Gallery Wall How To

I thought I'd do a quick post about how we made our gallery wall.  We have a ton of framed pictures so we thought making a gallery wall in our dining room would be a good way to display some of them. 

Step 1: Choose a wall.

Step 2: Measure the wall and make a template. We used plan paper to do this.

Step 3: Come up with a layout.

Step 4: Trace all the frames on the paper.

Step 5: Put the paper up on the designated wall.

Step 6:  Measure where the hooks are on the frames and nail right through the paper.

Step 7:  Remove paper and hang pictures in their designated positions.

As you can see it's not quite finished, a few of the frames are still waiting for pictures but overall we are happy with how it turned out. 

And just an extra, Eric's dad painted us this picture for Christmas. We love it!  It's hard to see from far away but it's a road leading into the mountains with the sun setting above it.  The best part is that Eric, Layla Jane & I are standing on the road.

Here's a closer look...
