wardrobe or style choices for the day, I’ve become bored in my beige colored wall apartment last mentioned here. When I moved into my place, a few months back, I half-heartedly attempted to decorate it by piecing together a gallery wall in my bedroom…that needless to say crashed [literally] & burned rather quickly. I didn’t have the number or type of prints I wanted & I knew hunting them down would not be an overnight situation but decided to hang anyways. Mistake #1.
After a few months of acquiring favorites from all over [Etsy, Pinterest, etc] I tried again. This time my little Saturday afternoon project was abundantly fruitful. I immediately started thinking up titles for my home improvement reality show that I would most ceratinly snag after this successfully completed home D.I.Y. Obviously…
Some tutorials suggest you measure out the placement of the frames with some sort of measuring appartatus & painter’s tape before you take a hammer to your wall. Daredevil that I am, I hung the print that I wanted to be the center focal point where I thought it looked best. I then used trial & error to place the rest. There’s been some moving around & there are a few extra pinhole nail marks in my drywall but no one was injured in the process, I didn’t have to measure 12 different sized frames, & I do what I want. If you want a well-planned tutorial check out this video tutorial or this step-by-step write up. If you’re a regular human, just start hammering.
