You know that one wall, the one that has been begging for attention? You'd like to add some character and interest, but you have no idea where to start? Enter Gallery Walls! You can create a beautiful display items that are important to you in just a couple of hours.
At Remodelaholic, we are about tutorials that are affordable and doable. Check out our video that gives great details and hints for hanging a perfect gallery wall.
Here is where you probably find yourself, staring at a blank wall. With our easy process, you'll have those frames hung in no time.
Go frame hunting. Maybe you have a bunch of random frames. You can also look at yard sales, Goodwill, etc. Spray painting them a cohesive color brings attention to your photos, not the frames.
Draw up an general layout of how many frames you are going to use.
Command Strips are our go-to for hanging items on walls. They can be removed, without any wall damage, when you are ready to change your decor. Anchor your photo grouping with a large center photo, making sure it is centered and level.
Now, using a jig (of sorts), begin adding your other frames around the large one you centered. Make sure to see our blog post for more details on creating this jig.
Before you know it, you're done. You've created a gallery wall that showcases your loves and interests!

    My walls have a spiky texture to them like it was applied with a sponge, what do you use to hang the pictures,or do you sand down the walls.

    I have already done this, though I did do it with nails. I just eyeball it, because I’ve done it for years, but definitely lots of fun. I try to get only black drones. Some have gold lines in them, most plain, but that helps to mix it up a bit.
