There's nothing I love more than a good gallery wall!
When we moved, we had a TON of frames. This is no exaggeration. I had at least 100!
All these frames were various colors-black, brown, oak. That all changed with a little white spray paint.
My favorite frames, for sure, are the swirly ones.
I found a whole rack of swirly awesomeness there!
I also love love this little round frame I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
It was originally white, but I needed it to break up all the white I had going on. So, I went on the hunt for the *perfect* yellow. Oh, I found it. It's called Hubbell House Yellow by Valspar.
Not too bright and sun-shiney, and not too mustard. A great in between.
Here it is in action:
The oval open frame I had. I just removed the glass and backing. The square one, and the yellow flower, is from Hobby Lobby.
The best tip I can give you when creating a gallery wall, is to cut out pieces of paper the size of your frames, and tape that up first. Like this:

I forgot to take a picture of this step, but this saved me a lot of time! It's so much easier to move around pieces of paper. Also, you aren't making a million holes in your wall to figure out where the frames should go!
I love seeing our fun memories as I go up and down the steps each day. Every home needs a gallery wall!
