Here’s a fun way to put together a festive, but super simple gallery wall. I know that creating gallery walls can be hard for some people, and I think it’s because some folks like a plan. This gallery corner wall is for you, my planning friends! It’s in a nice easy to see grid shape. On the left you have a lovely 3 x 4 grid and on the right you have a 3 x 3 grid. Now just start collecting frames and hanging!
Here’s what you need:
- Frames of various sizes
- Spray paint in various colors – this project uses yellow, turquoise and white
- Command™ Picture Hanging Strips in Small, Medium and/or Large, depending on the sizes of the frames
- A blank corner or wall
Here’s the gallery wall secret ingredient, and here’s the post where I gush about my Command™ Picture Hanging Strips love. You can buy these magical picture hanging strips on Amazon.
And here’s the boring, no fun, corner before it got a makeover…
And here is the corner gallery wall starting point.
Step 1 – Clean the wall
Clean the wall surface with isopropyl rubbing alcohol, wipe gently and let dry
Step 2 – Connect Strips
Remove the Command™ Brand Picture Hanging Strips from the package and separate each strip. To form a set, connect two strips together until you hear a click.
Pro Tip: If using medium strips, one set of strips is needed for a frame up to three pounds, two sets for frames up to six pounds, and four sets of strips needed for frames up to twelve pounds.
Step 3 – Attach to frame
Remove one green liner and position one set of strips on the back of the frame. Press the strip firmly against the back of the frame. Repeat with the remaining strips needed to hang the frame
Step 4 – Continue with all frames
Remove the remaining green liners from the strips adhered to the back of the frame
Step 5 – Position frame
Position the frame on the wall and press the front of the frame against the wall for 30 seconds
Step 6 – Remove frame
Remove the frame by grabbing at the bottom corners and pulling up and out towards you. Half of the strip will be left on the wall, and half of the strip will be left on the frame.
Step 7 – Wait
Wait one full hour before remounting the frames to the wall.
You can make the frames any color or colors you’d like! Spray paint is your friend.
Here’s the grid in action. I decided to do 3 evenly-ish spaced rows. Don’t forget to take the glass out of a few frames and play with the idea of framing a frame or get really crazy and frame 2 frames, ha! Tip: I like things in odd numbers, so if you notice, I have 7 colored frames, 3 turquoise and 4 yellow all mixed in with the white frames.
Here’s the gallery wall in progress.
And here she is almost finished! Another tip: make sure and think about where lamps and other accessories are going to be. You don’t want to end up covering up frames.
And here’s a night time shot:
Oh and one more tip, for tiny frames, don’t be scared to doodle in something cute or write a simple word, like this little cookies and milk doodle:
