Gallery Wall Inspiration and Ideas

One of the projects on my Fall DIY and Craft List is to work on a Gallery Wall for the area above our family room couch. Though Fall has thrown a wrench in some of my plans with a crazy schedule, sick kids, and "budget constraints," I've still had the project at the back of my mind. I have a few new things and some ideas, but bringing it all together still needs to happen. Today, I've got a great round-up of Gallery Wall Ideas and Inspiration for those of us who need some home decor help!

    I'm obsessed with gallery walls! I probably have (or will have) one in almost every room in my house, big or small. They're just wonderful. Love the post with all the different ideas.

  5. This is great! We just put one up in our living room. I still need to print all the pictures off to go in them but I am super excited about what the finish product will look like.
    My favorite inspirational picture you shared is the last one. I love how neat and orderly it looks. It also works as one whole piece of artwork. Very pretty!

  6. Thanks for the great inspiration. Like me, I have a super busy fall with soccer, work, painting a bedroom to get ready for a foster child, and the gallery wall just keeps getting pushed to the bottom of the list ugh!! I can't wait to accomplish this project. It needs some careful planning. Hope it moves to the top soon.

  8. My favorite is the heirloom photo gallery. I'd love to do something like that going up my steps.

  9. I really like the look of a gallery wall, but my hubby isn't really a big fan. Our hallway might be a good spot for you. It's not a spot that you'd stare at all day. But I definitely like the look of a gallery wall that's more symmetrical than one that just has random pics and items thrown together. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do.

    Hope your little one was feeling better today! =)

  11. Fantastic post! I couldn't pin (when I tried, it opened another tab with the same post...strange)so I've saved it to my favourites. Thanks for all the great links and tips!

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
