Hi everyone, Claire here with my latest transformation, and this project just might be my favorite to date. Two weeks ago I asked for your opinion on which gallery wall of frames you liked best, and you all responded with such wonderful ideas that I couldn’t wait to get started. As I began collecting my frames, I kept your suggestions in mind, and soon realized that my home called for a gallery wall that’s slightly more eclectic than the ones I originally posted. So after putting my own personal twist on it, my unadorned wall was transformed into a story of my life, travels, art, and my design aesthetic… making it the perfect entry wall to greet visitors. Keep reading to for an instructional step-by-step!

  • thrifted old frames
  • nails
  • hammer
  • level
  • pencil
  • spray paint
  • command sticky tabs
  • double sided photo tape
  • personal memorabilia (photo’s, postcards, artwork, etc.)
  1. Center a large frame as your starting point.
  2. Working outward around your central frame, starting placing frames. Then level, mark with a pencil and nail into place.
  3. Once positioned, choose a few scattered frames to remove and spray in the colors of your choice, keeping frame proximity in mind. I chose gold, purple and orange for added color.
  4. Re-hang freshly painted frames, and place art, pictures and personal momentos in the frames of your choosing using double sided photo tape.
  5. Straighten frames, and voila! Your blank wall is now a gallery wall for everyone to enjoy.
