Create a Gallery Wall to Cover Up the Uglies in the Basement


My basement is finished, but for some reason the builder put UGLY utility boxes smack dab in the middle of the wall...and they are so big, you really can't cover them with a piece of single art. I decided to use my favorite family photos and 3M Command Strips to create a Gallery Wall to camouflage those ugly utility boxes. I definitely had to get creative when it came to hanging the frames.

    Susan I say that ALL the time to the men in my family! I always read directions. But then I've always read anything with words on it. I'm an obsessive reader.
