Time to Make a Gallery Wall

I realize I'm a big late to this party but I finally created a gallery wall in my house.  I didn't start out with the intentions of creating this but things got a little carried away and here we are.



 My Tips for a Great Gallery Wall ...

1.  I prefer the look of only one or two different coloured frames.  I chose gold and black and by using some Rub 'n Buff magic I was able to reuse some white frames that were about to go to the thrift store.



2.  I framed some of my recent fabric acquisitions.  Fabric or scrapbook paper is a great way to bring colour to wall.

TGIF.  I hope you have some fabulous plans for this weekend.

  12. Fabulous - and I love how you've mixed styles and patterns. Also very clever on the framing - I just send out some paintings to get professionally framed and it was a hideous price!

  14. I love that your gallery wall is uncluttered. Some people get carried away with theirs and I don't know where to start looking. It gives me a headache. I'm going to work on my wall this weekend and use yours as inspiration. Thanks for the tips.

  16. Pretty! I'm still a little jealous of your awesome fabric acquisition. :) And I've never heard of this Rub-n-Buff magic...what exactly does it do?

  17. That looks fabulous! I wish I could commit to even just one piece of artwork!

  18. Love this! I've been pinning gallery wall photos for weeks since mine didn't turn out how I wanted - I realized my frames are too small and I need mats around the prints. I love how you incorporated fabric, which I may copy since I've got some lovely scraps laying around. To Ikea for frames!
