Gallery Wall Tips & Tutorials

Let's see, first I purchased the frames in 1 fowl {fowl or foul? I can never tell} swoop, from Ikea. They're mostly the famous Ribba with a few dark brown Fjallsta frames thrown in for contrast. Total, they cost less than $80.
Planning the layout was rather arduous. First, I had to lay out all the frames on the sales floor at Ikea. Couldn't really tell which ones would work so I convinced my handsome husband we "needed them all".
I used the butcher paper you get free from Ikea -you know, the paper they let you take to protect your breakables? Yeah? So I used that stuff to cut out out squares correlating with the frame sizes. Once I'm all hung up, I use a level and some mounting putty to make sure none of the frames will shift when people walk by or if when you dust, hee, hee. Mounting putty is like 2 bucks, a little goes a long way, and it's reusable.
Most of my "art" are DIY projects, so make sure to check out any tutorials that interest you.
